SEP 5: Even though this is not an inexpensive option, I thought I should share the re-issued LK Bennett version of the Jude jacket, now called the Judi jacket (£225, roughly $300). One FYI: at this point the pieces are only offered on the LK Bennett UK/International site, not on the US/CAN site. In case you haven’t seen the other pieces in the group, including a new version of Kate’s Davina dress, visit our Retail Roundup page here.
