Brands to Know: Charles & Keith
Founded in 1996 by brothers Charles and Keith Wong, this shoes and accessories retailer grew from their parent's local shoe store in Singapore to an internationally-recognized brand. The brothers decided to cut out the middleman by designing their own shoes and after expanding further into Asia, the Middle East and Africa, the company has grown to 300 stores worldwide.
Nowadays, Charles & Keith continues to make its mark with in-house designs that explore global trends with a unique spin. A few of the many styles that Charles & Keith has adeptly made its own include florals suspended in see-through acrylic and textured geometric detailing.
Despite its in-house designs, Charles & Keith remains at an accessible price point for college students and young professionals alike, from affordable earrings to thigh high boots that rarely reach the $100 mark.
Additionally, most of the pieces are wearable on a daily basis, so whether you're looking to bring basics up a notch or switch up your going-out style, Charles & Keith products are sure to help make a statement.
