Thank God for Huffer! After a week of blacks, drabs and grunge, Huffer came through with a clean, colourful and FUN collection last night on Princes Wharf. The boys from Huffer claimed fishing as their inspiration for the range, and a lone fisherman cast his line out into the water as the models walked down the pier. I ran out back to have a quick word with Steve Dunstan (director of Huffer) after the show, and he told me: "It's crazy man, you have this dream and you don't know how it's going to work out. We came here to the wharf six weeks ago and we were like shit is this going to work? But I think we did it alright."
I'm exhausted after such a huge week and my fingers are too tired to keep typing. All I can say is that Huffer blew my mind. Full credit to those boys – this range is a gigantic step up for them, the perfect range to launch into the US – more details on that to come, and mad pops to Atip Wananuruks who styled it to perfection.
SO LONG, AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH!!
