Co-founded by friends Valentina Muntoni and Stephanie Cara Bennett in 2015, Rat & Boa is the UK-based dress brand that has achieved the ultimate cult status this summer. As seen in Who What Wear and all over Instagram, we knew our HURR Family would be all over it. These pieces have been renting on repeat all summer long. See which pieces you can rent now from cult brand Rat & Boa.
We love when members of our community tell us they've discovered their new favourite brand by renting first. It makes us feel like the cupid of fashion, matchmaking people and clothes. Here are 5 brands we think you'll fall for.

Welcome to a very special edition of In HURR Wardrobe with STACEY DOOLEY.

We took a peek inside her home to learn more about her approach to fashion, explored pieces in her wardrobe and why she loves renting fashion with HURR. Also excitingly, she’s now lending some of her own pieces—including a pair of Gucci shoes she wore on Ru Paul’s Drag Race—on HURR too!

We’re so excited to share a curated collection of Spring/Summer and hero pieces from The Vampire’s Wife—exclusively available to rent now on HURR.

In HURR Wardrobe is back with a very special edition starring Freya Rabet. After working as a designer for both fast and sustainable fashion brands, Freya Rabet launched her own label, Freya Simonne, of upcycled pieces last year and an environmental education project, Protect Your Mother. As extensions of her own personal style and sustainable ethos, Freya crafts her limited-edition collections from gorgeous vintage fabrics and duvets in an array of florals and pastel hues. We caught up with Freya to learn more about her work and to introduce you to her fabulous world.
Not only did we get a behind-the-scenes peek at Freya's design process and personal style ("Eclectic! Feminine! Fun!") but she is also launching an exclusive capsule rental collection of her pieces on HURR, a portion of the proceeds of which will be donated to her friend's charity, The Love Hearts Appeal. Her entire process is the embodiment of our monthly theme of loving your clothes. Welcome to In HURR Wardrobe.
