SINGAPORE, 13 July 2022 – A reflection on freedom and belonging, CHARLES & KEITH inspires a sense of optimism with its Fall 2022 Collection. An inclusive mix of classic and fashion forward pieces with a dash of pop culture references, this season aims to inspire individuals to forge self-expression through their individuality and style. Hints of cyberpunk sci-fi infused with retro dot-com influences make up this fearless fall collection, presented with more vibrancy in eye-catching brights and a panoply of glossy patent.
Capturing the sleek aesthetics of techno-utopianism, the Lula patent series makes its debut with all manners of pumps, loafers and boots. Mary Janes are not just for kids anymore; the girlish style is given a slick, grown-up update. A staple reinvented with a twist in proportions: Its curved forms and sweet ankle straps are a play on the quintessential schoolgirl-chic look. Well-loved penny loafers are rehashed with a chunky platform and high shine finish, while boots are given towering silhouettes and blocked heels. Delivered in a slew of deeper tones that mimic the season with a glossy patent finish, they are a definite must-have.
Leave the long sunny days and keep warm with other fall appropriate styles that include the Frida leather knee high boots that come with a delicate kitten heel for equal parts of chic and comfort. What’s fall without some cosy textures? The Frida series also comes in a mustard-hued shearing, seen across kitten heel mules, pumps and boots; a perfect transitional piece that provides a balance of comfort and versatility. A mix of sweet and sporty, the Roony patent Mary Janes are given extreme chunky outsoles and an augmented back for a streak of utilitarianism. Available in striking colours like neon green, the nostalgic style is anything but innocent.
Patent Lula bags revisit the late ‘90s and ‘00s obsession with Matrix-inspired, futuristic fashion, but are given a softer blow-up bubble look. Proving that bold is better, the glossy bags come in unique cube and oversized oval silhouettes secured with a hefty buckle closure, the high-contrast style is perfect for the high-fashion girl. The iconic Gabine family is extended this season with noteworthy everyday silhouettes like the mini top-handle bucket, materialised in tweed which highlights the retro aesthetics. New this season, the Ridley chain handle bag, with its boxy shape and detachable two-tone chain, comes in seasonal tones like mustard and dark moss that are the ideal accompaniment to any fall outfit.
The CHARLES & KEITH Fall 2022 collection will be available in stores and on CHARLESKEITH.COM from August 2022.
