Sorry, do our eyes deceive us? Is that Rosamund Pike nonchalantly leaning against Big Ben? Yes, actually. The actress has partnered with L.K. Bennett to promote the shoe and accessory label’s AW13 collection and the results are very, very British.
This isn’t an homage to the Attack of the 50-Foot Woman, rather it's an exploration of “miniature London,” the brand’s heritage, and a dash of swinging ‘60s style for good measure. If that wasn’t enough, the brand has signed on the actress to create a range of handbags in colour ways that are described by Pike as, “good enough to eat.” Quite. The practical yet very chic collection features styles called Rosie, Rosa, and Rosamund (see what they did there?) and will be available from July 17. You’ll find us
tucking into snapping up the green Rosie style. (L.K.Bennett)
