The London flagship of Aimé Leon Dore is a milestone in the evolution and expansion of the brand that embraces its London location and pays homage to their New York City roots. The interior is inspired by these origins alongside the classic interiors of Saville Row tailor shops and iconic men’s outfitters including Adolf Loos’ Knize in Vienna.
Working in collaboration with New York based designer Sarita Posada, West Architecture detailed and delivered the new store on Broadwick Street in Soho. The main spaces are characterised by dark walnut panelling and fittings with a large format green Cipollino marble floor.
It offers two levels of retail with a basement lounge and café, Café Leon Dore, on the ground floor.
