Cole Haan in Soho

Cole Haan has taken up residence in SoHo (New York, US) since Fall 2010 with a lab-concept boutique designed by Roman and Williams to fuse Cole Haan’s past with present, showcasing the brand’s premium craftsmanship and modern perspective. Unlike any other Cole Haan location in New York, the 160 m2 SoHo selling floor doesn’t feel anything like your typical retail space. This space is where the Cole Haan design studio meets an inviting shopping lounge experience. Andre Leon Talley would be proud to call this his refined urban salon. It’s not like we haven’t said we’d live in one of our favorite stores before, but this time we couldn’t be more serious.

The Cole Haan SoHo locale is where we’ll be flocking to for our next, much needed retail therapy appointment. The large, custom-designed ottoman smacked in the center of the room is plush and comforting, while the metal cabinets and steel and oak shelving lined with the latest and best pieces from Cole Haan’s array of bags, shoes, outwear, and other accessories make it impossible for anyone who walks in to just pick up what they want and go. Roman and Williams, the brilliant minds behind the design of The Ace Hotel, have constructed a layout and design that adds even more to the pleasures of Soho, and is in itself a welcoming, relaxing experience that sets you at ease from the second you walk in the door.
