Taking inspiration from French New Wave cinema and the women that dominated this movement, our new collection nods to the elegance and effortlessness of its style - with an LKB twist. Discover everyday hero pieces that play a leading role in a wearable, stylish wardrobe.
When designing our Autumn/Winter ‘21 Collection, our design team wanted to create a wardrobe of cool, comfortable pieces that exude effortlessness - something we all need after a year of hanging up our heels and finding comfort in more casual dressing.
This led to images of Jean Luc Godard’s ‘Godard girls’, like Anna Karina and Jean Serberg, and references from Ed van der Elsken’s photographic book ‘Love on the Left Bank’ which documented the artists, writers and aesthetes of this iconic area, being pinned to mood boards. Think cat eyeliner and chic, simple fashion, reimagined with a modern, LKB interpretation that moves away from the obvious.
The easy elegance of it feels right for right now, where we want to feel polished and pulled together, but with an air of nonchalance to ease us back into dialling up our wardrobes once again.
The colour palette takes on muted tones like luxurious, buttery cream and camel, soft and peachy pinks to bitter chocolate, tobacco and conker shades or more graphic colour combinations like monochromatic black and white with focuses on texture and subtle patterns.
There’s luxurious and laidback everyday pieces, like a languid trench teamed with a pretty shirt and slouchy trousers to unmistakable 1960s and ‘70s- inspired full leather looks, knitted dresses, two pieces and Aran sweaters with feminine collars (a Godard Girl favourite), alongside signature silk dresses, tweed and of course, back-to-work tailoring - ranging from chunky cream cord to androgynous pinstripe suiting.
You’ll also find quilted pieces, snaffle trims on clothing as well as on heeled loafers with matching saddle-style bags, cool-girl plaids and capes and the LKB take on the puffer jacket - elegant yet easy and filled with recycled down with matching scarves and handbag. Our boots cover everything your diary has to throw at you. Whether you want to wear chunky walking boots with a dress and a knit, beautiful long leather boots with a pencil skirt or classic ankle boots with tailoring.
Eveningwear is classic LKB, with sequins, velvet, lace and lurex in black, gold and pink tones. Shoes and accessories complement this with pretty rosette corsages on satin shoes, strings of pearls on strappy sandals, matching clutches and statement gold-plated jewellery made in Britain. Lastly, new to our collection this season is LKB loungewear, which goes from the chic chrysanthemum print silk and cotton pieces to the cosy cashmere jogger sets designed for downtime or those still working from home. And, for those who acquired a pooch over the lockdown months, our first range of dog accessories, matching to a coat in our clothing collection in beautiful heritage fabric.
