Malone Souliers: House for a Shoe Collector | LFW AW24

Malone Souliers stands as a beacon among modern, highly esteemed footwear brands, upholding the honourable tradition of time-rich Italian craftsmanship. The label, founded in 2014, stands proud in creating pieces that last for decades, focusing on timeless style, a perfect fit and inventive silhouettes. In keeping with their ethos, Malone Souliers practices a zero-waste design approach and continue to be a pioneer in re-imagining the true definition of what makes something ‘classic ‘.

With an international footprint that has expanded over the years, the brand continues to blaze trails within the fashion world, boasting collaborations with Roksanda and S.S Daley. Notably, the brand has also entered exclusive partnerships with popular Netflix shows, Emily in Paris and Bridgerton.

The Autumn Winter 2024 collection, entitled “House for a Shoe Collector” unfolds within a former furniture factory on Tottenham Court Road, London – a large, naturally illuminating open space, paying homage to the unconventional materials used by Italian architect Gae Aulenti’s ‘art collectors house’. Bustling guests are ushered in batches up glass door elevators to be welcomed to refreshments and live musical entertainment, all while navigating around artfully arranged installations. Patent oxblood textures appear to be a favourable reference within the Presentation, appearing in all accessories. Not only that, but a whimsical, floral walk-way leads guests to a deep red photo studio backdrop, showcasing their eveningwear pieces.

Celebrating Italian couture influences, the collection features dramatic marabou feathery pom poms, geometric crystals and velvet ribbons adorning silky ballet flats. The Cristi mule explores material play by combining juxtaposing fabrics such as croc-embossed leather or patent with mesh.

Commenting on the collection, Malone Souliers’ Co-Creative Directors explain, “Italian craftsmanship is intrinsic to the heritage of Malone Souliers. Every trip to Italy is a design pilgrimage and the AW24 collection is a love letter to the radical influence of the country’s unparalleled aesthetic, which we have long and deeply admired.”

Launching in June 2024, the Malone Souliers AW24 collection will be available online at and Harrods concession in Shoe Heaven.
