More About The L.K. Bennett Brand
When was L.K. Bennett founded?
The very first L.K. Bennett store popped up in London’s Wimbledon Village in 1990. At its inception, the brand was all about footwear. Their mission was to design and sell shoes that were fashion-forward, but never impractical. In fact, the founder quickly earned the nickname “Queen of the Kitten Heel” for her dedication to providing a glamorous shoe without sacrificing comfort. It should be noted that, while they do sell kitten heels, they’ve got heels of all sizes.
When was clothing added to the retailer’s stores?
In 1998, almost a decade after L.K. opened shop, L.K. Bennett formally introduced their first ready-to-wear collection. This move gave the store even more momentum, allowing it to rise to “fashion house” status. Since then, the store has continued finding success. They now have 166 branded locations around the world, including 114 in the UK and Ireland.
Which celebrities wear the L.K. Bennett brand?
It’s no secret that L.K. Bennett is a beloved brand by style icons and celebrities all over the world. Britain’s own Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is a big supporter and wearer of the brand. Those nude pumps she’s always wearing? Definitely made by L.K. Bennett. Her sister, Pippa, also wears L.K. Bennett. Other celebs who’ve worn the brand include Poppy Delevingne, Rosamund Pike and Caroline Issa, who actually created a shoe line with the brand.
