Designer Charlotte Olympia re-interprets her Dolly shoe for Neiman Marcus and Art Basel Miami with Boyarde Messenger painted pumps. Taking inspiration from the great painters of the Twentieth century Charlotte Olympia hired British artist, photography and body art painter Boyarde Messenger to reinterpret the works of Pablo Picasso, Howard Hodgkin, Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein and Piet Mondrian on her signature Dolly Pumps. Boyarde hand-painted 100 pairs for the project.

With each pair painstakingly hand-painted by Boyarde (you can see her entire process here), the results are high-heeled works of art.
