CHARLES & KEITH WINTER 2015 expresses the idea of “less is more” in a collection of functional essentials projected in cool, muted colours. The expression of beauty is challenged by the uprising of a quiet mind in an oasis of silence and seclusion. Functionality becomes the essence but the idea of perfection and beauty remains unforgotten.

Drawing inspiration from life resembling monastic beauty, details are hugely restrained while palettes are clean & muted as seen on laceless oxfords, high-shaft block heels, booties lined minimally in shearling and sneaker boots in tones of black, folkstone grey, chalk and brown. The quest for everlasting youth and beauty pleads for modernistic inspirations resulting in updated ballerinas, blade heel pumps, and strappy stilettos bearing a mix of metallic, transparent detailing, and tassel fringes.

Make a statement with the right balance of volume and style by complementing the elemental ensemble with oversized semi-structured totes, drawstring backpack, tassel-fringed bucket bags, or mini top-handle city bags in primal colours of camel, cool grey, and black and faux ponyhair textures.

For a boldness that transcends into the night, expressive silhouettes can be seen on towering lace-work stiletto designs or thigh-high stiletto booties and Winter exotics of snake and tiger prints to complement the polished woodlands climate in slingback stilettos and multi-strap heels.

Accessorize with statement collar or matinee necklaces and hexagonal bangles featuring semi-precious stone details to complete the new look.
