The lush tropical island of Hawaii is the birthplace of Charriol’s current generation of designers, who are upholding their father’s legacy of fashionable, luxury goods. Alexandre Charriol and Coralie Charriol-Paul are respectively the brand’s Artistic and Creative Director, creating relevant, fresh and modern accessories, watches and jewelry for a hip global audience.
Both Alexandre and Coralie were born on O'uha in Hawaii and it is this vibrant island culture that has inspired a new collection of handbags, Forever. The range expresses the same youthful mood as CHARRIOL’s ‘Forever’ Jewelry line, showcasing Alexandre’s eye for color and Coralie’s on-trend design approach. The range will be unveiled in October, and two further collections will be shown at BaselWorld 2016.
Fourteen beautifully bright bags and matching wallets are worked in a selection of leathers, from calfskin to textured saffiano, soft leather, press croco and soft monogram styles. Colors range from prune to sky blue, orange, grey, tomato, fuchsia and lemon: tropical shades inspired by the sea, sands, skies and flowers of Hawaii.
‘Forever’ includes a spectrum of handbag styles, and each has a name, taken from the kaleidoscope of island memories shared by Alexandre and Coralie growing up in Hawaii. A fashionable bucket bag, a classic tote, cross-body satchels, a chic envelope clutch, a roomy bowling bag and structured top-handle handbag make up the collection. The range also includes variations on the ‘Boston’ bag, notably a peach and black model decorated with a folk-inspired appliqué leatherwork motif of a toucan and a fox: a look that is totally on trend with fashion’s current craftwork focus, and which will be available at a later date, in spring/summer 2016.
Discover the ‘Malia’, bucket bag, ‘North Shore’ tote, Coconut Island’ cross body satchel, ‘Aloha’ flag bag, ‘Sunset’ clutch, ‘Nene’ Boston bag, ‘Diamond Head’ bowling bag and ‘Turtle Bay’ top handle bag in crocodile.
