Winter Collection 2012
CHARLES & KEITH goes around the world in globetrotter style this Winter 2012. Travel to the far west of American Old West; experience the Midas touch in Phrygian city Midaeum; head to the urban land of modern archetypal and devote yourself to spiritual work in a pious way of life.
Geography, history, folklore and cultural expression of life in the Far West comprise the richness of colours: red, camel, nude, tangerine, mustard, cognac, raw handcraft details and graphical motifs of the Red Indian cowboy. Think fringing, suede, leather pony hair – the tough luxe necessitate for withstanding the rough outdoor elements. Saddle up and make a masculine impact with these subtle western touches in booties, oversized totes and sling bags for the perfect rough and tumble look.
Indulge in a luxe dose of gold statement by the Golden Touch with plush gem stone accents of navy, purple and emerald for an enviable allure. Bask in a freeform mix of bullions and elements for a heavy bout of mash-up glamour and live up to bold expectations with glitter, leopard, satin, velvet and metallic in wedges, ballet flats and clutches for the sophisticated modern women.
A rework of contemporary classics, walk the heritage hounds tooth, tweed, felt and tartan print in a modern twist with pops of red and cobalt blue, mixed with a splash of check patterns for an effortless cool impression of The Highlander in derby brogues, pumps, boots and large structured totes.
Illustrating modesty of puritans for its simple lines, minimal details and beauty of discretion in a quiet and somber colour palette of black, grey, light gold and silver is Monastic. Accentuate this look with sturdy boots and bags in textured materials, adding dimensional appeal to structured shapes. Fashion a subtle and understated energy with an austere and reserved approach to classic touches and finishes.
