When we heard two of our absolute favourite designers – Jenny Packham and L.K.Bennett – were collaborating to create their first-ever Bridal shoes and clutch collection we just knew we were going to be swooning over some fabulous designs.
Inspired by the leading ladies of the golden age of cinema, the collection fuses the mesmerising glamour of Old Hollywood icons Vivien Leigh and Bette Davis, with the vintage style of 1930’s Paris.
The ‘Dahlia’ high sandal, with drop crystals is reminiscent of art deco jewels whilst the ‘Felicity’ high sandal, with glittered star detail and the ‘Fern’ satin court, embellished with delicate jewels and pearls, offer an air of vintage for the fashion-forward bride.
For the modern romantic, stand-out styles include the ethereal ‘Scarlet’ heel and ‘Cari’ flat shoe, adorned with organza peonies and the lace ‘Parris’ block heel with grosgrain bow. For alternative brides, look to the bohemian leather ‘Dorothy’ heel and ‘Deedee’ flat sandal.
The collection of footwear combines the aesthetic of Jenny Packham’s and L.K.Bennett’s timeless designs; creating versatile, beautiful footwear, to take you from ceremony to celebrations. The range offers a variety of heel heights, from 100mm, to 50mm and flat options.
There is a strong synergy between the L.K.Bennett woman and the Jenny Packham Bride so it seemed natural and very exciting for me to collaborate with their design team.
A project of passion, the combination of the Jenny Packham aesthetic with the renowned design heritage and quality of L.K.Bennett has resulted in a beautiful collection of shoes and bags of which I am very proud.”

As you would expect the collection offers matching bag styles, in an array of fabrics; including lace or shimmering box clutches.
Our favorite is the ‘Brigitte’ vintage-inspired embellished satin pouch and the ‘Sissi’ grosgrain structured clutch with pearl edging, perfect to carry wedding-day essentials.
And you won’t have to wait long for the collection to hit stores as the footwear and four styles of clutches are available from February 7th 2018 in selected L.K.Bennett stores and lkbennett.com.
