Hunter Original paid homage to the muddy British summer music festivals that made its rubber boots so famous. Here was a pretty collection full of outerwear for all meteorological events.
The set was designed to look like a giant tent, complete with guy ropes that crisscrossed the muddy catwalk. Lightweight nylon and rip-stop fabrics were used for degradé parkas and loose dresses with hoods and drawstring waists in shades of lilac, buttercup and melon. Oversize lacing appeared throughout on sleeves and on jacket fronts — or as fringe on a big red poncho.
Big eyelets looked great on pastel jean jackets made from rubber, while a spot print was made from Hunter’s own technological symbols, and sheer rubber coats looked stylish and practical worn over striped silk dresses or shorts.
