Charlotte Olympia Pre-Fall 2013 Hollywoodland Collection

Hollywoodland-Charlotte-Olympia copy

This collection was inspired by the golden age of Hollywood, Art Deco design and classic-film leading ladies including Mae West & Rita Hayworth. Charlotte captured the decadence of the era by using film reel cut-out PVC, crystal-trimmed cabochon brooches, glitter fabric and mirrored gold leather panels.

The bags are equally thematic and my favorite styles are Take PandoraDeco Pandora and Box Office Pandora clutch. There’s even an adorable film strip headpiece too.

Charlotte has great timing since these show-biz glitzy designs emulate the glamour seen in the recent ‘The Great Gatsby’ blockbuster film.

Celebrities I would like to see wear this collection: Katy Perry, Dakota Fanning, Emilia Clarke, Selita Ebanks, Lana Del Rey and Emmy Rossum.

My top 10 favorites are featured below. You can shop this collection at Charlotte Olympia, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf GoodmanNet-A-Porter, Matches, MyTheresa.
