CHARLES & KEITH collaborates with Singaporean fashion illustrator Grace Ciao to create a series of unique artworks on the brand’s highly coveted Gabine Leather Saddle Bag, making each piece a unique collector’s item.
Introduced in Winter 2021, the iconic Gabine style is enhanced with elevated materials, hallmarks of the CHARLES & KEITH COLLECTION. Crafted from supple natural leather, each Gabine is hand-painted by Grace with her signature delicate florals — her stylish illustrations inject an additional element of elegance to the sophisticated bag. Drawing on her love for flora and fauna, each of Grace’s hand-painted flower is unique, just like how no two flowers in nature are the same.
“The Gabine bag evokes style and elegance, and I wanted to ensure that my art complements it well. The bold strokes that I use on the bags speak of intent and confidence — something I feel every woman should have!” – Gracie Ciao
Limited to only 20 pieces in each colour worldwide and retailing exclusively online, the Hand-Painted Floral Gabine Leather Saddle Bag will become available for purchase from 8-10 December 2021. The black version will debut on the 8 December, while the white and brown ones will go live on the subsequent days.
