Luxury fashion brand J.Mendel, known for its red carpet gowns, has collaborated withwellington boot brand Hunter to create a capsule collection of rubber rain boots.
Hunter Boot, which has previous teamed up with Jimmy Choo, has gone high-end again with a limited-edition capsule line of three styles of wellington boots designed by J.Mendel that are exclusive to customers in North America.
The concept of the collection is to showcase the look and feel of J.Mendel’s “classic designs” with the “timeless functionality” of Hunter Boot. There are three styles, the first is a modified design of the iconic Hunter Boot, which is available in either black or white rubber, and a shorter black motorcycle version of the boot, and each features a signature gold J. Mendel ankle buckle and luxurious trim detailing.
Susan Sokol, President and COO of J. Mendel explained: "Hunter Boot, like J. Mendel, is a brand that combines a strong European heritage and reputation for quality with modern-day relevance. We are therefore delighted to be part of this collaboration, and thought it would be a fun, innovative way of showcasing the expertise that J. Mendel is known for."
Wendy Svarre, CEO of Hunter Boot North America, added: "As the luxury boot among wellies, it's only natural for Hunter to work with J. Mendel, bringing together high fashion and function in an exciting new way."
