L.K. Bennett London by Caroline Issa SS13! Xx

We are loving the L. K. Bennett London
exclusive capsule collection
 of shoes and bags 
for Spring Summer 2013, by Caroline Issa.

They are just perfect for 
this Spring Summer season
with their exotic oriental flowers, zig-zags 
and swing-tag pom-poms
 in hot neon Thai pinks, oranges, greens,
 yellows and reds on  
backgrounds of natural, 
pink or black canvas and leather.

'My Style Philosopy Has Always been 
about letting your
Shoes do the Talking'
Caroline Issa

Above:  Our absolute favourite
Parrot £250

There are six pairs of shoes and two bags 
in this Limited Edition collaboration
including these ankle-strap stilettos, shoe boots, 
the kitten heel, a loafer
and two clutches.

Caroline Issa was inspired by her trips to Thailand:
“I was excited to work on a capsule shoe collection with L.K. Bennett, 
a brand I admire for their craftsmanship and fantastic value.
 My style philosophy has always been about letting your shoes do the talking 
- so I tend to dress with shoes as the starting point. 
I worked with their brilliant design team to dream up 
shoes I'd have fun wearing this coming Spring

and thought their quintessentially British take on

 an exotic inspiration would be a fabulous combination,
 and I'm so pleased with how they came out. 
With this capsule collection, the shoes will complete any office 
or cocktail outfit in seconds - and bonus: 
I'll just have to look down at my feet 
to be transported onto the beaches of Thailand!"

L.K.Bennett’s CEO Didier Drouet comments: 

“I’m delighted with our collaborative project with Caroline, 
it gives added flavour to our existing collections 
– showcasing striking designs that embody her renowned style aesthetic.”
