Kurt Geiger does Everything But The Dress


Last season, Kurt Geiger branched out from footwear to launch an accessories collection called Everything But The Dress. As the name suggests, the range includes all the finishing touches your outfit could possibly need, from jewellery to bags and belts to hats, gloves and scarves.

'Accessories have become the driving force behind contemporary fashion,' says Kurt Geiger's creative director, Rebecca Farrar-Hockley. 'Clothing without them is like a party with no cake!'

I've been eyeing up this debut collection all season long and the good news is, with the last week of the Kurt Geiger sale upon us, there's up to 75% off.

Top of my wish list was this red perspex pouch which I snapped up for half price, reduced from £30 to £15. I love its minimal design and coloured transparency. It's a great alternative to the oversized slouchy clutch. If you're good at keeping your belongings to the bare essentials, this is for you. And the bonus is, you won't need to root around to find what you need.

The perspex pouch also comes in black, pink and blue, although only the latter two are in the sale. You can also get a matching purse with credit-card holder for £10, down from £20.

My second purchase was the Grace ring (below) for a tenner, reduced by 75% from £40. Its chunky, modern design makes for a cool, contemporary cocktail ring. It comes in a dark amber stone, too. And, if you want a bigger rock, try the Greta ring for £13 - it has a square stone as opposed to the Grace ring's rectangular one. Both are big enough not to be missed and catch the light beautifully.

Oh, and Everything But The Dress is delightfully presented. The perspex pouch is sealed in a blingy gold Jiffy envelope while the ring comes packaged in a showy cube gift box. As the finishing touches to this collection reveal, every detail counts.

  1. Love the clutch, wish i could pull it off, too cluttery in my bag!! So true what you say about detail, in times like this everything you buy should be special and attention to detail counts with everything, esp as not everyone has the cash to spend as freely now - nice when it feels like a real treat!!

    I expect you get this aaaall the live long day but would be massively greatful if you'd have a peak at my blog…first shot at it, and im loving doing it, and i love to read your snippets!!!

    Lotsv love xxxx

  4. Love this! Think I'll get it! I can't decide between the large or the small though - I don't know the dimensions! xxxx

  5. Hi Crystal,
    The large pouch measures 24 x 16 cm. However, Kurt Geiger hasn't put the measurements of the small pouch on its website. Doh! As a rough guide, the internal pockets of the small pouch are credit-card sized if that helps.
