Introducing the L.K. Bennett x Preen Collection

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and L.K. Bennett launch their first ever ready-to-wear collaboration today online and in selected L.K. Bennett stores.

Design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi drew inspiration from the floral watercolours of Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh to create this timeless collection of luxury silk dresses, floral print skirts and soft knitwear. Rendered in a rich palette of pinks, purples, reds and blues, you’re sure to fall for this elegant capsule collection.

Olivia Palermo was of course the first to be spotted wearing a piece from the collection during London Fashion Week, wearing the gorgeous Valli dress which mixes white stripes, florals and bright colours.

The Preen designers have described the dress as a “great example of us drawing on an archive Preen design and adapting it with a new graphic floral print for the L.K. Bennett customer.”

Prices for the range, which comprises 16 pieces, start at £195 and go up to £550.

I wonder if we’ll see the Duchess in this collection?

Highlights include the Sonic Dark pink sequinned dress that will definitely attract compliments come party season.

Sylvia Hoeks In Preen – ‘Blade Runner 2049’ LA Photocall

Continuing the ‘Blade Runner 2049’ tour, Sylvia Hoeks eschewed any futuristic leanings for a softer side at the LA Photocall on Sunday (September 24).

The Dutch actress has worn Preen at a couple of different photocalls during the ‘Blade Runner’ tour, but this is one of her most whimsical looks yet.

The Fall 2017 dress had a sheer pink overplay revealing a mix of multicoloured flowers underneath. The modified version had less voluminous sleeves and the sheer outer layer covered the entirety of the floral layer underneath.

Many are suffering from sheer fatigue, but this layered ensemble is very different from the illusion gowns we’re sometimes inundated with. It excites me to see where designers could take this in the upcoming seasons. Thoughts?

Sylvia Hoeks In Preen – ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Berlin & Rome Photocall

Sylvia Hoeks brought some feminine flair to the ‘Blade Runner 2049’ press tour, first at the Berlin photocall on Sunday (September 17) then on Tuesday (September 19) at the Rome photocall.

Berlin Photocall: The inky fabric of her Preen ensemble toughened up the delicate ruffles and gathers. Cinched with a studded belt and accented with black pointed-toe pumps, the outfit was in keeping with the film’s futuristic theme without veering into clichés or becoming costume-y. This was in total contrast to her co-star Ana de Armas’ glittery affair.

Rome Photocall: Adding some blooms to her black colour palette, the Dutch actress wore a Preen Fall 2017 dress which brought a moody elegance. The Pierre Hardy ‘Eyes’ sandals added a surrealist element to the outfit.

The Hollywood Reporter And SAG-AFTRA Inaugural Emmy Nominees Night

Ahead of this weekend’s Emmys, lovely ladies attended The Hollywood Reporter And SAG-AFTRA Inaugural Emmy Nominees Night on Thursday (September 14).

Natalia Dyer: Ravishing in red, the young actress brought some fun to the carpet in a Preen Fall 2017 dress with coordinating heels. The patterned Jimmy Choo clutch added to the youthful air.

Madeline Brewer: This Paule Ka Fall 2017 gown had the potential to be fabulous, but it has left me feeling a bit deflated—and the dress appears in a similar state. It seems there are some structural issues given its lopsided appearance.

Salma Hayek In Preen – SiriusXM Studios

Salma Hayek paid a visit to SiriusXM Studios on Thursday (August 17) in LA, before headed to tape her guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel where she promoted her new film, ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’.

I love the romantic and feminine feel of her Preen Resort 2018 dress, plus the relaxed undone vibe and the fluidity of the fabric.

As we know Salma can overcook her looks – especially when she opts for Gucci these days – but this pretty floral frock feels effortless.

Some might object to the Gucci ‘Angel’ platform sandals, but I love how it picks up and highlights the pink flowers in her dress.

Elisabeth Moss In Preen – Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet

It’s fair to say that Elisabeth Moss’ red carpet style has failed to excite the majority since Cannes, but I feel like things might change upon seeing her Preen Resort 2018 dress worn to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Grants Banquet on Wednesday (August 2) in Beverly Hills, California.

Bold colours, a dropped waist, and a fluted hem – are all present in this striking floral-print dress.

I love how it offers a graceful asymmetry that feels simultaneously modern and nostalgic.

Factor in her Edie Parker yellow ‘Jean’ clutch, Stella Luna ‘Indispensable’ ankle-strap pumps and subtle Jennifer Fisher jewels which in total perfect this blooming look.
