The blending of our brands’ sensibilities was very natural. Innovation and experimentation form the backbone of our design ethos, and we have a strong collaborative spirit in our roots, as active players in the global creative circuit. With both’s expertise and one-of-a-kind rubber technique, we tapped on each other’s strengths to push the boundaries on design and translate this material into a contemporary collection we hope our wearers will love.
– said Fredie Stevens, Design Director of CHARLES & KEITH.

Known for its unique use of rubber in its designs, both has reimagined Charles & Keith’s iconic Chelsea boot and chunky loafer silhouettes. They added the Grunge-inspired platforms to the well known footwear styles, balancing on and off-duty wear. These sculptural silhouettes aren’t dissimilar to styles that would have been spotted on youths frequenting Camden and Harajuku in the noughties. – says the press release.

Bags also take the inspiration from the 90s, with a futuristic twist: Baguette shoulder bags feature chunky straps, while structured bucket bags have a magnetic closure that folds over to create a sleek elliptical form. The bags also feature removable charms and chains, as well as a statement buckle, also seen on the loafers.

We are always looking to capture the culture, mood and people of a certain period, and this collection is an ode to the transgressive spirit of punk, reflected in the youthful zeal of the new generation, who have challenged and redefined the boundaries of so many norms.
