Story

Mungo & Maud was created at the home of Michael and Nicola Sacher whilst they were struggling to find products for their new English Setter ‘George’... nothing on the market seemed to fit with their aesthetic and lifestyle. This sparked the idea… they took a deep breath, left their existing careers and began a lengthy process of research and development.

Mungo & Maud opened its doors at 79 Elizabeth Street on 05.05.05 at 5pm.

The continued success of Mungo & Maud reflects the constant creative inventiveness and business initiative of its owners. Having grown up as part of a large family retail business, Michael Sacher joined forces with his wife and Creative Director, Nicola Sacher, whose extensive knowledge of and experience in design and advertising has informed the creative strategy for the brand. Michael acts as Chief Executive and Finance Director.

Concessions and Pop-ups

Mungo & Maud has been featured in many international luxury department stores, including Harrods where the brand had a permanent concession for more than ten years. Translating the company’s unique brand identity from the store on Elizabeth Street into a department store environment proved a success. The brand has frequently been invited to open corners and pop-ups in a variety of stores, such as: Isetan’s Shinjuku (Tokyo); Merci in Paris; Saks Fifth Avenue and Jelmoli in Zürich, to name a few.

E-Commerce

At the outset, the intention was to create a brand with a clearly differentiated identity and worldwide potential. Whilst the Mungo & Maud flagship store lies within the heart of London’s village scene in Belgravia, elements of the brand have been translated creatively into the digital space to convey the same feeling and experience of being in a physical store.

The webstore, mungoandmaud.com, serves a worldwide customer base from fulfilment houses located in the UK and the USA.

Playing with Animation

In love with Japan and passionate about the arts, Nicola Sacher set out to write and produce a series of hand-drawn animated short films with the aim of sharing Mungo & Maud’s world for Christmas. After searching for an animator with an artistic and naive sense, she found a Japanese film-maker whose hand-drawn style and intelligence immediately drew her in.

‘The Dog Sleigh’

Playing with a storybook tale, the short film features a little Schnauzer dressed in the brand’s iconic Beetle coat. Despondent at first, trying to seek out the perfect Christmas gifts to fill up his sleigh, he then discovers Mungo & Maud as, to his delight, the toys from the store leap out to join him.

‘The Enchanted Forest’

The story follows a little Maltese as he wanders through an enchanted forest. We see his old jumper snag on a branch, and watch it gradually unravel to leave him shivering in the cold. At this moment, a mysterious door in a tree, marked with the number 79, magically opens... (a little wink to the flagship store at 79 Elizabeth Street, London) inside, an elderly cat is knitting the new Mungo & Maud pullover of the season which she generously donates to the shivering dog. The little dog joyfully continues his journey and finally celebrates Christmas with his Mungo & Maud friends.

Philosophy

Mungo & Maud is a place for those who share a love of dogs and cats or who know those who do...

Where those who notice the smallest details, who are drawn to style, a refined colour palette and who admire classical design with a twist... can find a piece for their most loyal friend.
