Special Shoes: Jenny Packham x LK Bennett

This bridal collaboration fuses the GLAMOUR OF HOLLYWOOD ICONS with the vintage style of 1930S PARIS. We asked eveningwear designer JENNY PACKHAM to explain …

What inspired the collection? I love the idea of a wearing an interesting shoe on your wedding day – intricate detail and embellishment adds glamour to your look. Your bridal shoes are the most special pair you will buy; shoes to treasure, whether you wear them again and again or just for your wedding. I wanted to ensure there’s a style for every bride that can be worn from the ceremony to reception. It is important to feel comfortable so I created a variety of heel heights and shapes, from the high stiletto, to the low block heel and flat shoes.

Favourite shoe in the collection? It is so difficult to choose! I love Dahlia, an ivory peep-toe sandal with a “necklace” of crystals – this is the perfect shoe for a bride who wants to make a statement.

Any wedding day shoe hacks? Always wear in your shoes! It’s also clever to buy two pairs in different heel heights, as a wedding is a two-fold event. Elegance and first impressions count and then carefree abandonment follows, especially on the dance floor, so a shoe change is recommended!


The LK Bennett X Jenny Packham collection starts from €255. At LK Bennett, Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 16 and www.lkbennett.com.
