Luxury footwear and accessories brand CHARLES & KEITH and the designers behind SHUSHU / TONG have unveiled their first collaborative capsule collection this spring season. And everything’s coming up roses.

The capsule features two bags and two shoe designs, centred around the motif of the rose. Beautiful and fragile, dangerous and charming, the theme evokes love and desire and we are certainly smitten with the collection’s retro romantic charm. 

“The rose has become a significant symbol in literature and art,” explains SHUSHU/TONG, “Traditionally, roses only bloomed once a year, which means it was destined to live for a short period of time. A fragile, withering rose exudes fleeting beauty. Sharp thorns line its soft, delicate branches; this danger is a metaphor for the price we sometimes need to pay for love.”

With the collection’s red and black colour palette, the rose motif reflects SHUSHU / TONG’s unabashed femininity merged with the understated elegance of CHARLES & KEITH’s designs. Mary Janes with a twist and vintage-inspired handbags in patent leather and satin fabrics, the campaign syncs the accessories brand’s signature shapes with the duo’s whimsical charm. 

Directed by fashion photographer Zeng Wu Zhang and styled by Liu Xiao, the creative chemistry between the two brands is clear to see. The collection is available to purchase in selected CHARLES & KEITH boutiques and on
