French fashion house KENZOteams up with British heritage brand Hunter for a collaborative collection, inspired by Artistic Director Nigo’s love for England and the brand’s Fall Winter 2023 season. The collection pays homage to the Ivy League spirit while blending East and West aesthetics.
The KENZO x Hunter capsule collection includes high and mid-top boot styles reminiscent of 1960s duck-hunting boots, crafted from a mix of rubber, suede, and leather. The collection features Hunter’s signature army green and black color palette, accented with ‘KENZO red’ and the iconic Boke flowers.
For men, a utilitarian lace-up ankle boot in army-green leather with a recycled nylon upper is highlighted, featuring zigzag lacing, a red sole, and black shell foxing made from FSC-certified rubber. The Boke flower outsoles and logo branding adorn the boots.
Women can enjoy an all-black ‘ankle-to-calf’ boot in quilted, recycled nylon with a leather upper, mirroring the men’s version with oversized soles, shell foxing, and logo branding. The Boke outsole detailing is featured in white.
Both men and women can opt for a utilitarian ankle boot with an upper made from felt, leather, and recycled polyester, accompanied by a cover gaiter available in army green and red or all-black.
The collection also revisits the classic unisex original Wellington boot from 1956, incorporating KENZO’s Boke flower design on the side. Crafted from natural vulcanized rubber with a matte finish, the boot features playful Hana dots on the recycled polyester lining and the Hunter box logo on the top front.
The Wellington boot comes in black and army green for both men and women and red for women.
The KENZO x Hunter collaboration is available in KENZO stores, on KENZO.COM, and hunterboots.com.”
