BOTH X CHARLES & KEITH
CHARLES & KEITH and Paris-based independent footwear brand both have teamed up to create an exclusive collection. Centred around 90s punk vibes and urban-chic streetwear aesthetics, this stylish and edgy collection is a modern take on the art of imperfection.SHOP THE COLLECTION
Available in black, white and a special print - created by layering gold marble foil over a lemon-yellow background - this collaborative collection features iconic grunge elements, such as androgynous shoe styles and distinctive metallic details, that give a nod to the transgressive 90s social movement while celebrating the youthful zeal of the current generation.
With respect for the past and hope for the future, the both x CHARLES & KEITH collection seeks to look back and move forward at the same time. Reflecting the innovative and experimental design ethos that the two brands share, the bags and shoes in this exclusive range exude a unique retro-futuristic mood. Traditional Chelsea boots and loafers are updated with both's signature curved rubber soles, which have a sculptural form that will bring elegance to streetwear. A baguette shoulder bag is given chunky straps for a maximalist effect, while a structured bucket bag features a magnetic closure that folds over to create a sleek elliptical form.
Inspired by the ancient Japanese art form of Kintsugi - a traditional method of mending broken things with gold - the seams on the footwear in this creative collection are purposefully uneven, and highlighted in gold and silver. This serves as a visual reminder for their wearer to embrace flaws and imperfections, while adding a subtle yet eye-catching shine to the designs.SHOP THE COLLECTION
