Kurt Geiger is a British footwear and accessories retailer. Creative Director Rebecca Farrar-Hockley and her team of specialist shoe and accessory designers make up the creative staff of the brand at the Kurt Geiger headquarters on Britton Street, London.
Kurt Geiger has over 70 stores, a “digital global flagship”, and over 170 concessions within department stores, including Harrods and Selfridges. In 1995 Kurt Geiger introduced a men’s collection designed in London with distinctly British edge worn by actors from Benedict Cumberbatch to Daniel Radcliffe, Channing Tatum and John Boyega.
In 2011 Kurt Geiger founded Everything but the Dress and introduced accessories and a bag collection. Kurt Geiger is worn by actresses, artists and models including Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt, Beyonce, Sienna Miller, Rihanna, Cindy Crawford and Gigi Hadid. The company is named after its Austrian founder, who opened its first shop in London’s fashion capital on Bond Street in 1963, and it has been based in London ever since.
In December 2015, London-based private equity firm Cinven acquired Kurt Geiger from its previous owner, New York-based private equity firm Sycamore Partners, for 245 million.
