Autumn Collection 2013
Bold and elaborate, CHARLES & KEITH and CHARLES & KEITH Signature Label Autumn 2013 collection showcase an array of desirable and wearable pieces building on edgy looks and theatrical style with architectural volumes and extravagant embellishments.
Leading the line-up, show-stopper lace-up booties in a rich autumnal colour palette evoke the mood of dark sensuality with an intrinsically elegant touch. Sleek and simple clutches and totes give a discreet nod to the season’s standout pieces.
In the spirit of the outdoors, footwear pieces are inspired by the traditional and heritage of the English countryside. Work masculine influences with chelsea boots versatile enough to transcend seasons. Staple leather riding boots make for a warm, reassuring presence as temperature falls. Remaining in the stylish dimension – witness square, structured sling bags and satchels reinterpreted with suede textures and earthy tones.
Synonymous with sophisticated glamour, stilettos dressed up in gold accents and lavish suede whilst soft clutches revisit with metallic studs and toe cap embellishments stilettos take up a notably edgy look.
Embrace a new love for monochrome and a penchant for all things modern. Envisage an urban, minimalist look with sleek pointed heels in précised cut details to make a solid style statement. For a casual, understated ensemble, strut down the streets in colour-block loafers in a colour palette of black and white. Complete the look with a simple yet stylish monochrome clutch, suitable for all occasions from work to play.
Accessories spotlight a variety and shapes and sizes. A season of dramatic functionality, metallic panels and hardware embellishments play a starring role in eyewear, belts and bracelets for the perfect finishing touch. To shield eyes from the glare of the autumn sun, don a pair of oversized square frames. Meanwhile, metal bangles, steel cuffs and multi-coloured bracelets take centre stage. Define your silhouette by pairing it with a belt, adding a touch of sophistication to any outfit.
