What is fashion for if not to cause joy? London-based photographer and artist Coco Capitan understands this and has channeled that uplifting message into her collaboration with Singapore-based footwear and accessories brand Charles & Keith. “I wanted to create a message of optimism,” says Capiàn in a press release. “That’s why I chose to talk about a wild flower that grows on concrete. I find it incredible that nature still manages to grow in big cities, despite how difficult we make it.
