Charlotte Olympia & Krystof Strozyna

There was a girl sitting across from me at Krystof Strozyna. She looked familiar, and not just because I was obsessed with her outfit yesterday, but because she looked like a retro version of Alice Dellal. Cue the killer shoes with red-trimmed soles and a sugar rush from the Godiva chocolates at Chris Kane and I finally realized it must be the model's sister and shoe designer, Charlotte Olympia. Her major platforms complimented newcomer Krystof's geometric collection. He played with thick thread and loose knits over jersey with lots and lots and lots of cut outs before diving into a few neon pieces. His ideas were excellent - the execution, less so. But for a young designer, whom we can only assume lacks endless funds, it was a great success.
