The Kensington Bespoke online store is jam-packed full of luxury brands you’ll be very familiar with, and some you’re going to love discovering. With over 60 years’ experience collecting high-end accessories, homeware and fragrances, their collection is hand picked for stylish shoppers.
The Kensington Bespoke personal shoppers have selected these three distinctive, luxury brands as some of their current favourites.
The world’s most famous makeup sponge
It’s fair to say the original beautyblender has revolutionised the way we apply makeup. The world’s first elliptically shaped, non-disposable, high definition cosmetic sponge applicator is a must-have whether you’re a professional or just fond of a flawless finish.
The beautyblender is latex free and features an open cell structure with interconnected pores, so product easily soaks into the material and blends into the skin without wasting excess. The unique, curved shape of the sponge means no streaks or lines and perfectly smooth application.
Users can apply both liquid and powder makeup with the beautyblender, and use it damp or dry for either a dewy or matte finish.
Accessories inspired by the National Opera of Paris
Repetto can trace its history back to 1947, when founder Rose Repetto created a pair of ballet shoes for her son. Repetto became a fashion house in a workshop near the National Opera of Paris, and created the famous ‘Cendrillon’ ballerina flats worn by Brigitte Bardot in the 1956 film And God Created Woman.
Kensington Bespoke stock Repetto’s classic and charming range of ballet inspired accessories and handbags. The Arabesque shopping bag is a bestseller, with an Ecru cotton twill lining, ballet pink leather exterior, and light gold metallic accessories. The mini Cendrillon key ring is the perfect charm for your Repetto bag, with a red patent finish and gold ring and snap hook.
Wallets with a Royal Warrant
Ettinger’s timeless leather goods are still expertly crafted in the UK, just as they were when Gerry Ettinger founded the business in 1934. Ettinger bought a leather suitcase factory after a stint working in film production in Italy and Germany. His contacts proved valuable in his new venture, and after pausing activity during World War II, his leather brand soon become known for quality and innovation.
Ettinger wallets and purses are made from smooth calf leather and soft drummed cowhide. These leather goods aren’t about style over substance, however, there’s room for three credit card slots, a coin purse, and six separate pockets for notes and receipts. Presented in a handmade imperial blue Ettinger gift box, these wallets make the perfect gift for a loved one or yourself.
