CHARLES & KEITH Summer 2017 explores the stage of illumination during one’s creative processes. It is a time where the work gets frustrating, and impulsion slips in before the ‘eureka’ moment. In the second series of the campaign shot by Glen Luchford and choreographed by Stephen Galloway, the story goes back in time, where Ally Ertel and Peyton Knight first met as strangers. It explores the process where two find comfort in the compromised and clumsy.

The collection channels a wide array of unique characters ranging from the soft demure to the elegant sophisticated dame. The diversity emulates the creators of today with the use of detail aesthetics and statement makers.

The juxposition of elements coalesce to form our sense. Classic silhouettes are captivated by key embellishments inspired by a season of colours, surrounded by pom poms, tassels and beads embroidery.

Sparked by the appreciation of the understated, various shades of soft pink and floral embroidery depict the ephemeral mundane mood of creation. Costume jewellery is made up of chokers, sleek cuffs, geometric details, gems and semi-precious stones.
