When one of our favourite homegrown brands launches a new capsule that aligns with our sustainable values, there is no reason not to share it. Charles & Keith just launched its 2022 Purpose capsule with a colour palette that centres around go-with-everything neutrals, trendy lime and gasp, a pop of lilac! The collection is said to “re-visit the outdoors with a sense of femininity” (perfect for a nature lover like me) with platformed boots and ribboned mules accented with an organic quilt pattern and finished with recycled plastic outsoles. And no, the Purpose capsule doesn’t end with shoes; they include hats, headbands and bags with a dramatic flair, featuring oversized handles and flower motifs inspired by nature.
Delve into each of the items from the new launch, and you will discover that the delicately quilted body of the bag and shoes are consciously crafted from recycled polyester. In addition, the shoes are filled with eco-friendly Kapok for a down-like finish – a natural fibre found in the dried fruit of the Kapok tree native to the tropical rainforest. Moreover, because the yarn used is biodegradable and a highly sustainable material, it helps save a tremendous amount of water during production. Do look out for Charles & Keith's eco-friendly products with the “Made With Sustainable Materials” tag that are assured to reduce the environmental impact.
Be it street chic with a feminine twist or a polished, colour-coordinated look, challenge yourself and push your sartorial boundaries by experimenting with your style and creating a look uniquely you. Most Purpose Collection comes in White, Black, Nude and Lilac. Many e-edition products come in colourways available exclusively online. So take your pick, go matchy-matchy or not; it's your call! Free delivery on orders above S$60 and free returns within 30 days of receiving your order.
