Get your credit cards ready: Kate‘s pumps are even more accessible now. L.K. Bennett, the brand behind the Duchess’s nude heels and classic black wedges, opened a 2,100-sq.-ft. flagship boutique in New York this week, bringing its classic fashions closer to consumers.
The store, inside Manhattan’s ritzy Shops at Columbus Circle, features women’s dresses and separates, plus shoes, bags and small accessories. It’s the brand’s fifth standalone store in the U.S.; last year, boutiques opened in Chicago, Atlanta, Houston and Hackensack, NJ.
Kate has been seen in many of the brand’s pieces; aside from making the company famous with her love of the nude “Sledge” platforms (available in store with high and low heels), she popularized the black “Greta” wedges (also available in two heights) and navy “Art” shoes, and most recently wore a smart L.K. Bennett suit for an outing with Queen Elizabeth. Tell us: Are you interested to shop Kate’s style?
