L.K.Bennett, one of the UK’s affordable luxury brands, has chosen London Fashion Week – when the eyes of the fashion world are firmly focused on London – to launch their latest Fashion Week Capsule Collection, full of this season’s must haves.
With its Prince of Wales checks, sharp tailoring and bell sleeve silhouettes, this edit is strongly influenced by the 1970s while the luxe fabrics and the gorgeous autumn hues throughout the collection offer cool confidence and assured femininity to the wearer.
The edit features dresses (of all kinds), jackets, blouses, jumpers, trousers and skirts, as well as a Petite dress which is new for this clever brand. And while browsing the edit, one can easily click to view all the stunning court shoes, boots and bags for which L.K.Bennett are justifiably famed.
We adore the entire edit, featuring as it does our favourite fabrics, notably silk and leather, but if we were forced to pick out just a few pieces, it would have to be these…
The Delli Check Coat
This beautifully simple, uncluttered coat is cut from virgin wool in a Prince of Wales check. Mid-calf and gently flared and with that statement button, concealed fastening and military flap pockets, this is a coat to take you perfectly to an autumn/winter occasion as well as to the office.
The Lula Forest Leather Trouser
The Lula trousers are a stunning interpretation of the season’s favourite ankle-grazers. Crafted from butter-soft leather in a gorgeous deep green, they are cut to elongate the silhouette. Style them with a silk tee or sheer blouse for going out, or with knits and boots for relaxed weekend wear.
Television’s Holly Willoughby, of This Morning, has already got her hands on these sensational trousers. Holly, a co-presenter of ITV’s flagship breakfast show, wore them on air when she interviewed the unfortunate Laura Simpson, who is alleged to have “got into a car” with married Everton footballer Wayne Rooney. Holly teamed her Lula trousers with a camel sweater – a look which we love for weekends, lunch with the girls or for the This Morning sofa!
The Manon Check Woven Dress
This stunning dress is crafted in silk-georgette but is in a Prince-of-Wales check, more usually expected in tailoring! The full-length sheer sleeves are given an on-trend twist with a double button cuff and the irregular pleats give it movement while the frayed detailing adds further edginess. We’d pair this gorgeous dress with straight leg knee-high boots for daytime and with suede courts for occasions.
The Tina Forest Leather Skirt
Like the Lula trousers, the stunning Tina skirt is also cut from butter-soft leather, again in that stunning deep green. Designed to sit high on the waist, it has a flattering A-line silhouette fastened with gold buttons. It is described as ‘mini’ but the model wearing it is 178cm/5’10” so we think anyone of more ‘average’ height could easily wear it, by teaming it with opaques and flats…
