An exclusive collaboration with the Royal Horticultural Society, Hunter was granted access to their Lindley Library Archive to select historic floral paintings to create footwear that combines performance, comfort and heritage.
The only brand to use works from the RHS on footwear, Hunter has brought together a series of watercolours dating back to the 19th century, featuring wildflowers and plants that form the unique designs.
The floral print on the boot is made of different works from two artists. The first featured on the boot, is artist Lilian Snelling, from her images of wildflowers. Praised for her work, in 1955, she was awarded the Victoria Medal of Honour by the RHS, granted to those who have given outstanding service to the society.
The second artist on the design is Caroline Maria Applebee, born in London in 1799. Though little is known about this talented artist, there are over 300 of her artworks in the Lindley Library Archive, which depict many rare and exotic plants.
