Harvey Nichols unveils the ‘Winfrey’ shoe from Malone Soulless as the global exclusive stockist
The Malone Souliers limited-edition Winfrey will be available exclusively at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge and Manchester from July 2017. Price £495.
Luxury retailer Harvey Nichols will launch the limited edition Winfrey shoe from Malone Souliers’ AW17 collection as the exclusive global stockist in July 2017. With only 16 pieces available, the Winfrey will be sold within the Designer Shoes destination at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge and Manchester. The launch follows its debut at London Fashion Week when Malone Souliers Founder and Creative Director, Mary-Alice Malone, handcrafted the new style from scratch; the live presentation showcased the artisan techniques used to develop her footwear collection outlining the exceptional work and level of detail that goes into each of her designs.
The silhouette was meticulously hand-cut in nappa leather, hand lasted and then hand painted using a sky blue and indigo palette that offers a colour pop against the ruby red velvet detail. The distinctive image is an expression of Mary-Alice’s creative vision, combining abstraction with reality and uses the idea of a face to portray a mirror of the designer’s own mind.
Tina Lamb, Buying Manager Shoes & Accessories, Harvey Nichols said: “Harvey Nichols is delighted to be the global exclusive stockist of the limited edition Winfrey style from Malone Souliers’ AW17 collection. The Malone Souliers offering resonates so well with the Harvey Nichols customer and I’m excited for the Winfrey shoe to hit our stores this summer. The story behind the shoes with it being created live during the London Fashion week presentation makes this additionally special.”
Roy Luwolt, Founder & Managing Director, Malone Soulless said: “We are extremely excited to be launching the limited-edition Winfrey exclusivity with Harvey Nichols, due to the Winfrey debuting at LFW and Harvey Nichols being renowned as one of the UK’s premier luxury fashion retailers. The creation of the Winfrey, excitable to me, though most unusually public and exclusively exposing to my partner, Mary-Alice Malone, brings to the foray of our ethos and priority as a luxury business the unadulterated heritage of craftsmanship.”
