LONDON — It wasn’t William Sofield’s expertise at designing retail environments that got him hired to work on Belstaff’s new global flagship in London. Although, with feathers from Tom Ford, Gucci and Bottega Veneta in his cap, his credentials are impressive. No, it was for Studio Sofield’s residential portfolio.
“It’s called Belstaff House because this is our home,” said Harry Slatkin, Belstaff’s chief executive officer and vice chairman. “When you visit us, I want you to feel as if you are entering our home, a place that you could actually visit as opposed to shop. I’d rather you come in to visit us first and shop as a second thought.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
