Project: Boden

Design: Dalziel & Pow
Opening date: November 2017
Store size: 427 sq m

Mail order and online clothing retailer, Boden has opened its first physical store, located in Duke of York Square on King's Road, London. The concept invites customers to shop ‘at home’ with Boden in a Georgian house setting bursting with an eccentric British vibe, inspired by Johnnie Boden’s unique style and personality. Duke of York Square is an elegant and historic address for Boden’s bricks-and-mortar debut, placing an aspirational target audience on its doorstep.


'The launch of any established online brand into physical space is a challenge; a challenge to represent the brand in a way it hasn’t needed to consider since its inception. At Boden that required us to get closer to the brand essence than is normally possible, to truly reflect it in every choice of material, every nuance of the experience. In this store, Boden creates its own home from home – the result is a subtle and elegant interpretation that gives the brand a platform for future growth,' says David Dalziel, creative director at Dalziel & Pow, behind the store design.


Found furniture brings an authentic domestic feel, together with hand-painted finishes and dark wooden flooring. Wit and humour are fed into the space through communications, joined by cheeky pops of colour, engaging lifestyle imagery and elements of surprise.


With two entrances at either end, shoppers are enticed into individual rooms that gradually reveal Boden’s bold, vibrant collection in manageable easy-to-navigate segments. A feature staircase in the centre of the store separates the two floors; Women’s, Accessories and Footwear are on the ground, and Mini and Baby Boden on the lower ground.


The store's lift features a surprise feature – audio with owner Johnnie Boden’s voice has been specially designed to facilitate the journey that, coupled with the store’s unique fragrance, adds to the character and charm of the space.
