SHUSHU/TONG X CHARLES & KEITH
To kick off the spring season, we unveil our first-ever collaborative capsule collection with the designers of Shanghai-based fashion label SHUSHU/TONG: Liushu Lei and Yutong Jiang. Watch the interview video to learn about the inspiration behind this limited-edition collection.
The SHUSHU/TONG x CHARLES & KEITH capsule collection features two pairs of bags and shoes centred around the key motif of the rose, exploring its ephemeral beauty, fragility and charm. The unique imagery of the rose embodies the SHUSHU/TONG brand DNA — where the modern woman and unabashedly feminine details are juxtaposed — merged with the sensibilities and understated elegance that form the bedrock of CHARLES & KEITH’s design ethos.
Mary Janes in patent leather — a style beloved by CHARLES & KEITH fans — have been given a unique SHUSHU/TONG twist. The feminine shape of the shoe is offset with an edgy, chunky heel. A delicate rose embellishment adorns one side of each colourway, giving the shoes a romantic charm while retaining its retro style.
Handbags in the collection take on an elegant rectangular shape, with a wide, adjustable ribbon-like strap that allows it to be carried underarm or as a top handle. The black version is crafted from sleek satin and adorned with a patent rose in the same shade, while its crimson counterpart features a delicate, vintage-inspired rose motif on its glossy satin body. The bag’s interior is crafted from supple leather and finished with a hidden magnetic closure.
China-based actress and model Eleanor Lee stands out in black and white. Her preppy chic ensemble — complete with the Chloris rose-embellished bag and Mary Jane pumps — is brilliantly coordinated.
