London footwear designer Mr Hare opens his second store, this time heading even further West, landing in swanky Notting Hill. 245 sqft on Westbourne Grove follows the original Mayfair address, this fresh location will stock formal, work, evening, winter, summer and casual collections and big new for the ladies, many styles will now go down to a size 2. Marc Hare, no stranger to the area having lived and worked locally for years, explains, “I am on a mission to remind the new international locals, just what a cool place Notting Hill was before that film burred its edge…From the shubeens and dancehalls of the ’50s and ’60s onto the punk movement in the 70s and the ever-popular Notting Hill carnival, this special part of West London has always been a place where free expression is a local trait.”
