charles & keith update

we were in glorietta today, and after a sushi lunch at zen, and on our way to bufini to check out the latest issues, we saw the bright lights coming from charles & keith—just opened today! and looky who we spotted right outside the store: that’s the back of big boss ben chan. looks like he was entertaining the principals from singapore. but where were charles and keith? yes, they are actual people, two brothers in their 30s who started this company 10 years ago. maybe they’ll be here for the formal store opening next month. check out the goodies (most of the shoes are priced under 2,000 bucks!):
cute little flip-flops (very kate spade!)
bejeweled fabric d'orsay pumps (very prada!)
ultra-feminine wedge sandals (very ferragamo!)
and what's this? fendi spy knockoffs! (which is different from fakes or counterfeit goods—those pass themselves off as the real thing. knockoffs are "inspired" by designer looks.)
