A teenage girl in Singapore is having the last laugh after going viral on social media.
The 17-year-old teenager, known as Zoe, was criticised by netizens on TikTok for considering Charles & Keith (C&K) a luxury brand.
The bag was priced at S$80 (RM262).
Zoe was upset with the criticism because the bag was a gift from her father.
The video uploaded on 8 January caught the attention of C&K headquarters.
Their spokesperson confirmed that Zoe and her father had been invited to lunch with the brand’s founder.

C&K added that her parents deserved credit and should be proud to have raised such a grounded and resilient young woman.
Meanwhile, many netizens have also sided with Zoe.
Others said C&K should treat her most generously as her stance had done them a huge favour.
And yes I agree Charles & Keith is a luxury bag. Labeling something as luxurious is subjective. Even Uniqlo for me is a luxury. Looney Tunes notebooks were a luxury to us back in grade school. Having a car with AC was a luxury too since we previously owned a non-ac beetle soo💁♀️— eneri 🍒 (@channietofu) January 13, 2023
