Charlotte Olympia Dellal is living on the wild side. For her spring ’16 offering, the Charlotte Olympia designer said animal prints will rule the collection. But Dellal, who recently opened stores in London; Las Vegas; and Costa Mesa, Calif., admits that she enjoys going barefoot from time to time as well. Here, Dellal chats with Spy about her animal-print moment and her upcoming travels.

What styles are you most excited about for spring ’16?

“I’m exploring my love of leopard print!”

What are your favorite summer shoes?

“I love wearing flats when I’m by the sea. My knotted Marina espadrille sandals, from my Encore collection of classics, are always in my suitcase in several colors and prints. They’re feminine and easy to dress up or down.”
