INCY BY CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA - Article - Irelands Leading Fashion Website - Fashion.ie
Charlotte Dellal owner of Charlotte Olympia has launched her debut range of children's footwear today. The collection is adorably titled Incy, after the nursery rhyme, Incy Wincy Spider – and the collection comes conveniently just as designer Charlotte Dellal prepares to welcome her third child.
Featuring six pretty and playful designs, the shoes are inspired by the footwear in the women's mainline collection. Dellal explains that the children’s shoes within the Incy collection are a mirror image of the adult versions "made miniature for Incy Wincy feet". The range features luxurious materials such as velvet, pony skin and Swarovski crystal detailing - with prices starting at £75 (€80 approx.) for baby shoes and reaching £295 (€320 approx.) for boots for older girls.
Third time mum-to-be Charlotte explained her dreams surrounding this collection "I always thought I'd design little shoes for little people as soon as I had a girl," Dellal told a reporter at the release. "However, with two boys now and a third child on the way, I decided to finally launch Incy regardless. Maybe I'll have a girl this time!"
As a nice extra touch, each pair sold will come with a colouring book and crayons. In addition, 10 per cent of all first month sales will be donated to The Art Room which is a UK charity offering art therapy to children and young people in order to "raise their self-esteem, confidence and independence". As a mum myself I love the donation that supports such important aspects of emotional childhood development.
The Charlotte Olympia Incy collection is available to buy exclusively from the Mayfair, Manhattan and Beverly Hills stores, as well as online at www.charlotteolympia.com.
When conducting further research into these designer shoes, I managed to spot some of my favourite celeb’s donning Charlotte Olympia flats.
