New Bond Street is home to two stores from family-owned British footwear and handbag specialists Russell & Bromley. You’ll find one at number 24-25 and another located at 109 – 110, so you’ll always find what you’re looking for. The brand has had a store on the street since 1947, though the founding of the company goes all the way back to 1873. It was born out of a marriage between a shoemaker and the daughter of his employer which led to the start of a new business. It’s been a match made in heaven for almost 150 years now.
The premium brand specialises in elegant leather shoes with a fashionable twist designed in the UK and made in Italy. You can also expect to find a selection of men’s leather, suede and woven belts and women’s bags ranging from evening clutches to everyday work totes and rucksacks. Speak to a member of staff at the store to sign up for their loyalty scheme which rewards you with money to spend in store when you collect points on each purchase. Russell & Bromley shoes are available exclusively at their own-brand stores so take advantage of this opportunity to pick up a pair you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
Kate Middleton has championed the brand in recent years, even wearing a pair to the christening of her son Prince George, as has Meghan Markle. The brand is a perfect fit for the Duchesses in their royal duty to support British fashion while looking stylish and appropriate for any occasion.
