I have developed a fondness for Charlotte Olympia lately. Why? Well, that is a very good question. But it’s also a difficult one to answer. To be honest, I’m not really sure what the allure is. For some reason, I just feel drawn to these unusual pieces. Perhaps it’s simply because I like to see something new. Let’s face it, Charlotte Olympia’s designs are not something you see every day. Plus I’m excited because this latest season was inspired by the city of love — Paris! However, these pieces aren’t inspired by what I would call your typical Paris icons. Take a look at the Charlotte Olympia Perfume Perspex Clutch and you will see what I mean.
Eiffel Tower? What Eiffel Tower? You won’t be seeing one of those here! How about a Chanel-esque bottle of perfume instead? This curious little clutch resembles perhaps the most well-known fragrance bottle in the world. It really is hard to resist! The clutch is two pieces of transparent perspex hinged together. Perched atop this clutch is a frosted “lid” that conceals the magnetic closure and completes the perfume bottle look. The label on the front reads “Charlotte Olympia”, so you know this is a clutch and not an actual (oversized) perfume bottle. Overall, I think is clutch is cute. I just worry about its practicality. This is definitely meant to accompany a little black dress and a classic strand of pearls.
