L.K. Bennett is now an international luxury fashion house and leading British brand that offers sophisticated collections of shoes, clothing and accessories. However, it is important to remember that founder Linda Kristin Bennett originally became known for her line of sophisticated, glamorous yet affordable designer footwear after launching her line back in 1990.
Her signature shoe collections quickly became popular among celebrities and stylish woman alike and were soon renowned for the essence of British elegance and style found in all of Bennett’s designs. After growing from humble beginnings of her first store in Wimbledon village, the brand continues to expand the over 135 strong international retail stores to create a luxury British label with a twist.
L.K Bennett shoes is a collection that may boast unbeatable British style and elegance but they do not compromise on comfort. Far from it – the brand’s shoes are known for their deep sense of practicality with women across the world praising the combination of comfort and luxury they receive from L.K. Bennett’s shoes.
As part of her commitment to glamour as well as comfort L.K. Bennett quickly became known as the “queen of the kitten heel”. After opening her first store in Wimbledon the brand became instantly recognisable for its elegant kitten heeled shoes which provide women with a healthy dose of glamour along with practicality. The fashion house has stayed true to its trademark style over the years whilst developing contemporary additions.
Another one of L.K. Bennett’s signature shoe designs comes in the form of the brand’s platform sledge courts. Despite promising a glamorous high heel the platform design adds practicality and comfort. An incredibly versatile shoe that is known for being durable enough to take from “desk to dinner”. These heels are thought to promise a sound investment for stylish women who also need to stay on the move.
There’s no denying it L.K. Bennett’s shoes are unmistakably and quintessentially British. Despite global expansion the brand’s products have always reflected true British style and to prove just that the shoes have become a firm favourite amongst one of the biggest supporters of British fashion – the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate Middleton has been noted for being a keen advocate of the brand’s line of shoes and is regularly spotted at public events donning a pair of L.K. Bennett sledge heels, highlighting the brand’s sense of true British style as well as the practicality and durability of L.K. Bennett shoes.
