EXCLUSIVE: Charlotte Olympia’s Workin’ 9 Till 5


While she’s best known for her sky-high platforms, trompe l’oeil accessories, and whimsical color combinations, Charlotte Dellal dialed things back with her latest offering for Charlotte Olympia. The new shoes are even appropriate for the office (and we don’t just mean a fashion office), which explains the new range’s title, 9 Till 5. Leather and suede single-sole silhouettes have lower heel heights, ranging from 55 mm to 90 mm, and a mostly neutral palette of black, burgundy, and taupe (with a few pops of color for good measure). “As a working mother of three, I understand the importance of ease whilst at work, and the playful hints of PVC, fuchsia, and leopard allow you to do this with style,” Dellal told

Each pair of shoes comes with matching colored stockings and a briefcase-inspired shoebox to stow under your desk. But we had to ask: Will Dellal actually wear any of these styles? “Personally, I wear super high-heeled platforms, flats, and everything in between. You can really determine your day by the shoes you choose to wear,” she said. “If I’m feeling particularly glamorous, I’ll reach for my most flamboyant platforms, but if it’s a day of work meetings, I’ll be wearing my leopard block heels. And for a day out with my three boys, my Kitty flats are perfect to run around in.”

Priced between $635 to $665, the Charlotte Olympia 9 Till 5 collection is available now at and launches tomorrow at
