All about the Cecilie Bahnsen x Charles & Keith collaboration: “It is never about chasing trends, it is about creating a universe of its own, out of time.”
For over half a year, street style favourite Cecilie Bahnsen has been circling around the concept of "Back to School", calling out all the nitty gritty details, putting together beauty and functionality so that this month, we see the release of the reimagined Mary Jane shoe and a distinctive mule in collaboration with Charles & Keith. The Copenhagen-based designer has always been inspired by school uniforms and in this timeless collection she perfects the Mary Jane shoe with a more feminine, couture-like touch.
When asked which is her favourite among the four in the collection, Bahnsen pointed out the patchwork shoe — Anemone Mary Jane — which is made from unique leftover fabrics from previous seasons with stitching and craftmanship that adds a unique texture and feel to the classic Mary Jane shoe. The colour palette of this shoe also follows one of her favourites — black with an int of light yellow flourishes.
The uniquely feminine and modern universe of Cecilie Bahnsen mixes emotion, romance, and inherent beauty with the openness, simplicity and, pragmatism that is her Scandinavian heritage. Cautious of quality and craftmanship, independent and sophisticated women will find female power in Bahnsen's collection. Browse through them all below.
The full Cecilie Bahnsen collection is set to launch on 25 May 2020.
