Mr Hare & Mr Start
I think it’s fair to say Mr. Hare and his shoes are riding the crest of a wave that has been building a steady stream of momentum over the last couple of years.
The dreadlocked, gentle giant Marc Hare has been causing a stir in fashion circles in recent times and his S/S’14 collection does nothing to dispel the myth; there was a fine blend of traditional colours – including the quintessential tan brogues and black tassle loafers – alongside the more adventurous summer palettes which included sumptuous yellows, aqua and greens which all combined to create a collection that kept faith with the esteemed values of traditional cobblers while adding a kaleidoscope of colour that was very much in the mould of Mr. Hare and this wonderful new collection.
Alongside the Mr. Hare collection sat the aptly named Mr. Start. Simple block colours and elegant tailoring were very much the order of the day with blazers, shirts and tailored shorts dominating the small collection. I really wish I could wax lyrical about the clothes on show but for me this was safe and simple and while I can appreciate its relevance to classic menswear, it left me flat and uninspired.
