Hunte’s fantasy was to add two juxtaposing elements together- Swimwear pieces and Fur to create innovative garments. The collection consisted of light overcoats, mix media jackets and wetsuits. This collection personified the strong nature of water and fur through powerful and impeccable creations. Pops of primary colors- blue, red and yellow were seen in luxe mix media fabrics including mink fur, denim, camouflage, cotton and French terry and the reinvention of the designer’s signature pieces. The models walked down the runway, featuring an array of our collaborations with Swarovski, Look Mate London Socks, Kopenhagen Fur, and Teva.
