Charlotte Olympia Makes Comic Books Cool With Archie Accessories
July 29, 2013
Back in February, we told you about the MAC Archie’s Girls collection inspired by everyones favorite cartoon gals. It looks like whimsical shoe designer Charlotte Olympia is also a fan of the comic book series. It was just announced that Olympia has an accessories line in the works inspired by Archie Andrews and his never-ending love triangle with Betty and Veronica. This news comes on the heels of (sorry, had to) Olympia’s Pop Art collection at Art Basel and her all-American 1950’s inspired Resort 2014 collection.
According to an article released today on WWD, this is the most high-end merchandise to feature Archie and his friends. Ever. Olympia admits to still reading the comic book series as an adult, so it’s a no-brainer that she would design a collection inspired by Archie and friends. The accessories will include suede pumps with comic bubble quotes (red for Betty, blue for Veronica) ($1,095), a comic print wedge ($1,295) and a clutch that looks like a folded comic book ($1,595). The exclusive limited edition Archie collection hits stores this November. So you still have 4 more months to make the age old decision: are you a Betty of a Veronica?
