Kate Middleton's Go-To Designers Just Created the Bridal Shoe Line of Your Dreams (Ahem, Meghan!)
It’s the fashion collaboration of Kate Middleton‘s dreams — and it’s coming true!
Two of Kate’s favorite brands, L.K. Bennett (who makes her go-to patent nude pumps) and Jenny Packham (the designer behind several of Kate’s ensembles, including quite a few evening gowns) are teaming up to create a line of bridal shoes that is nothing short of magical.
The timing couldn’t be more serendipitous, with not one, but two royal weddings around the corner.
And they may be a perfect fit for royal bride-to-be Meghan Markle. The collection is inspired by old Hollywood glamour — with icons like Vivien Leigh and Bette Davis serving as inspiration — fused with the fashion of Paris in the 1930s. A fitting choice for a Hollywood star turned British royal.
With a chic collection that includes lace-covered sling-backs, intricately-detailed bumps, silver strappy sandals and more, their aim is “to take a bride from ceremony to celebrations.”
Jenny Packham, who launched a bridal line in 2016, said that the two brands’ similar aesthetics and customer made the collaboration a perfect fit on both sides.
“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,” Packham said. “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.”
The collection will not only sell shoes, but also coordinating clutches. There will be 16 styles of shoes and five different clutches. The prices run from £195-495, or $278-705. Both brands are U.K. based, but the collection will be available globally.
You can shop the collection starting Feb. 7 on lkbennett.com or at L.K. Bennett stores around the world.
