Marc Hare is a name rarely used other than by his mother or bank manager. Mr Hare – as he is more aptly known – is the man behind the much-lauded Mr Hare shoe brand. For 2011, Mr Hare is taking on his first ever collaboration, launching a ten-style capsule collection with men’s fashion powerhouse Topman.
The playful designer, whose ‘black shoe’ brand went from idea conception to shop floor at Dover Street Market in under a year, is now set to follow in the footsteps of Oliver Spencer with the exclusive collection. Its ties with Topman’s rock ‘n’ roll AAA range are evident with alligator print on the boots, a tiger-stripe cutout on the derby’s and the patent, croc and suede on the sneakers.
The collection will rock up in two parts – the first at the end of August with the second arriving at the end of October both online and at the stores international flagships.
