Charlotte Olympia is known for kitschy, fun cat flats and heels so high that they constitute weaponry. Cute weaponry. But she's delving into the world of "9 till 5" with a new collection of sensible heels. The range includes a pointy toe pump, a squared pump and a kitten heel in suede and leopard print, and will retail from $635 to $896. Thank goodness those shopping are gainfully employed.
Her fresh line of bags will focus more on the professional than her usual irreverent details too, with retro-style handbags, clutches and totes. One even comes with a pair of gloves that snap on the bag. Again, shoppers better be working women since the goods will go for $1,195 to $2,995. Look for both June 14 at Charlotte Olympia stores and site as well as Net-a-Porter.com.
