In January 2023, the Internet went ablaze when teenager Zoe uploaded an unboxing of a Charles & Keith bag on her TikTok account “Zohtaco” with the caption "thank you dad". Nothing wrong with that, except that the netizens griped with how she referred to the S$80 Charles & Keith bag as "luxury". Charles & Keith bags are generally priced below S$200.

As the story unfolded, Zoe revealed that luxury is comparative. She said: “Your comment spoke volumes on how ignorant you seem because of your wealth. To you, an S$80 bag may not be a luxury. To me and my family, it is a lot... I can’t believe I got hate over a bag that I was so excited to have.” Indeed it's surprising and shocking how a simple video made with pure joy and excitement can generate so much hate. The video currently has 4.5 million views. Take a look below.

The brand subsequently invited Zoe Gabriel and her father to lunch and a tour of the office premises. By now, we all know that the teenager has emerged from cyberbullying stronger than ever. This International Women's Day, Zoe Gabriel has officially become Charles & Keith's Brand Community Ambassador modelling the purple Alia bag in support of UN Women's ‘Storytelling for Gender Equality’ programme. 20% of this special edition Alia bag proceeds will go towards funding the UN Women's 'Storytelling for Gender Equality' programme.
