Exclusive Collection for Victoria Quarter Store

Exclusive Collection for Victoria Quarter Store
Victoria Quarter’s L.K.Bennett store has announced that it will be the only one of the brand’s Yorkshire-based outlets to carry an exclusive capsule collection by London designer Caroline Issa.
The limited edition collection features statement sandals, ankle-strap stilettos, shoe boots, the kitten heel, and a loafer as well as catch-me-if-you can clutches. Hot, neon Thai-inspired embroidery puffs out in captivating pinks, oranges, greens, yellows and reds based on a background of natural or black canvas and leather. Delicate and striking oriental flowers and zig-zags welcome in the spring season with swing-tag pom-poms showing the way to breezy, easy summer-time glamour.
Caroline Issa, a consultant to L.K.Bennett London, has worked closely with the footwear and accessories design team to create a collection inspired by her trips to Thailand:
“I was excited to work on a capsule shoe collection with L.K. Bennett” said Caroline. “They are 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, as a bonus, I'll just have to look down at my feet to be transported onto the beaches of Thailand!"
VQ Centre Director, John Bade added, “L.K.Bennett have been a firm favourite in VQ since they opened, so it’s particularly pleasing to hear that this store will be one of only a select few that will be featuring this collection. In an ever more competitive marketplace, exclusive collections such as this are an excellent way of attracting customers and provide significant point of difference.”

The full collection will be revealed closer to launch time and will be priced from £245 (shoes) and £275 (bags), and will be available from Tuesday 19th February.
