If you love kittens and shoes, you'll love these.
Fashion designer and creator of Charlotte Olympia, Charlotte Dellal is known for her quirky luxury bags, shoes and accessories. One of her most popular items are her signature kitty flats. They are cute, quirky and the perfect amount of stylish. These are the kind of flats that make you forget what heels are giving you the opportunity to be both comfortable and fashionable minus the extra inches.
Since this flat happens to be such a hit in the world of fashion, the amazing designer has taken things up a couple notches by creating a new line of our favorite kitty flats named after some of the most iconic rock and roll bands in music history. "It wasn't about picking my favorite bands. It was about groups with strong identities. I knew that it was about taking their iconic features and applying them onto the kitty face, which we knew would work because it's fun", says Dellal. If you're into rock and roll and fashion than you'll definitely love these flats. The shoe will run you a pretty penny ($645). But if the shoe fits -- buy it, right?
THE PUNK ROCKER: SEX PISTOLS
This kitten's a rebel—all about tartan, studs, and safety-pin nose rings. "Being a punk rocker, you don’t need to have the kitty face standing out," she says. One reason she chose Johnny Rotten's band is because her sister is a huge fan. "They're all over her iPod. But I'm much more drawn to them for the nonconformist movement they started."
THE CLASSIC ROCKER: ELVIS PRESLEY
"When it comes to Elvis, everyone has a favorite song and look," says Dellal. "Mine is 'Always on My Mind' and his Vegas heyday style." Hence, these aren't the predictable blue suede shoes at all—they're velvet "for a flamboyant touch," she says.
THE GLAM ROCKER: KISS
"I love glam rock in general for the wardrobe, the makeup, the glitter," says Dellal, who put a five-point star and red lipstick on this feline to turn it into a mini Paul "Starchild" Stanley. "This represents a more-ismore era. It’s the complete opposite of what I normally go for and I love that." Therefore, she wanted to represent the over-the-top personas of the rock stars in the shoes, with metallic silver and a pronounced lip print. "This one's less about the music and more about how they inspired the world visually," she says. "They're definitely the fun party flat."
THE GRUNGE ROCKER: KURT COBAIN
"I had a poster of Cobain on my wall when I was 14 years old," says Dellal. "I am still the biggest Nirvana fan. The shoes are based on a famous picture of Cobain wearing these sunglasses. My husband bought me a copy of it for my birthday this year."
