Duke & Dexter launch first UK store

Handmade loafer brand Duke & Dexter has launched its first UK flagship store at London’s Seven Dials.

The shop at 16 Earlham Street specialises in premium loafers for men. Designed by both an in-house team and Dreambox, the store features a lounge area and coffee bar as well as a dedicated space where customers can create their own unique and embossed shoes.

Duke & Dexter founder Archie Hewlett said: “Our heritage is the basis for the success of our brand and Seven Dials as a location mirrored our ethos perfectly. We are amongst great international brands and are thrilled to be making our debut here on Earlham Street in the heart of London’s West End.”

With the shoes designed in London and handcrafted in Sheffield, Duke & Dexter was founded in 2014 and its shoes are stocked by retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and Liberty and also in over 100 countries worldwide. The shoes have a celebrity following including the likes of Justin Timberlake, Ryan Reynolds, Eddie Redmayne, Poppy Delevingne, Tinie Tempah and Tyson Beckford.

Sam Bain-Mollison, head of group retail strategy and leasing at Shaftesbury, added: “Earlham Street features a number of flagship stores for emerging menswear fashion brands alongside other international retailers. Duke & Dexter is a really exciting brand and we are so pleased to be able to launch their first UK store in Seven Dials, building on our truly unique retail offer in London.”

Duke & Dexter join recent international debuts on Earlham Street from male beauty retailer BEAST and men’s sportswear brand Ron Dorff.
