Charles & Ron are in love, in love with the Mediterranean, in love with their Maltese heritage and in love with beautiful feminine shapes.
The Charles & Ron signature in house designed prints take on a more graphic style this Fall/ Winter 2016/17. The vibrant collection is inspired by ecclesial colour schemes and by the traditional decora- tive lights seen on a Maltese Basilica facade during mediterranean village feasts. Some of the prints feature references and a crown worn by the village patron saint ; St. Helen.
Cardinal Pink, Warm Red, and Saffron Yellow are mixed together in a contemporary colour block pattern and the signature colour Cardinal Pink,is also combined with Rich Classic Camel and highlighted with black which remains a staple in the Charles & Ron collections.The new bag designs are based on the bag style that Charles & Ron had the honour to design as a gift to HRH Queen Elizabeth II last year.
The style was re-worked and made in the finest Italian leather in Fall/Winter 16/17 colours.After their show during New York fashion Week the Charles & Ron collection has once again been picked up by international colour company Pantone.
