This signature bag by CHARLES & KEITH is now part of a full-fledged Gabine capsule range, which features a series of shoes, and bags in playful, mini silhouettes. From fashion influencers Aimee Song and Chriselle Lim to Who What Wear editor-in-chief Kat Collings and YouTube star Joan Kim, trendsetters from all over the world are fans of the Gabine family. Read on to find out how they have incorporated the latest Gabine designs into their outfits.

Willabelle Ong

Singapore-based digital creator and artist Willabelle Ong’s stylish monochromatic outfit mixes modern femininity with a touch of edgy ruggedness. Pairing a scallop-trimmed, puff-sleeved white blouse with a shiny voluminous skirt, she chooses the Gabine buckled leather ankle boots for her footwear, and accessorises with not one but two Gabine quilted saddle bags in striking steel blue to create a visually arresting ensemble.

Kristy Wu

A black pantsuit is a failproof style staple. Fashion, beauty and wellness digital creator Kristy Wu updates hers with a white cropped top and sleek leather pants. The relaxed yet polished Gabine buckled leather loafer mules perfectly complement Kristy’s sophisticated smart-causal look, while the luxurious Gabine leather saddle bag in timeless black is an elegant companion that will see her from day to night.

Chau Bui

Model and actress Chau Bui keeps it simple — but very interesting — in an all-black ensemble. A long puffy vest and soft pants creates the perfect backdrop for her shoes and bags to shine. The gold buckles on the Gabine leather loafer mules transform the relaxed shoe style into a luxurious design. Holding the Gabine quilted saddle bag as a clutch in her hand, she uses its micro version as a quirky belt bag.

Melody Tan

Style maven and tastemaker Melody Tan heads outdoors to get in touch with nature in an outfit that is both utilitarian and elegant. Keeping warm in a flattering quilted puffer coat, she slings the Gabine saddle bag in dark green across her body to keep her hands free (to pat a horse), demonstrating that whether one is in the city or in the wild, this versatile bag will be able to keep up with you.

Melanie Liu

A white dress can be an intimidating fashion choice, but fashion influencer and entrepreneur Melanie Liu pulls it off with flair. By pairing her pristine puff-sleeved white dress with sleek black designs — the Gabine leather saddle bag and Gabine buckled leather ankle boots — from the elegant and sophisticated Gabine family, she has created a stunning outfit that is romantic yet modern. It will definitely turn heads wherever she goes.


To create a visual balance, South Korean model and dancer NO:ZE reaches for black accessories when she is in the mood to wear bright colours. To complement her green off-shoulder top and introduce a textural element to her look, she picked the Gabine bag in a quilted finish — together with its matching micro version — as well as statement-making knee-high boots to complete her youthful and eclectic outfit.

Petra Mack

Known for her minimalist and boyish style, fashion influencer and creative Petra Mack has a penchant for over-sized blazers — and she carries them off with panache. Wearing a grey blazer as a baggy coat, she accessorises her simple but very chic outfit with the laid-back but luxurious Gabine buckled leather loafer mules, which she pairs with the matching Gabine leather saddle bag.

Chriselle Lim And Aimee Song

Influential A-listers in the fashion scene, Chriselle Lim and Aimee Song ace fall dressing with seasonal classics in soothing earth tones. To keep their looks stylish but understated, each accessorised her autumnal outfit with pieces from the Gabine family. Chriselle opted for the Gabine saddle bag in timeless black and paired it with the polished Gabine buckled leather mule pumps. Aimee looks cool and youthful by nailing the double-bag trend — with the mini and micro Gabine quilted saddle bags in steel blue — and adding an edgy touch to her ensemble with the Gabine buckled leather ankle boots.

Esther Yu

Chinese actress Esther Yu looks happy in blue in a sweet printed summer dress, which she complements with the mini Gabine quilted bag in steel blue — the matching micro version of the bag is used as an adorable charm. The resulting look is fun and refreshing, perfect for a day out with friends.

Sai De Silva With Her Daughter London

Fashion influencer and stylish mom Sai de Silva and her daughter London twin in casual chic outfits that look effortless but sophisticated. Dressed in long coats and ankle boots, both of them carry the Gabine saddle bag in a striking two-tone design. Against the neutral palette of their clothes, the bags’ bright brick finish stands out and make an eye-catching statement.

Miz Freckle

Taiwanese style maven Miz Freckle elevated her modern double-denim ensemble with the Gabine quilted saddle bag in elegant steel blue — the micro iteration of the same bag serves as a charming and practical embellishment. The soft blue of the Gabine bags creates a striking contrast with the deep blue of her outfit, making it a masterful tonal look, which is complemented by the casual but polished Gabine buckled leather loafer mules in chalk.

Lydia Tomlinson

YouTuber Lydia Tomlinson looks modern and elegant in an all-white ensemble that consists of a turtleneck top, long skirt and the Gabine saddle bag in chalk. She opted for the Gabine buckled knee-high boots to create a chic contrast. Perfect for both work and off-duty days, this is a stylish look that you will want to wear on repeat.

Kat Collings

As the editor-in-chief of popular fashion publication Who What Wear, Kat Collings needs stylish outfits that will not get in the way of her busy lifestyle. She pairs a long button-down coat and smart black pants with the Gabine saddle bag in warm brown and the Gabine buckled leather mule pumps in chic chalk to create a work look that is modern, comfortable and sophisticated.

Joan Kim

YouTube star Joan Kim is always on the go as she creates content for her many subscribers. Throwing on a blazer over trendy bicycle shorts, she polishes up her smart-casual look with the Gabine saddle bag in chalk. To stay comfortable on her feet all day, she opted for the Gabine buckled leather ankle boots in timeless black — this classic-with-a-twist design is made to be a fashion staple that will never go out of style.

Jadyn Xavier

TikTok star Jadyn Xavier paired her mini denim dress with the mini Gabine two-tone saddle bag in an eye-catching brick finish — she also had fun with the mini bag trend by using the micro version of the same bag as a cute charm. To complete her outfit, she put on the Gabine buckled leather ankle boots in chalk, which gave her look an edgy-chic vibe.
