LFW Fall 2014 :: Hunter Original

Hunter, the heritage English rubber boot company, unveiled its first-ever clothing collection, Hunter Original at London Fashion Week on Saturday. With 160 years of traction under its soles and new creative director Alasdhair Willis holding the reins, the brand made quite a splash on the runway.

Inspired by ‘expeditions into the final frontiers of the deep sea and outer space’, Willis showcased outerwear constructed out of technical fabrics like neoprene, vulcanized rubber and high-tech fleece. Models stomped their way down the water-filled runway in waterproof trench coats, rubber ponchos, shiny puffer jackets, fleece jackets, and knit sweaters topped off with stylish balaclavas and beanies. The models splashed the front row as they marched through the water in Hunter’s newest welly designs – a heeled rubber boot and a Chelsea boot for men.

If you missed it, take a peek at my favourite looks from the collection:
