Two great tastes in one! Oh how I love a good designer collaboration. While I am a bit over Hunter boots (they make me walk funny) I am in no way over rag & bone. In fact, of late I have been rather obsessed (just bought my third pair of their jeans). For Fall/Winter 2013, rag & bone has partnered with Hunter for an exclusive women’s rain boot collection with styles I may have to check out! Especially the shorter version…
“As English guys, we grew up being familiar with Hunter boots – I got my first pair of their wellies when I was around eight! Hunter is an extremely iconic British brand, which remains as relevant today as it did when it was founded over a century and a half ago, and we feel very proud to have the opportunity to collaborate with them. I believe the two styles we created really represent signature elements from both our brands.” – Marcus Wainwright, Co-Managing Partner, rag & bone
“Hunter may be a quintessential British brand but we also always see so many women on the streets of Manhattan wearing their boots. Not only is this testament to the brand’s global appeal, it resonated with us as we are British guys living in New York. We are really excited about this collaboration.” – David Neville, Co-Managing Partner, rag & bone
Combining their respective British heritage and adherence to the traditions of expert craftsmanship, the Hunter + rag & bone collaboration features two distinct, classic styles which elegantly balance utilitarianism with fashion-forward design. The two handcrafted boots in the capsule collection are the Hunter rag & bone Tall (equestrian-style) and the Hunter rag & bone Short (motorcycle-style). Both styles come in Black/Army Green, Black, Army Green, Burgundy and Black/Navy. The Tall boots are $295 and the short boots are $265.
