StyleNest recently stumbled across Benna, an online luxury gem of a boutique and a must-have for all you jewellery junkies and accessories addicts out there. Stocking a mixture of new and vintage pieces, Benna offers an eclectic edit of new season stock and vintage finds that will add the finishing touches to your look.
Jewellery brands available on the e-boutique range from the timeless elegance of Lara Bohinc to the cult quirkiness of Mawi. It’s also a great place to keep up to date with the latest jewellery brands such as Alex Monroe’s collection of delicate gold pieces and Kenneth Jay’s statement collars also feature.
If you’re a shoe addict, Benna’s range of Camilla Skovgaard’s structural heels are on our wish list – in particular the Sweep Cut Stiletto Boot. (available at benna.co.uk). They may be last season stock but as they’re now down from £325 to £195, they’re an absolute steal and will be loved for seasons to come.
Benna’s range of bags are ideal if you’re looking for something a little special, and with the wedding season cropping up it’s the perfect place to find an oversized clutch or a vintage inspired evening bag. Lara Bohinc’s SS12 collection has caught our eye with a range of 20s inspired shapes and art deco details adorning box clutches; we’ll be pairing ours with metallic fabrics, sequins and drop waists.
Gift buying is made all the easier with plenty of small leather goods, luxury keyrings and statement scarves on offer. Plus Benna’s nifty Gift Guide, which filters products into categories of £100 and under, £100-£250, and so on will ensure you can shop easily, quickly and within budget.
But it’s Benna’s collection of fabulous vintage finds that really makes this site stand apart from other jewellery and accessories sites. The range is small but well sourced with everything from stunning 1920s beaded bags in mint condition, to vintage Chanel costume jewellery. Shopping the season’s trends is great but sometimes the old ones are the best.
