It’s been a labour of love for 3 months, I am an artist and I was commissioned by Charlotte Olympia and Neiman Marcus, to hand paint 100 pairs of limited edition signature Dolly shoes for Art Basel week in Miami. The launch is December 4th in the Bal Harbour Miami branch of Neiman Marcus; for details go to Charlotte Olympia. It seems people cant’ keep a secret for long, and there are a few sneaky peaks of the great artist inspired Dolly’s, in December Elle US magazine, and the US online site, She Finds. I am very proud to have painted these shoes for the Charlotte Olympia / Neiman Marcus collaboration and im sure there will be more to see after the launch!
Elle US december 2012, here is the first look at the Roy Lichtenstein inspired Dolly, i painted one side orange, and the other shoe blue. The speech bubble says ‘just one more pair’… perfect!

i have done previous posts about hand painted Dollys that i made for Charlotte Olympia last year for Vogue Fashion Night Out, in London September 2011, which is where the project initially grew and blossomed into what it is now. Which is your favourite?!
