SINGAPORE, 24 August 2023 – CHARLES & KEITH has teamed up with visual artist Henn Kim, renowned for her surrealist black and white drawings. Henn Kim, who shot to social media fame for channelling her emotional experiences into poignant works of art showcases a different side to her psyche with this collaboration – reimagining her signature heart motif with a spirit of light heartedness.

Fondly titled “Heart Is Every Wear”, the all-black 4-piece capsule is inspired by Henn Kim’s desire for the products to be worn anywhere and everywhere, and for each wearer to feel encouraged in being forthcoming with their emotions. Its cheeky moniker invites individuals to embrace authenticity and express their innermost sentiments by confidently wearing their hearts on their sleeves.

The Illustrated Heart Charm Ankle Boots and Illustrated Heart Charm Ruched Hobo Bagfeature metallic embellishments reflecting Henn Kim’s highly recognisable anatomical heart illustration, while a matching faux leather scrunchie and a plush cosmic-themed blanket round up the capsule. The latter is adorned with a galaxy of planets – another trademark iconography of the artist’s – encircling a monumental heart, symbolising the vastness of the universe as deep as one’s emotions.

“My art has always served as a medium for expressing complex emotions that I could not convey in words. For this collaboration, the reimagined heart illustration goes beyond depicting despondency, and instead offers a new outlook by imbuing the heart symbol with self-assurance and the courage to express oneself freely,” said Henn Kim.

Fredie Stevens, Design Director of CHARLES & KEITH said, “CHARLES & KEITH has always enjoyed collaborating with emerging creative talent across fields of art and design. As personal admirers of her work, it was particularly exciting for the team to work with Henn Kim in bringing a fresh take on one of her signature illustrations to life through this capsule – especially given the important message at its core on inspiring self-expression, which resonates with our own brand values.”

The CHARLES & KEITH x Henn Kim collection drops 5 September 2023 in selected CHARLES & KEITH boutiques and on www.charleskeith.com. With every purchase from the capsule, customers will also receive a set of stickers featuring Henn Kim’s exclusive illustrations for the brand.
