When David Mallett opened his first salon outside of Paris at The Webster New York in fall 2018, he didn’t want it to be just an imitation of his flagship near Place des Victoires. “Every single thing we brought from Paris,” says Mallett, pointing to the lamps, the chairs, the mirrors and even the books on the 15-foot marble table that were bought a year and a half ago and were left to sit in the Paris salon for months on end.

The fifth floor, 1,600 square-foot salon’s design, over seen by architect Charles Zana, was meant to have the vibe of Mallett’s Parisian apartment, an open sunlit space with eight Saarinen Tulip chairs situated in front of eight custom mirrors.

In addition to importing all of the décor, Mallett also imported much of his staff. Key colorists and stylists from his French team, including Giorgio, Anthony Deliperi and Rishi Jokhoo, spend one or two weeks per month in New York, as does the owner.

“It was extremely ambitious bringing all these people in and all these objects over, but there was no other way to do it. It’s me being meticulous and a little obsessed.”

– David Mallett

Attention to detail extends to almost every aspect of Mallett’s aesthetic philosophy, although the goal of his exactitude is achieving a look of utter nonchalance, whether via his perfectly rumpled three-piece suits and Church’s loafers with no socks, his taste for personal yet impeccable décor or his signature “undone” French girl hairdos. As he says, “I don’t like the do, I like the un-do.” He’s not the only one. Mallett’s client list includes Lea Seydoux, Natacha Ramsay-Levi, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Phoebe Philo, Clare Waight Keller and, of course, Laure Heriard Dubreuil.

“I would never have come to New York if it hadn’t been for Laure,” says Mallett, who was introduced through mutual friends in Paris. “She made everything so easy and held my hand and she’s French. She understood the complexities of bringing a French team here and their demands.”

Mallet is actually Australian, born in Fremantle, but has been living in Paris for 33 years. He opened his first salon in an 18th century hotel particulier in 2003, and his second at the hotel Ritz Paris in 2016. In 2007, he launched his signature haircare line, entirely made in France. It is available at The Webster New York.
