Best known for flats with cat faces stitched on the toe and whimsical pumps embellished with everything from tiny showgirls to flamingoes, Charlotte Olympia is now making her contribution to the massive activewear market. Because for every kind of woman, there must be an athleisure line.
The footwear and accessories designer announced on Monday that she's hooked up with the London-based health club Bodyism, which focuses on giving its clients "long, lean" bodies (très fashion!), to create a 10-piece workout range. It includes $365 leopard neoprene sneakers with a lipstick mark at the toe, a $210 embroidered kitten sweater and $395 matching bag, and some printed leggings-n-tank sets. It's all very cute, and very Charlotte Olympia.
The full range will be on Shopbop later today and Bodyism's website by May 1, with the accessories available on Charlotte Olympia's website. And in fact, it's not the only casual capsule collection the designer has put out recently: she also did a line of flip flops for Havaianas.
