French Sole furthers expansion in Asia

Dec 10, 2013


Women’s footwear brand French Sole is to open new standalone stores in Asia.

Having opened its first concession in China at Galeries Lafayette in Beijing, French Sole now plans standalone stores in Beijing and Shanghai.

Founded in 1989 in London, French Sole positions itself as ‘the world’s leading purveyor of designer classic ballet flats and luxurious flat footwear’.

French Sole by Jane Winkworth currently has four London standalone stores – in Mayfair, Marylebone, King’s Rd and Knightsbridge. Two new stores are planned for the capital and another two in northern England.

“We are looking seriously at the Trafford Centre in Manchester, the Victoria Quarter in Leeds, Canary Wharf, Covent Garden and Oxford. We are about to sign contracts on one (store), with a second following very close behind,” said Winkworth.
