Founded by two brothers who also lend their name to the brand, Charles & Keith is an under-the-radar success story all the way from Singapore. Initially focusing on footwear, Charles & Kieth’s focus has broadened in recent years to include accessories with recent output encompassing some pretty and functional handbags.
This summer’s capsule collection came across our desks this week and ever since we’ve been paying the campaign’s monochromatic images a lot of our wandering attention. Also we’re now introducing ‘mandal’ to your never-ending shoe lexicon. The muse/sandal hybrids look perfect for inter-seasonal hijinks as we await all these promised heat waves. Chunky heels and graphic flats with a dash of cool stilettos comprise the rest of the collection with cool dark colour duos that won’t scare the wildlife. For the bag ladies we’re keeping an eye on the graceful denim materials.
