Luxury footwear maker John Lobb has opened a bespoke atelier for a limited time in New York. Opened from just September 25th through 26th, this residency transports the brand’s Parisian bespoke atelier to the heart of SoHo for the first time.
Located at 107 Grand Street, this experiential shop celebrates the individual choreography which surrounds a pair of hand-made shoes and the absolute craftsmanship present at the core of the house.
The shop follows four craftsmen of virtuosic skill taking center stage to perform the embodiment of time-honored skills during live demonstrations whilst featuring screenings of the short film Gestures, a five-act series depicting the metamorphic process of turning humble materials into objects of ultimate refinement.
Established in 1866 and famed for its finely crafted and durable designs, John Lobb operates a ready-to-wear collection, as well as bespoke and by request services. The house pays tribute to the rural upbringing of its founder, honoring its craftsmanship whilst evoking Lobb’s sense of adventure and modernity.
