JANUARY 2011 - CHARLES & KEITH Spring Summer 2011 collection injects the ideology of being bold and simple; centering around a carefree journey that will stand the test of time.

VACATION

Ready anyone? Walk the style in crisp and clean nautical lines with audacious tints of red, blue and white, captivating the voyaging spirit. Sharp identification through the use of marine motifs such as ropes and canvas acts as a perfect complement. The 2011 Spring Summer collection is about reinstating the long-lost "leisurely sensation couture" attitude as an exceptional one-off experience. Alongside, the tote, espadrille and stiletto certainly highlight the sophistication experience in the collection.
