Italian footwear label Giuseppe Zanotti is opening a flagship store in Mayfair this autumn.
The new outlet will occupy a three-storey Grade II-listed building on Conduit Street that used to be a Donna Karan store.
The 2300 square feet shop will stock men’s and women’s footwear, handbags, jewellery and a dedicated bridal section.
Giuseppe Zanotti also plans to stock his Giuseppe Junior range, a children’s footwear label that launched last month.
The brand – which already has stores on Sloane Street and Lowndes Street and sells its goods in Harrods and Selfridges – will retain the Georgian building’s large bay window and garden space at the rear, which will be open to customers.
The new Mayfair store’s interior will feature a minimalist design with polished white marble flooring and walls decorated with white and grey marble and brass panels.
“Our two existing London stores have proved to be a strong success in the past decade, exceeding our expectations and reinforcing our view about the potential of our brand in the UK,” says Zanotti.
“The opening of our new flagship in London, a city at the heart of fashion as well as being a global tourist destination, is an exciting development in our brand’s European growth.”
Zanotti started out in the shoe design business by working for Christian Dior, Roberto Cavalli, Missoni and Vera Wang. He set up his label in 1993 and has become a favourite among stars such as Jennifer Lopez and Kylie Minogue, who are keen to make a style statement in the designer’s vertiginous heels that feature his signature beaded, cutout and studded detailing.
