Following X, his 10th season anniversary collection of greatest hits, British shoemaker Marc Hare has started afresh. "Last time was a retrospective but now I've scrapped everything and started again," he said. As ever, a Mr Hare collection features "the essential shoes that every man needs," from monk straps and brogues to Chelsea boots, skater shoes and platformed sneakers — all in heavy duty black leather save a trio of moccasins in softer metallic and pearlized finishes.
The presentation was staged in Elms Lesters, an old scenery painting building in Soho, complete with a phalanx of models on elevated platforms and soundtracked by an orchestrial performance of a composition by Libertines drummer, Gary Powell.
