When it comes to planning outfits for London Fashion Week, there’s a wealth of British designers to choose from. While elegant dresses and sharp suiting are often a tempting choice, sometimes it is the accessories that are really worth the investment. A simple combination of white shirt and blue jeans can become effortlessly luxurious with the right handbag and a brand-new pair of designer shoes. When suitcase space is limited, making a statement with your accessories is an excellent option.
During fashion week, finding the balance between comfort and style is key. For footwear, Jimmy Choo’s stylish stilettos are a timeless choice, and for something a little more practical heritage footwear brand Church’s offers leather boots and brogues that will last a lifetime. When it comes to more luxury, fashion-forward designs, Rupert Sanderson and Nicholas Kirkwood are the names to know in London.
If handbags are your accessory of choice, then big British names such as Mulberry and Burberry will not disappoint. However, that’s not to say that there aren’t new labels to discover. London-based Danse Lente has made a name for itself with modern affordable designs, while womenswear designer Rejina Pyo has recently added bags to her offering. For an even more subtle update, a pair of Victoria Beckham’s much-coveted sunglasses or a modern cap from historic brand Lock & Co will prepare you for fashion week from head to toe.
