Kwanpen

Founded in 1938 by the late Craftsman Kwan Pen Seng, KWANPEN started as a humble backyard workshop, designing and crafting leather goods for British aristocrats and servicemen in Colonial Singapore.

KWANPEN, namesake of its founder, is now a luxury fashion brand specialising in the sustainable use of crocodile and alligator skin in handbags and accessories. KWANPEN can be found in countries across the EU and Asia with innovative crafting and leather knowledge unparalleled in the crocodile skin business.

Crockett & Jones

A 5th generation family-run business, Crockett & Jones has been making shoes and boots for men since 1879. Each pair is made by hand using the finest leathers at its Grade II listed factory in Northampton.

Known for classic styles that stand the test of time, its shoes have graced the feet of Daniel Craig as James Bond, Prince Charles, and countless other stylish men across the globe.

The Burlington Arcade store opened in 1995, and offers the opportunity for each client to have their foot measurements taken by Crockett & Jones’ expert staff before test fitting their chosen shoes. Special orders and repairs are also available.

Manolo Blahnik Women’s

Manolo Blahnik’s name has been synonymous with luxury footwear since it was established in 1970. His longtime fans count tastemakers from Rihanna to Anna Wintour. The brand was even immortalised on screen when Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw was mugged at gunpoint for her heels.

Manolo Blahnik remains a family business today, with the eponymous designer as Creative Director and Chairman and niece Kristina Hulsebus Blahnik as CEO. Manolo still sketches every shoe himself and works with artisans in Italy to bring each collection to fruition. In addition to more than 150 new creations each season are permanent classics including the Hangisi, BB and Chaos styles.

In July 2018 a dedicated men’s store opened alongside the women’s boutique in the Burlington Arcade.

Baudoin and Lange

With a style that originates in a Parisian aesthetic, Baudoin & Lange, while operating out of London, maintains a European sensibility. Blending time-honoured tradition of English shoemaking with the nonchalant spirit of the French; Baudoin & Lange footwear withstand the demands of modern life, while simultaneously promoting effortlessness, versatility and comfort.

Church’s Footwear

Known for its classic men’s Oxfords, Monk Straps and boots, Church’s is the footwear of choice for well-dressed men across the globe. Established in the shoemaking stronghold of Northampton in 1873, it was the first footwear company to offer half-sizes and to create different shoes for the left and right foot.

Owned by the Prada Group since 1999, Church’s has since launched sneakers, slippers and a highly regarded women’s collection. All Church’s shoes continue to be manufactured in Northampton, and each pair takes eight-to-ten weeks to make.

Shoe Shine Service

Appropriately located outside Church’s, shoe shine specialist Romi Topi has been polishing shoes for the good and the great of Mayfair since 2001.

Topi’s process involves first cleaning the leather, then applying a leather dye around the edges of the soles and heels. This is followed by a leather lotion, followed by a polish and final buff. He insists that by taking care of your footwear in this way, they will both look better and last longer.
