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'
Above: Our absolute favourite
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:
L.K.Bennett’s CEO Didier Drouet comments:
