Meet the young entrepreneur and designer duo behind loafer empire Baudoin & Lange, housed in Mayfair’s iconic Burlington Arcade
Powerhouse duo Allan Baudoin (32) and Bo van Langeveld (30) are the brains behind Baudoin & Lange – the famed British loafer manufacturer housed in the jewel of Mayfair, Burlington Arcade, that seamlessly fuse style with the most incredible comfort.
Founded in 2016, Baudoin & Lange reflects the entrepreneurial and young spirit of its co-founders. The brand has grown organically in a very short period of time, and successfully filled a gap in a competitive market at a time where social behaviours were changing. As a consequence, Baudoin & Lange quickly gained global recognition amongst fashion designers, celebrities, artists and tastemakers.
Their category-defining ‘Sagan’ loafers have been a major hit worldwide and continues to grow its cult-following. By working directly with producers and manufacturers, Baudoin & Lange select and source the very best leathers and suedes from various parts of Europe, tapping into the craftsmanship and materials for which that country is renowned, to produce sustainably with minimum wastage. Knowledge is handed down from one generation of shoemaker to the next to continuously create forward-thinking new collections.
Combining bespoke technical creativity with years of advanced research and the commitment to constantly innovate with time, Baudoin & Lange have achieved a new meaning of comfort – that of a confident globetrotter who encapsulates style and sophistication in everything they do. Whilst operating out of the capital, Baudoin & Lange boasts a style oozing from a Parisian aesthetic, and maintains a European sensibility to all of its products.
This summer, the coveted label launches an array of news including: the launch of a new premium range of Chelsea Boots – The Rover Collection – the label’s most extreme outdoor shoe to date, with the collection name symbolising the spirit of adventure and wandering landscapes at ease; and the launch of its first Spring Summer collection on the globally renowned luxury shopping portal Net-a-Porter.
Baudoin & Lange seeks to amplify ‘well-living’ worldwide, through the comforting thoughtfulness integrated in every product made. The brand is a vehicle for the development of a different kind of luxury; one that is inspired by the pillars of wellbeing, culture and beauty. Baudoin & Lange is excited to welcome shoppers to the boutique within the iconic Burlington Arcade, to view the new coveted collections of the season.
