Fashion shoe retailer Le Bunny Bleu is to open a 935 sq ft store in the Westfield Stratford shopping centre, its first in the UK. Cushman & Wakefield is its sole UK adviser.

Le Bunny Bleu combines a vintage European style with New York?s modern design to create innovative and comfortable women?s flat shoes in vibrant colours. Le Bunny Bleu launched in New York in 2009 and initially entered the dynamic Far East market. It started with five stores and currently has 78 stores in Korea, China and Japan. Along with its retail stores, Le Bunny Bleu has partnerships with the biggest wholesale shoes distributors in Asia.

Marian Rebro, chief executive officer of Askomi, Le Bunny Bleu's parent company, said, "We have been looking to enter the UK market for a while and we feel that we are now ready on all fronts. We have ambitious plans for the UK and I believe we can become a leading trend setter for women's flat shoes in Europe, as we have done in the Far East."

Mark Barrett, associate in the cross-border retail team of Cushman & Wakefield, said, "Le Bunny Bleu has grown aggressively in the two years since its origin. Following its success in East Asia it is now looking to expand its presence in the UK and North America and is currently looking for locations for four more London stores around 800-1000 sq ft."
