    Mr. Hare takes Liberty’s !!

    Mr Hare x Liberty Sneaker Installation

    Considering London is one of the undisputed catalysts of Global sneaker culture, it is incredible how few sneaker makers can actually call themselves Londoners.

    So it is with great pride and sneaker justice that Mr. Hare and Liberty, two London institutions of style, join forces to showcase the new luxury sneaker line from Mr. Hare.

    Designed by born and bred Londoner, Marc Hare and crafted to the highest standards in Italy, the home of luxury, the entire collection is showcased in it’s entirety for the first time ever in a special installation in the Liberty Men’s Lower Ground shoe lounge.

    The Monotone collection features a sumptuous high top, a lovely low top and a superb skate shoe. As with all Mr. Hare shoes, compromise is not an option, so each shoe is constructed from the finest Italian calf leathers and fully leather lined from top to toe. While other companies have re-appropriated the sneaker cult to meet a fashion end, Mr. Hare’s roots are firmly in the B-Boy tradition of straight flossing for all those who must be fresh to death at all times. Few sneakers this fresh have ever been manufactured to this quality. Numbers are very limited and runs are never ever repeated exactly the same. If you have an interest in sneakers, then you have a duty to come and see these.

    The Installation also features for the first time, the photographic campaign shot to accompany the collection by London photographer Morgan Donovan and Styled by ‘Rudeboy’ curator Harris Elliot.

    Home grown stars who are already rocking these essential home grown kicks include Meridian Dan, Aaron Ramsey, Idris Elba, Professor Green and MIA. Not to mention some overseas cats like Fab Five Freddy and Diplo.

    The launch was last night , but the installation is in place throughout November 2014.

    The Blaccessories !!

    To celebrate five years of making exquisite men’s shoes out of fine Italian leathers I decided to make some black accessories to accompany the ‘Tuttonero” collection. I figured it wasn’t too megalomaniacal to introduce some rather practical but perfectly luxurious product extensions to the brand. As you know I selfishly design everything for myself, so you can rest assured that everything here has been meticulously thought out to make my life not only more glamorous and high class, but also easier and more organised than ever before.

    The Tote

    I don’t like to carry a lot. My laptop, chargers, some documents and already I am feeling like a packhorse. So the idea of a big Man Tote is not an idea I gave much time to. The Mr. Hare Tote bag is the size of a Mac Book Pro with concertina sides in case you need to ditch a jumper in there too. There are flap compartments and zipped pockets inside, so you can safely stash valuables and have somewhere flat for documents and there is a key loop. I also made the loop handles long enough so you can carry the bag on your shoulder and stay hands free. The whole exterior is made from sumptuous black calf leather and is lined inside in hard wearing black nylon. As with everything Mr. Hare this isn’t a big statement bag, this is an awesome bag, proudly carrying the Mr. Hare double exclamation mark logo on the front.

    The Document Wallet

    I didn’t want to get into making luxury items to house specific tech items because the problem with tech items is that there is always a new one to render the last one obsolete, so de facto the luxury item too becomes obsolete. Hence I made this document file which fits everything from old fashioned papyrus tablet in A4 through to whatever tablet in its padded compartment.

    This document wallet  is an incredibly professional looking piece of administrative kit to brandish even with nothing in it.

    When I was designing “Tuttonero” I was a bit obsessed by the simple use of shape sand colours by the Bauhaus movement, so I was applying simple circles, triangles and squares into every design. I also decided to only use Black patent leather, Black calf Leather and Black suede. You can see how that simple structure manifests from the Document wallet into the Jack Johnson High Tops and on to the wallets and coin pouches below. High minded design principles? Or just social commentary on all those Playas whose kicks don’t match they cash !!

    The Money Folders

    Screen Shot 2014-09-15 at 11.51.50

    This is the tri-fold. It has three sections. It is like a Porsche Panamera. It is obviously fast and from a house with flossing pedigree but it has an extra bit attached for when you are being less fast and less flossy. Loose change is a part of everyday life and the lack of a specific place to put it usually leads to the loss of it or the ruination of a fine trouser line. With the Tri-fold you can stash it until you get to somewhere more suitable to deposit it. There is also ample room for credit, business, store and travel cards, cash and receipts. Fully loaded it still folds into a slim profile, all black, painted edged assassin of a wallet.

    The Bi-Fold

    This is the Bi-Fold which assumes a changeless world, where cash is flat and the future is plastic. More Carrera than the Panamera Trifold. It’s a cash Coupé.

    Finally, in the moneyfolder range, we have the Mr. Hare Evening wallet. That moment when you are set to hit the town with a plus one on every important guestlist, but your wallet wants to bring, transaction records, discount at Harvey Nichols and John Lewis and Dry cleaning tickets to the parteh !! Simply transfer your cards and cash to the night wallet and rock up to the club lighter than Mo Farah !!

    The Coin Pouches

    Back to the subject of change. These coin pouches are the Mr. Hare equivalent of a little Swiss deposit account kept safely in the bottom of your bag. Luxurious, Tactile and Prudential. Not the kind of words Tom Ford uses but we are very different guys. You will remember my Bauhaus fixation this season, so here it is taken down to it’s most base form as a method of turning jingly jangly, heavy, bacteriologically questionable, nuisance change into a pure expression of shape and form.

    Thank you for taking the time to check out the Blaccessories. If you have found this discourse useful then the actual products which you can see more of here, will probably blow your mind.
