The interiors of the brand’s latest store are minimalist and are characterized by gradual curves and fluid lines. The company has picked an understated colour scheme, showcasing modern and refined ambiance, which is the company’s signature style.

Apart from the aesthetic interiors, the store also features sculptural artworks by South Korean artist Jeesun Park, titled ‘the touchable flow.’ Fragmented hemispheres, arcs, cut-out shapes, ellipses, and other unfinished forms intertwine to create new compositions at the store.

The store also offers in-house personalization service, ‘Made for Me by Charles & Keith,’ which will allow the customers to get their names embroidered onto selected items. This service also includes two exclusive icons by the brand, inspired by Seoul: a magpie and a graphic artwork depicting the city’s vibrant essence.
