Hunter introduces a new capsule collection in collaboration with BBC AMERICA’s and Sid Gentle Films BAFTA, Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning television series Killing Eve, inspired by the spirit of the show and its iconic style moments, in a partnership facilitated by IMG. A global phenomenon, Killing Eve is broadcast to more than 140 countries.
The limited-edition capsule features two new designs for the brand, The Hunting is a mid-calf style boot available in Black and Olive and The Chasing is a knee-high style, available in Black, Olive and Camel colourways.
These strong, utilitarian designs marry style with functionality and have been crafted to embrace the outdoors and exploration of the unknown – reinterpreting the tough, daring and bold themes of the show to create something that could be worn in its cinematic world. The quintessential Hunter boot has been a global style icon for decades, making the brand a perfect fit for a collaboration with the show, appealing to its fashion conscious and culturally engaged audience.
Protection, innovation and intricate details are at the heart of the capsule, with each design made from waterproof Stetson leather, light natural rubber and recycled ballistic nylon with a recycled vegan shearling lining. The shorter Hunting Boot has a leather foot with a nylon upper and features a removable ankle strap and pouch, perfectly sized for essential items. Both styles are finished with Hunter’s new chunky high-grip sole made from FSC-certified rubber.
The collection will launch exclusively with SSENSE and globally on Hunterboots.com in early February before being available with selected stores including Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, and Liberty.
Paolo Porta, Chief Executive Officer, Hunter Boots, said: “We are incredibly excited to be collaborating with the cultural phenomenon that is Killing Eve, marrying our utilitarian heritage with the award-winning television series renowned for its empowered fashion moments. These innovative boots incorporating recycled materials, strongly express the fusion of function and style, for which all Hunter iconic products are known.”
Sally Woodward Gentle, Killing Eve, Executive Producer, Sid Gentle Films CEO, commented: “Hunter is a globally celebrated brand with storied heritage of over 160 years and we are delighted to be collaborating with them on this capsule. Their fusion of protection, functionality and style are a perfect fit for Killing Eve.”
