Charlotte Olympia – ABC 2015 by Joannah McGuinness
One of the biggest trends in fashion right now is personalized pieces. It was clear when world fashion icon Chiara Ferragni aka The Blonde Salad was photographed at fashion month rocking playful handbags and leather jackets, each adorned with personal phrases, that this trend was going to take off in a massive way and Charlotte Olympia was right on the ball.
Pleasing the inner child in all of us to no end, Charlotte Olympia have launched their new “ABC” range which comes in seven shades of a flat leather style, each accompanied with 52 adhesive leather stickers which includes 26 letters of the alphabet and 26 illustrations representing “the world of Charlotte Olympia” which of course includes the brand’s signature cat.
The success of the brands “Kitty flat”, aka thee must have flat for fashionistas everywhere, will no doubt be replicated by the ABC capsule collection. There is something a little special about having a personalised piece, a theory proven by the “fash pack favoured” Burberry initialled scarves that hit the runway for F/W ’14 and instantly became the must have item of the season.
Charlotte Olympia did warn customers that the adhesives “are not like playground stickers” and once they are on the leather you have officially committed to the design as they cannot be removed….as if life’s decisions weren’t already tough enough!
