Model, Journalist and British Fashion Council ambassador Laura Bailey has collaborated with L.K Bennett, one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s favoured shoe brands, for a capsule collection of footwear, as well as a clutch bag. The collection was inspired by the beauty of the Amalfi coast as well as glamorous film stars of the Fifties and Sixties. The five ‘retro modern’ designs will be each named after a legendary Italian actress, such as Monica Vitti and Claudia Cardinale.
Bailey said L.K. Bennett allowed her to “dream up my perfect summer shoes, while leaning on their technical expertise”. Robert Bensoussan, chief executive of L.K. Bennett, said he took pleasure in watching Bailey’s “unique aesthetic come to life in collaboration with our creative team”. The collection will be available in stores and online from the 25th of March 2015, with prices from £195.
