East to West

Immediately after wrapping up a vibrant, night market-themed party in New York City, the CHARLES & KEITH team headed straight to the West Coast of the United States for another get-together with some of our favorite style influencers. This time round, the dinner party took place in the rustic-luxe setting of one of Los Angeles’s most well-known restaurants. At this lovely rooftop spot that overlooked the iconic Abbot Kinney Boulevard, our fashionable guests dined and chatted – and even capture some stunning shots for the ‘gram – as they got to know the brand. Scroll down to find out what happened at this cozy and intimate private event – you will also get an exclusive look at the super chic outfits that feature pieces from our Spring/Summer 2019 collection.

Kristine Agabaian (@krischerie) looked poised and elegant in a metallic plissé dress. Although timeless black heels were the perfect finishing touch to her sophisticated evening look, it was the large tote with artsy sculptural handles that stole the show.

Choosing the perfect outfit for a warm-weather soirée can be tricky, but Courtney Halverson (@prettylittlefawn) nailed the dress code in a floaty printed frock and timeless front flap bag in summer-perfect tan.

From shiny sequin embellishments to a striking tie-dye print, our statement bags were popular among the stylish women at the event, including Courtnee Crews (@courtneeruthie), Rachel Nosco (@aesthetics.anonymous) and Angela Fink (@angelafink). They were also fans of our fashion-forward selection of strappy sandals, which can easily take them from the beach to dinner in the city.


A silky blazer dress, as seen on trend-setter Kathryn Zahorak (@ktzahorak), is a great throw-on-and-go option for any occasion. Stylish and sophisticated, it is best accompanied by a sparkling sequin bag and heeled sandals in sleek white.

Stella Simona (@stellasimona) showed that black accessories can shine, even at night. The jewelry designer was complemented her outfit with metal-tipped stilettos and a mock croc round bag that exude a sense of luxury and modernity.

Jordan Rebello (@bigsecret) brought a backpack to a dinner party. Carrying the eye-catching silver piece by its top handle for an evening-friendly look, she flaunted the versatility of the humble and hardworking backpack with panache.

You can never go wrong with a classic blazer-over-trousers look like Stephanie Arant’s (@shhtephs). Update this classic ensemble with this season’s must-have woven bag or snake print kitten heel mules that are all the rage right now.
