What Madame Clicquot and Charlotte Olympia have in common is that even though the two successful business women were born centuries apart, they are an inspiration and entrepreneurial role models, especially for young women. La Grande Dame Cuvee was launched in 1972 on the celebration of the 200th birthday of its founder. Charlotte Olympia, the British luxury shoe, and accessories brand were founded by a woman in her mid-twenties of the same name in 2008. Recently, the two brands have come together for a collaboration that is a celebration of inspirational women.
The Veuve Clicquot La Grande by Charlotte Olympia is a special edition of La Grande Dame cuvée that will be a must-have for fans of Charlotte Olympia and leopard print. The special edition bottle of La Grande Dame 2006 comes encased in a gift box designed by Charlotte Olympia, featuring bespoke leopard print combined with the Veuve Clicquot colour palette. It also takes design cues from Charlotte Olympia’s best selling Vanina clutch. That, combined with the seductive and sleek contours, and the gold clasp lettering, which wonderfully complements the box’s luxe interior. The champagne itself is a light gold colour, with toasted notes and fresh fruits aroma. Ideal for pairing with seafood or dry aged cheeses.
Coinciding with its launch, Charlotte Olympia is also releasing a capsule collection of shoes, a clutch bag, and a champagne bar, all designed with nods to the elegance of Veuve Clicquot’s heritage. This collaboration has a crucial value for both brands and the latest chapter in the celebration of inspirational women.
