Crafting Joseph Cheaney’s new fashion-forward brand image

Celebrating the artful craft of luxury shoemaking

Quintessential British shoemaker Joseph Cheaney has been making unique fine footwear for five generations. We designed their award-winning retail identity, showcased in the three very distinct London neighbourhoods in Jermyn Street, Covent Garden and Coal Drops Yard.

Each brand space shines a light on the art and craft that goes into luxury shoemaking, whilst integrating with its local setting and moving away from the muddy mahogany of traditional craft shops and shoe retail interior design. Creating a contemporary, fashion-forward brand experience design with a creative abstraction of craftsmanship. The result? A fresh take on traditional retail design, one which puts their brand positioning centre-stage and re-invigorates desire amongst modern shoppers, from both the UK and across the world.

Award winning retail interior design: shoe collections are showcased within a structure inspired by a Pullman carriage and the distinct architecture of Coal Drops Yard.
Artful brand storytelling: the concept store design at Coal Drops Yard elevates their craft with a central cutting table featuring cut-out silhouettes of the makers tools.
Everyone on board: our customer experience design concept utilises a space within a space, making you feel like you’re standing inside a train carriage.

Working with Checkland Kindleysides we have achieved a statement making concept that redefines the image of our brand.

Authentic brand communications design: we photographed the original oil portraits of Joseph Cheaney and his son, and created an exploded shoe display to use as artworks in-store.
Slow fashion retail concept: Joseph Cheaney always produce consciously by purveying slow-fashion proposition that offers quality, longevity and sustainable sourcing.
