Charlotte Olympia’s electric Pre-Fall 2016 Mechanix collection was inspired by Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ sci-fi epic. It’s a match made in heaven for Charlotte’s signature retro style as the film portrays a “highly stylized futuristic city” complete with snazzy robots, 1920s’ glamour and of course a dramatic love plot. Here’s a look at our favorite 5 styles:
