Come tomorrow, you'll officially be able to strut right into Charlotte Olympia's Bal Harbour shop, according to the Miami Herald. In their story, the designer, who actually goes by the name of Charlotte Dellal, mentions "Miami definitely marks a kind of milestone in the development of our brand in America. It's definitely a market to build our business in America."
Dellal, whose mom is Brazilian, is so excited about her Miami opening that she's created a capsule collection of shoes and clutches exclusively for her Miami shop. And in true Magic City form, they're either embroidered with flamingos or are meant to resemble an art deco beach umbrella. Are you jumping up and down in your heels too? We've contacted the team over at Charlotte Olympia for more deets about this glorious opening.
In the meantime, we've stumbled upon a rendering of what the store may look like by Giachi, an architecture firm who has also designed the stores of Louis Vuitton and Fendi in Florence, as well as many a Jimmy Choo location. Stay tuned, though; we're on the hunt for some actual pictures of the shop and capsule collection, which we totally plan on sharing with you after we've ogled them for a few minutes.
