In September 2008 Charles Anastase announced a five-year production and licensing agreement with luxury Italian agency Pier spa, whose prestigious designerï¿½s include Balenciaga, Azzedine Alaia and Sophia Kokosalaki. The agreement launched with Charlesï¿½ debut pre-collection for Spring/ Summer 2009.
Charles Anastase is now based in London and his collection is available from the worldï¿½s most prestigious stores including Dover Street Market, 10 Corso Como, Browns Focus, Le Bon Marche and Maria Luisa.
Charlesï¿½ ethereal and often nostalgic collections are born of the desire to capture the beauty of the 19th century Victorian images, which have captivated him since childhood. Reminiscent of the demi-couture, which was the zeitgeist of this period for young ladies, Charlesï¿½ signature silhouettes evoke a naivety but yet are executed with the precision of the tailors of Savile Row.
