SINGAPORE: To ring in the new year, CHARLES & KEITH’s Spring 2022 collection is a celebration of hope and new beginnings – an enticing evocation of a sun-drenched garden filled with flowers.

Fresh flowers and delicate pastels are a key theme in the footwear collection, with a cheery floral motif that captures the spirit of spring cropping up on sandals, urban clogs and Mary Janes. Shed the weight of wintery boots and slip into this season’s light and bright spring sandals. Featuring a chunky platform and playful straps that wrap around the ankles, it is the perfect accessory for sundress season.

Bags take on splashes of vibrant orange, pink, periwinkle, and green, epitomising a bolder mood of the collection. This season’s key bag, the Koa, references a distinctive retro silhouette with its timeless boxy shape, single-hued body and large clasp, topped off with a matte finish. 2000s aesthetics are having a major resurgence, with Y2K influences evident throughout the rest of the collection: dainty mini shoulder bags are contrasted against sculptural crescent shoulder bags and panelled top handles for the ultimate cool-girl look.

Drawing inspiration from the floral motif used throughout the collection, an Instagram AR filter invites users to experience Spring in Bloom with CHARLES & KEITH wherever they are, with florals blossoming and interacting with the space around them.

Rebirth. Renewal. The season of new beginnings. Eclectic influences are drawn into a collection that radiates energy and optimism, just like the first blooms of spring.
