CHARLES & KEITH SUMMER 2016 draws on a tale of one’s journey to self discovery, a delivery of self expressionism. Pushing forth the idea of self identity, a series of visual narratives portray the dialogues of one’s inner thoughts. In this issue, international style authority Kristina Bazan shares her journey in life and contributing editor, Clifford Loh of Vulture Magazine chronicles the unpredictability of inner voyage through captivating visuals.

Ornate embellishments have been abandoned in pursuit of a simplified construction. Homage is paid to tradition with an interplay of rich warm hues and wooden print on sliders, heels, wedges, platform sandals and shoulder bags; encapsulating tradition-modernity duality.

Musing on the journey of a wanderer, active ropes and lug sole details on ballerina flats, sandals, heels and trooper bags embody outdoor influences with an underlying sense of androgyny and studious demeanour. Expeditions into the unknown are expanded onto knee high gladiator sandals, studded gladiator sandals and laced-up cage heels.

The rattle of one’s thoughts is interpreted in bold attempts on merging athleticism and femininity. The idea breeds new design aesthetics, where sneakers find new ground in gem-encrusted fabrics while classic heels and sandals are refreshed with elastic cross bands.

Accessories are kept to the minimum with a strong play in geometry and semi-precious stones, in the purist pursuit of modernity.
