108 Mount Street
The only boutique of Italian shoe designer Gianvito Rossi in the UK, and just one of nine worldwide, can be found at 108 Mount Street. The sky high, glitzy footwear brand opened its doors here in 2014, offering show-stopping shoes for ladies who traverse the capital exclusively by car.
The son of storied cordwainer Sergio Rossi, expert craftsmanship and killer designs are in Gianvito’s blood and, 10 years on from launching his own label, he has earned his own place in the fashion hall of fame. He grew a reputation for using exquisite leather, suede and calf hair materials, particularly on pointed pumps, and is known for paying careful attention to fit and comfort as much as the sex appeal of his shoes. Pair this with inviting and attentive customer service and it’s unlikely you’ll try something on and not take it home with you here.
Every pair of shoes purchased at the store are entitled to their After Care Service, repaired and refurbished to the original specifications by their dedicated technicians. Your shoes will be picked up from your home, workplace, or another convenient location and handled by their specialists to ensure your shoes last a lifetime. Refurbishment includes a complete sole and heel replacement, a new insole, and polish. They will be returned to you in a new box with a new shoe bags.
The boutique is open Monday to Saturday, leaving Sundays free for you to show off your new heels around town.
The arched store front, perfectly formed in pink Doulton terracotta in a Gothic style, offers an enticing peek into the intimate, 400 square-feet space. The brand entrusted Milanese interior designers Studio Urquiola to transform the historical British building into a little taste of their Italian heritage. Formerly a pharmacy in the 19th century, they have kept much of the original furniture and wooden apothecary cabinets, making it far from a cookie-cutter replica of other branches.
