Malone Souliers opens first UK store
Luxury footwear label Malone Souliers has opened its first ever in the brick and mortar store in the UK, located at 19 Mount Street in London.
The new flagship store is split over two levels, with its 977-square-foot ground floor space and 653-square-foot basement featuring the brand’s design codes from curved walls which reference the form of the Maureen mule to shelving inspired by the brand’s signature cross-straps.
Offering men's and women's shoes, the store's staff members will be trained by cordwainers so that they have a deep, technical understanding of how the shoes are made, fitted, and maintained. Malone Souliers will also offer bespoke services such as the newly launched Made-To-Order service, which allow its customers to create a unique pair of shoes of their own design.
The store will also become a hub for the Malone Souliers community in London, offering a calendar of talks, exhibits, and workshops that explore founder Mary Alice Malone’s many inspirations.
Mary Alice Malone, Creative Director and Founder of Malone Souliers, said: "It’s always a pleasure to see customers getting up close with our shoes and experiencing what makes them special. With this in mind, I wanted to offer up a space in London that sparks creativity, thought and joy. The flagship also provides something new for our community: the opportunity to get together in person and share ideas and inspirations.
"I hope that the store will become a new meeting point and social hub for our friends and family, from our most loyal customers to those who are discovering Malone Souliers for the first time."
