See Charlotte Olympia's Hand-Painted Pop Art Collection Before It Debuts At Art Basel

Evidently, shoe goddess Charlotte Olympia has a passion for modern art, too. To celebrate international art show Art Basel Miami, Olympia partnered with contemporary artist Boyarde to recreate famous works of art from some of the world’s most revered modernists including Mondrian, Pollock, Picasso and more, on pairs of her signature Dolly platform heels.

Modern art has long-been a source of inspiration for fashion designers, including Yves Saint Laurent, whose iconic grid-pattern shift dress was inspired by Mondrian’s series of grid paintings. Olympia, however, is the first designer to translate the art to the shoe, and the result is impressive. Take a look at the slideshow to see the hand-painted heels, because sadly, looking is all you’ll be able to do. These limited-edition heels will only be sold at the Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbour, FL during the Art Basel.
