Charlotte-Olympia-Pre-Fall-2016-Platform-Sandal

Charlotte Olympia Electra sandal | 6″ / 155mm heel | available in pink satin at Zappos & Charlotte Olympia, in black embossed croc-effect leather at Net-A-Porter, black satin at Shopbop and black velvet at Moda Operandi for $995.00

For Charlotte Olympia’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection, a 1927 sci-fi film Metropolis is behind the inspiration.  From this collection titled “Mechanix” we see elegant shoe styles transformed with colorful network of cogs and wheels plus intricate circuit board embroidered prints. Electra features a crisscross vamp with a slingback strap, side buckled closure and chunky 40mm platform. We love these heels paired with a simple flirty layered skirt or vintage combo dress.

This season’s retro ready-to-wear calls for 1970s influenced footwear just like Kirkwood’s Maya platform sandal. Crafted with either high tortoiseshell leather, patent leather or smooth suede and finished with a chunky heel & 40mm platform. Maya is accented with a signature oversized floating feaux-pearl. We suggest pairing them with cropped wide-leg pants or pleated mini skirts.
