Never short on inspiration, Charlotte Olympia has given us some pretty cool footwear options in the past. If you’re unfamiliar, check out the outrageous jingle-bell platforms we saw over the holidays, or the cutesy kitten flats I was coveting at Halloween. Sweet heart heels on Valentine’s Day, anyone?
You get the picture.
Now we have yet another of the label’s bright ideas on our hands, er, feet, with the just-released, of-the-minute arrival of the Cosmic Collection. A collection of suede loafer style flats that celebrate each sign of the zodiac with 12 embroidered, Swarovski crystal-encrusted designs. Check out the entire collection below.
I must admit, I’m absolutely smitten with the Cancer sign’s loafer. The nude suede couldn’t be more on trend, and the emerald encrusted crab (hello, colour of the year) is quirky, and totally beach-friendly. Can I still wear them if I’m a Gemini?
Wouldn’t life be easier if we all proudly wore our zodiac sign on our shoes? The awkward pickup line “What’s your sign?” would be rendered redundant, and think of all the things you’d have an excuse for.
Tend to be a little bit untidy? maybe you can’t help it because you’re a Gemini. Or are you stubborn as an ox? Well, that comes with the Taurus territory. Whatever your sign, you can let your accessories do the talking, and look cute in the meantime. And if you’re not sure what your sign says about you, each fun pair comes with a booklet that’ll tell you everything you need to know before you strut your stuff, and your sign.
These shoes would make a pretty amazing birthday gift for the person who has everything, and if you (or the birthday girl) love a set, there’s a matching jewel-box clutch for each shoe.
The collection doesn’t come cheap, however, with shoes going for $705 CAD at Net-a-Porter.com, and $1009 for the corresponding clutch. But make your move quick, because although they were just released this month, they’re selling out already.
What do you think? Would you wear your sign on your shoes?
