Olivia Black Velvet Glitter Shoes
Velvet how we love you. Glitter, we salute you, and all your sparkling loveliness. So you can imagine our excitement when the two come together in one truly stunning shoe. With such statement fabrics at work, we decided to let them do the talking, and kept the design of Olivia relatively simple. Sticking with our signature t-bar, we moved the strap higher so it sits around the ankle rather than over the foot, and added a soft scalloped ‘V’ shaped indent to the back part- a subtle nod to our well known vintage inspiration. It’s all these little touches which make the shoe so unique, and yet it is understated enough to compliment a wide array of different outfits, whether you’re getting married or going to an important do. There’s something about velvet which you don’t get with leather, and that’s a really wonderful texture- that’s why we kept the front of the shoe so simple, to really show this off, making sure the peep toe was the perfect shape to flatter the foot (and not show too much toe!).
We first launched Olivia for Autumn/Winter in two dark colourways- black with gold and dark green with copper. We were amazed at the reaction, and Olivia in dark green received the most likes we’d ever had on a single Instagram post (much to our excitement!). When we decided to put it into summer colours, some people thought we were mad introducing velvet for the summer (rebels, us). We say tradition doesn’t matter when something is this delicious, and are all for mixing up the fabrics whatever the season! We joke in the office that it’s the perfect day to night shoe- the velvet at the front is sophisticated and subtle, whilst the glitter at the back screams ‘party’!
Fits true to size, take your regular size.
