Showroom Next Door SS11: Mr Hare

Ain't No App. For That. Mr Hare SS11

Oh Mr. Hare. The brand has been close to our hearts the moment we heard that our favourite shoeist was launching his obsession. The label was first conceived at a roadside tapas bar in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Andalucia, Spain on July 23rd 2008. Marc Hare looked at the woven leather shoes of the old gentleman sat next to him and thought his shoes could be brilliant with a few tweaks, but who could he get to make them. Five minutes later, Mr. Hare the brand was conceived and it took just three hundred and sixty days to go from idea conception to the shop floor at Dover Street Market. Since then, the brand has gone from strength to strength and deservedly so. His leather creations can now be found across the world in an expanding selection of fine retail outlets, from Selfridges to Colette to Beams. In his continued quest to dominant the world of shoes, Mr Hare has unveiled his latest collection, for SS11 entitled Ain't No App. For That. Mr Hare continues to push and explore the boundaries of footwear with spectacular effect. The collection showcases shapes and materials that I've never come across before. I will of course feature the collection in some detail in the coming weeks (not least after MAN day) but my feet and heart have been twitching to share these images from the Showroom and now the wait is over.

Burroughs. Hare has added to his literary influences.
The studs will act as a badge of individuality in the office and beyond.

Camus in eel.

Onyx stud loafer. Hare experiments with this shape in a few models but this has to be my favourite.

Burn my house, steal my car, drain my liquor from an old fruit jar, do anything that you want to do but uh-uh honey, lay off them shoes... King Tubby Specials using ostrich. Just beautiful. My feet need these.

Now, that is enough shoe porn for one day. Do not despair though, Mr Hare's Aint No App. For That will continue on its tour of the London Fashion Week circuit at the Fashion East Menswear Installations. Tune in later this week for a closer look at the creations of our favourite shoe aficionado.

I have always loved Mr. Hare's literary references like this season's Genet boot!

Anyways, you should really end up with those shoes in ostrich. And I really am considering the Burroughs!
