The flagship features, for the first time in South Korea, Charles & Keith’s in-house personalisation service, ‘Made for Me,’ which allows customers to engrave their names on their accessories of choice. Two city-exclusive icons inspired by Seoul have also been made available for the service.

Also showcased in the store are sculptural pieces by South Korean artist Jeesun Park, titled The Touchable Flow, characterised by fluid, organic curves finished with a combination of gloss and matte plaster, brushed stainless steel, and polished aluminum, blending seamlessly with the store’s minimalist interior.
