Jenny Packham + L.K.Bennett = The Kate Middleton Dream.
Words by Amy Lewis
Whether bridal shoes are at the top of your shopping list or not, you need to take a good look at the new collaboration between Kate Middleton’s favourite fashion designer, Jenny Packham, and high-street favourite L.K Bennett—who, incidentally, also make the DOC’s famous nude heels.
A collection we’re pretty sure K-Mid will be shopping herself, the LKB X Jenny Packham hook-up comprises 16 pairs of vintage-inspired bridal shoes (but hey, we’re all for breaking the rules and wearing them every day), plus four different clutch bags ideal for the Big Day.
Taking inspiration from old Hollywood icons such as Vivien Leigh and Bette Davis, the collection harks back to 1930s Paris with art deco jewels, drop crystals and plenty of romantic glamour.
Love a statement heel? Look to the Dahlia high sandal, covered heel-to-toe in crystal embellishment, while the strappy Felicity sandals come with glitzy stars which look far more chic than they sound (see our favourites below).
If you’re looking for a sleek take on vintage heels, the pointed Benedetta shoe is among our favourites in the range, with its white satin upper, shimmering suede and pearl details.
In search of a gorgeous bridal flat? Jenny Packham and LKB have you covered too. The lace slingback Parris shoe is the perfect compromise between elegance and sensibility, while the satin Cari flats adorned with whimsical organza flowers are perfect for teaming with shorter hemlines.
Launching today, the full collection is available both online and in selected L.K.Bennett stores, with prices starting at £195.
