To commemorate its silver jubilee, Charles & Keith has unveiled a limited-edition capsule collection called the Anniversary Series that pays homage to its past, while reflecting its present and offering a glimpse into its future. From minimalist flat sandals and feminine heels to classic chunky boots, the Anniversary Series features modern and versatile shoe styles that can be integrated seamlessly into any woman’s wardrobe.
And more than just a homage to Charles & Keith’s journey, the Anniversary Series also demonstrates the brand’s commitment to step into a better future — this exceptional collection is made entirely of eco-friendly recycled materials.
“Over the last two decades, we’re proud to have grown into a brand that empowers women to experience the world of fashion, bringing them joy with collections that reflect innovation and retrospection,” said Charles & Keith executive director Emmanuelle Mace-Driskill.
“To celebrate this milestone, we have curated a collection of shoes and bags featuring some of our most iconic styles, using recycled materials that are suited for everyday wear."
The 90s-inspired footwear elements, such as square toes, chunky soles and strappy uppers, are incorporated in refreshing ways as an ode to the decade in which the brand was born. Another highlight of the collection is the Sonia line, which consists of a padded bag, a boxy bag and a padded wallet. The collection’s colour palette is anchored by timeless black and brightened by candy pink.
As seen on the modern and minimalist Arabella Recycled Nylon Slingback Sandals and Slide Sandals, used rubber has been upcycled into stylish, translucent soles that sport a speckled confetti design to accentuate the celebratory theme. Polished and elegant, the Sepphe Recycled Nylon Grommet Slingback Pumps and Mules turn heads with recycled plastic heels that feature a hypnotic marbled pattern, which makes each pair unique.
The collection campaign stars English model Lily McMenamy, the talented multi-hyphenate who was heavily involved in the art direction and styling of the campaign photoshoot.
