When you think of the household name, “Hunter”, you think of the trendy, cool and practical rubber rain boot company, but that’s not all! This past Saturday, newly appointed Creative Director, Alasdhair Willis debuted The Hunter Original Autumn/ Winter collection at London Fashion Week! Thriving from their English heritage, Willis is giving us more options to look practical but still chic and is prepping us for the worst storms of the century! With sensible clean lines, the collection showed big pockets, reinforced double zippers, a classic anorak, military jackets and obviously waterproof fabrics! The color palette was fresh with deep greens and purples, yellows and reds.
Willis took the collection one step further and brought his sensible style to a stunning runway made of water, woodlands and dare I say, a magic show? Dynamo, the great British magician, performed his matrix levitation, and made himself and eight of the models disappear during the finale! I’m excited to see what else Willis has up his sleeve! What’s your favorite look?
