The bag ‘Wristlet’ – designed, as the name suggests, to be worn on the wrist – is from the firm Charles & Keith, the Zara of Singapore.
Used to the economic waste that fashion attendees make when it comes to choosing their ‘street style’ look, sighting a bag from an affordable firm outside the parades becomes newsworthy. The last day of London Fashion Week has made it clear that the it bag of the next fall-winter 2018/19 can be anywhere, including a well-known fashion firm called Charles & Keith that could be considered as the Zara of Singapore. Its Wristlet design – created, as the name suggests, to be worn hanging from the wrist – not only has starred in a pair of street looks that are worth reviewing, but also has shown that the bags whose silhouette implies a manual of use concrete are gaining ground among the wardrobes of fashion editors.
Among the attendees who have opted for this minimalist piece of short handle, available in various colors on the website of the firm-in chalk, mustard, cognac and black with crocodile effect, are Tamu McPherson (below) and Linda Tol (above) , fashionable prescriber based in Amsterdam and well-known face of the ‘street style’ who, in addition, is one of the ambassadors of this brand born in 1996 together with another popular insider, Alysa Coscarelli. But the most notable, in addition to its particular design and its surprising presence on the wrist of a few ‘early adopters’, is its affordable price: 69 euros.
Just a few days ago, Vogue UK echoed this affordable footwear brand due to its presence both on and off the London catwalk: its the footwear of the recent parade of Molly Goddard and two stars of the ‘front row’, Susie Bubble and Camille Charrière, have opted to wear shoes of the brand in question. But if you thought that Charles & Keith’s fame is recent history, take note: coincidences of life, Masie Williams took one of her bags to the 2016 Emmy Awards gala. If we add her presence in the ‘street style’ to that necessary dose of red carpet, and we add a bit of notoriety in the spring backstages of 2019, we have more than enough reasons to keep track of this brand and include it in our most immediate wishlist.
