Last Friday, L.K.Bennett opened inside the Time Warner center. The British brand is known for its classic little dresses and trendy accessories, a combination that has made it a favorite with Kate and Pippa Middleton. Basically, this is where to shop if you're looking to impress the world's most imposing in-laws.
The Columbus Circle store is one of L.K. Bennett's largest, clocking in at 2100 square feet. The ladylike luxe decor—all powder pink and cream—suggests that this is part of the indoor shopping center's plan to bring in more upscale retail.
It's not the label's first American boutique, but it is the first one in New York. Look for in-store exclusives, which you'll recognize in the slideshow above as the dresses on black (as opposed to natural wood) hangers.
