L.K.Bennett Opens at Troy, Michigan’s The Somerset Collection
Saturday, October 6, 2012 (Troy, Michigan) – British fashion house, L.K.Bennett, opened its sixth U.S. women’s boutique today at The Somerset Collection in Troy, Michigan. The 1,600 square foot retail space will be the brand’s first freestanding boutique in Michigan.
Founded in London in 1990, L.K.Bennett has since established itself as a modern heritage brand, offering elegant collections of women’s shoes, ready-to-wear, handbags and accessories to meet the lifestyle and requirements of every modern woman. Originally renowned for signature shoe collections favored by celebrities and stylish women alike, L.K.Bennett is now the ultimate destination for accessible luxury, including glamorous footwear, accessories and womenswear collections.
The store’s design creates an elegant and welcoming environment that reflects the sophisticated persona of L.K.Bennett’s collections. Set against a soft powder pink backdrop and delicate beige woodwork, bespoke display units with a mirror finish, rich woolen carpets and fifties-inspired Swedish furnishings create a relaxed, modern romantic atmosphere.
L.K.Bennett has chosen Emily Mortimer to front the Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign. Recognized as one of Britain’s finest actresses, Emily brings more than her beauty to the collection — she brings assurance and magnetic appeal. The Autumn Winter 2012 collection reflects this persona — glamorous, bold and luxurious. It is inspired by women with diverse lifestyles, women like Emily who balance every element of their life while always seeking to look and feel their best.
L.K.Bennett currently has over 130 stores in the U.K., Europe, UAE, U.S. and a successful e-commerce website at lkbennett.com. The Somerset Collection store will be L.K.Bennett’s fourteenth boutique in the U.S. and sixth stand-alone store in the country. The brand is also available in Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, New Jersey, New York and Bloomingdale’s concessions in New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Illinois, New Jersey, Los Angeles, and Massachusetts as well as department stores and specialty boutiques nationwide.
“Since opening our first freestanding U.S. store in Chicago in April 2011, we have continued to seek out core locations that best represent the L.K.Bennett woman. Somerset Collection fulfills our criteria perfectly and we look forward to introducing Troy and its surrounding communities to our brand,” said Anthony DiMasso, President, L.K.Bennett U.S.A.
The new L.K.Bennett boutique is located on level one in Somerset Collection South in Troy, Michigan.
