Charlotte Olympia x Tom Binns
Jewellery designer Tom Binns has paired up with super stylish shoe designer Charlotte Olympia on an edgy new collection specifically to celebrate the Costume Institute Gala in NYC this summer. Obviously they tried to stick with the theme Punk: Chaos to Couture. However, fear not, these feminine yet rebellious shoes and accessories still have an outstanding luxe-glam factor.
The six-piece collection is available online here and from Charlotte Olympia shops in Mayfair and Manhattan. Time to get very excited about all the safety pins, platforms, Perspex and the glorious array of metallic, neon and sultry black. The mirrored platform heel, so-called “Dolly Riot”, costs $1,490 and is littered with gold and silver safety pins. The already well-known “Kitty” pumps by Charlotte Olympia have been given a punk revamp by way of neon and pin decoration, costing $813. Her “Pandora” clutch also received the anarchist makeover treatment from Tom Binns, and costs $1,334.
