Mr Hare has ceased trading. The luxury men's footwear brand has closed both its London stores at 8 Stafford Street in Mayfair and 22 Powis Terrace in Notting Hill as well as the firm's website. A cryptic message on the business' website reads “Mr Hare has gone sailing,” followed by words of thanks to all its customers. The specialist brand, which was launched by Marc Hare in 2009, had collaborated with fashion brands such as Topman, Massai and Hardy Amies. The store in Notting Hill had opened in April this year. It is not fully clear whether Mr Hare will be relaunching in the near future or if the business has ceased for good.
