Street style icon, editor-in-chief, CEO and now… accessories designer. Do Caroline Issa’s talents know no end? The executive style director of Tank magazine and Because London has worked with L.K. Bennett to create a range of shoes and bags inspired by her travels in Thailand. The result? A capsule collection of two designs of clutch bag and six shoe styles encompassing sharp-toed stilettos, kitten heeled courts and chic slippers.
Modelesque proportions and polished look aside, Issa has become a favourite of the street style snappers thanks to her knack of putting together outfits that look elegant and restrained – often choosing an eye-catching accessory to add a final flourish. In black and cream leather and cotton, the L.K. Bennett collection features bold, neon-bright embellishment, in the form of intricate embroidery and playful pom poms. What to wear with? Jazz up a basic ensemble of white shirt and slim-cut trousers (or jeans at the weekend) and pop on Issa’s embroidered sandals. Or throw on your favourite old-faithful LBD and add a pom pom-accented clutch. Chic, elegant and just a little eclectic – Caroline Issa’s capsule collection provides a stylish, quirky finish for even the simplest of outfits.
The collection is available to buy online at L.K.Bennett.
