Since 2012, as part of the brand’s philanthropic efforts, CHARLES & KEITH has been partnering with Singapore Committee for UN Women to champion gender equality, as well as to demonstrate its support for women-related causes around the world. Joining CHARLES & KEITH in this effort is Singaporean female icon Sandra Riley Tang, who breaks convention to excel in a traditionally male-dominated sport, reshaping the way that women are being perceived today.

For International Women’s Day 2018, in line with the theme ‘Time Is Now’, the fashion brand has launched an exclusive collection that features a light grey quilted crossbody bag and light grey quilted wallet to support the peaceful but urgent press for female empowerment. 20% of the proceeds from the sale of these items will also go to Singapore Committee for UN Women to fund the organisation’s programmes and initiatives.
