Charles & Keith goes for mischief and minimalism
(The Philippine Star) - February 3, 2016 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines – Charles & Keith takes on a bolder approach as slightly mischievous elements are introduced while retaining a minimalistic identity. The idea of contemporary nostalgia is adapted to revive the mood of unforgotten eras that have strongly influenced fashion today.

Beginning with a trip down memory lane and ending with an unexpected juxtaposition between edginess and feminine sweetness, nostalgic and historic influences are merged with subculture street aesthetics while traditional oriental elements are very subtly instilled through a reinterpretation with modern styles.

Reworked details are seen on wedge sandals, heels, and mini backpacks featuring small ruffle details, while martial elements and origami folds explore the minimal aesthetics of Asian beauty reflected on oversized knot sliders, cross strap weave sandals, and tie-knot details on clutch bags.

Seventies daywear is updated with modern relevance, using the allure of vintage accent detailing on mule loafers, buckle detail clogs, oversized drawstring bags and keyhole lock wallets in tones of camel, sandstorm, and whisper pink.

Lastly, in a bid to explore the grace, sophistication and feminine fluidity of acrobatics and ballet, the dynamic elements are infused on flare-heel pumps, angular cut-out wedges, cross-strap ankle stilettos in contrasting tones of nude and pink, navy and burgundy while a touch of ultra feminine element is added to the collection in pearlized mary janes, angular cutout wedges and high-shaft counter pumps paired with large classic tote bags and metal detail wristlets in tones of beige, cream, and champagne.

These off-the-runway pieces are now available at the following Charles & Keith stores: Abreeza Mall, Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio Global City, Cybermall Eastwood,  Glorietta 3, Greenbelt 5, Harbor Point, Lucky Chinatown Mall, Newport City, Robinsons Place Manila, Rockwell, Shangri-La Plaza, SM Aura, SM City Cebu, SM City North Edsa, SM Iloilo, SM Lanang, SM Mall of Asia, SM Manila, SM Megamall, SM Pampanga, SM San Lazaro, SM Southmall, The Shops Greenhills, TriNoma, and, soon to open, SM Seaside.
