StyleOnTheCouch Loves: L.K. Bennett by Caroline Issa

This week in London has been a busy one!  One of the highlights was a preview of the new SS13 collection of clothing and footwear from British brand L.K. Bennett and their exciting collaborating with Caroline Issa, fashion director of Tank Magazine.  A capsule collection of shoes and bags inspired by Caroline’s trips to Thailand, hot neon colours with embroidery, oriental flowers and pom poms (see image below, top left) make for a delightful spring in your step come summer.  The shoes in particular are very much in keeping with Issa’s personal style aesthetic – Issa was born to in Montreal to a Chinese mother and a half-Lebanese, half-Iranian father and is very much a multi-cultural beauty.

The capsule collection of shoes – including shoe boots, ankle-strap stilettos and kitten heels – and two handbags styles, will be launched in February next year.

The L.K. Bennett team sure know how to put on a great launch event and the preview evening involved copious amounts of champagne, tasty nibbles and lots of education from their team of designers who were on hand to answer questions (I learned that the creation of a perfect court shoe is quite a meticulous process at the brand!)

I walked away from the event with a lovely gift of the Emmaline shoulder bag, seen here in light rose shade.  The smaller sister of the brand’s signature bag Emma, Emmaline is a classic bag in a simple shape with flap-over front and some lovely double strap detailing.  The perfect tote for my morning out in Notting Hill when I took these photos, it is available in black, grey, tan and pink from the L.K. Bennett website.

Image above: the new spring summer collection – far left, the Flora heel which captured the attention of myself and fellow blogger Anna of South Molton St Style, who immediately wish-listed the shoe.  Costing 185 GBP, Flora will be available in January.

Many thanks to L.K. Bennett for a wonderful evening and to Anna for these pictures.  Watch out for L.K. Bennett by Caroline Issa early next year.

Wearing: Carvela Kurt Geiger ‘Stop’ heels; Timo Weiland skirt, Topshop top and Emmaline bag.

    I just discovered L.K. Bennett about a month ago on one of my frequent trip to Galeries Lafayette. I was really impressed by the quality of the pieces and have been dying to pick something from the collection ever since, but something has held me back, and now I’m so glad, because this collaboration is stunning, and what better time to pick my first piece than when it launches!
