L.K.Bennett is an international, accessible luxury brand that reflects its unmistakable British heritage; a modern blend of femininity, colour and style. Our collections of shoes, ready-to-wear, handbags and accessories, appeal to women who want a wardrobe perfect for any occasion. Founded by Linda Bennett in London in 1990, L.K.Bennett has since established itself as a leading British fashion brand, offering sophisticated collections of shoes, clothing, handbags and accessories to meet the lifestyle of every woman.
Originally renowned for signature shoe collections favoured by celebrities and stylish women alike, L.K.Bennett rapidly became the ultimate destination for feminine footwear, leading to the introduction of women’s wear collections in 1998.
Ten years later, L.K.Bennett embarked upon a significant step in the expansion strategy when Robert Bensoussan, co-founder of Sirius Equity, together with Phoenix Equity Partners, invested in the brand as majority shareholders to support the continued growth of the company. Annick Gorman who previously held creative posts at Celine, Cacharel and Galeries Lafayette was appointed in December 2008 as Creative Director to direct the design philosophy.
The brand vision has evolved to ensure that fashion product is the key driver of the company. The over 135 strong retail stores now form part of a design-driven international label with a luxury twist. The distinctive handwriting stays strong with a dedicated in-house design team creating looks that appeal to our expanding customer base.
