When British April showers turned into May showers, when you haven’t experience prolonged (more than one hour) sunshine in more than a month, and when (on a more positive note) the festival season is around the corner, you know there is only one thing to do – shop for new wellington boots! In my mind there is only one brand out there that is not just utilitarian but also super cool – Hunter. I myself invested into red Hunter for Jimmy Choo a few seasons ago and have never regretted my decision. But now that it feels like we need wellies not just for festival and out-in-the-country wear, I was looking for something just as practical and fashionable yet less ‘out there’ as my red pair. And I found just the right ones! Shoreditch Ladies Biker Hunters, £95 (my-wardrobe.com). Their short length makes them city friendly, metal plate and buckle makes them luxurious yet tough and a whole resemblance with leather biker boots makes me fall in love with them even more. I don’t know about you, but for me they are the most perfect Hunters ever made. (Cash register sound).

What has everyone been talking about since LV Autumn/Winter show? The LV wellies of course! (LV would disagree with my terminology – they named this rubber creation Fetish High Boot.) Now they are available to buy and definitely deserve a place on my fashion wishlist.
They are absolutely perfect for London – unarguably the most fashionable way to step out into the rain. Previously it was all about Jimmy Choo and Hunter collaboration (I own a beautiful pair in red) but now the world of wellies has been improved by adding a high heel. Now wellies are ready to rock the urban environment.
Available in 3 colours – green, black and red for £630.
