They have just opened a store in Rosebank and they have already got a lot of people excited… Now I dunno if I would look good in a pair of Hush Puppies, but they sure are hot and look good on some guys I know…
Hush Puppies came to prominence at a time of great musical and cultural prominence, making the brand a staple of the late 50s Rock ‘n Roll scene, as well as the footwear of choice for the fashion conscious ‘lads’ of the 1980s. HemingwayDesign for Hush Puppies is inspired by Hush Puppies ‘role in youth culture movements from the 1950s until now. The collaboration between Hush Puppies and HemingwayDesign was spearheaded by Jack Hemingway of HemingwayDesign, combining Hush Puppies’ aesthetic and quality with Hemingway’s fresh interpretation of heritage trends. Jack Hemingway said, “We haven’t just reproduced the iconic styles from the brand, but instead we’ve taken the best bits of Hush Puppies and brought them up to date. The collection is homage to the great moments in British fashion, but placed in a modern context for today’s fashion conscious consumer worldwide.”
Jack Hemingway is a 25 year old multi-disciplinary senior designer, specializing in product, fashion, graphic, exhibition and event design at HemingwayDesign, the company established by his parents Wayne and Geraldine Hemingway.
