With its revolutionary concept of foldable shoes, Cocorose London has been the go-to footwear designer for the modern, multi-tasking woman who parties as hard as she works.
Founder, Janan Leo shares some highlights of the last twelve months...
2015 was a glorious year for Cocorose London, filled with excitement and pride, from launching our industry-first new designs to hosting our pop up shops to being invited to visit the Milan Expo with Prime Minister David Cameron.
THE MILAN EXPO WITH PM DAVID CAMERON
Last summer, I was invited to join Prime Minister David Cameron on a special trip to the Milan Expo to celebrate UK National Day and support entrepreneurship in Britain. On arrival at the British Pavilion, David Cameron introduced us to Italy's PM, Matteo Renzi and the day then concluded with The Queen's Birthday Party Reception. All in all, this was an incredible experience for me personally, and so humbling and wonderful to celebrate Cocorose London's recognition and achievements over the years.
POP UP SHOPS
We hosted two pop up shops last summer, in London's Farringdon and Chelsea areas, to showcase our new designs and meet our wonderful Cocorosers. We have just taken part in a new pop up in Chelsea this spring, called Summer Box, which showcases an edited collection of directional brands in women's and children's clothing, accessories, swimwear and homeware. Find us at 340 Kings Road, London, SW3 5UR until 5th June 2016.
We love summer in London and we think we've captured the spirit of it beautifully in our video that we shot last summer. From Regents Park to Westminster to Hampstead Heath, we love our video and the nostalgia it brings us of long summer days and nights in the city. Watch it now...
OUR NEW ROYAL BALLET BAG COLLECTION
Created in association with The Royal Ballet, our debut collection of leather and canvas tote bags launched last autumn and feature images from The Royal Ballet archives. These beautiful images each tell a story and are digitally printed onto our designs, reflecting the heritage of The Royal Ballet in a contemporary form, and creating a capsule collection that is truly unique.
OUR INDUSTRY-FIRST DESIGNS
We're passionate about creating shoes with a remarkable difference and continuously push the boundaries of design to create innovative, new styles to excite and delight our customers. Thoughtfully designed and crafted for life on-the-go, we are renowned for our revolutionary concept of shoes that fold. In line with the sports-luxe trend, we launched our industry-first white soled shoes on our foldable slip-on and sneaker styles. Today, our collection includes ballerinas, loafers, slip-ons, sandals, trainers and boots - all fully flexible and foldable - ensuring our shoes are considerately designed for smart, on-the-go lifestyles.
