Around The World
First Stop: Singapore
To capture the essence and atmosphere of summer within our physical store, we recreated the stunning allure of a wheat field at the window display, evoking the natural beauty associated with the season. Against this picturesque backdrop, the focal point is the magnificent, giant Ida sculptural tote bag, which effortlessly stands out, offering a truly immersive and enchanting visual experience that transports you to the serene ambiance of a golden meadow.
This captivating installation will be displayed at CHARLES & KEITH’s Ngee Ann City mall outlet for an entire month. It will run from June 15th to July 20th.
The Giant Ida Tote Bag
With an impressive width of 158cm and a height of 110cm, the giant Ida tote bag commands attention and leaves a lasting impression. Despite its imposing size, four models bravely took on the challenge of showcasing its magnificence.
Adorned in the stylish and elevated espadrille wedges from our Summer 2023 collection, Aslesha Williams effortlessly lifted the colossal Ida tote bag, gracefully placing it on her shoulder.
Similarly, Dina Vasileva, decked out in our espadrille thong sandals, effortlessly lifted the giant Ida. Despite the bag's striking appearance, Dina created a visually captivating contrast by styling herself in an elegant all-black ensemble.
Anna, choosing to complement the neutral tones of the imposing Ida tote bag, opted for a brown ensemble. By incorporating three of her into the picture, we further emphasise the grandeur and magnificence of the giant Ida tote bag.
