Why Rent Clothes

Why do you like to rent on HURR?

I think renting special occasion pieces is the way fashion should move forward to a more sustainable way of consuming clothes and HURR makes things just so easy. And the collection that you have available is just stunning.

What’s your favourite vintage store in London?

I love the Brick Lane Vintage Market for the huge selection that you can find there. There are a lots of pop ups and you can find almost everything you are looking for.
But also Rokit Vintage I think they have good pieces and the prices are great for the London market.

Can you tell us a story of a favourite piece you rented on HURR?

I think this is the perfect time of the year to rent your outfit. All those festive parties and dinners that you want to go and look your best. And always feel a little bit weird wearing the same thing all over again. A great solution is renting. On the HURR website I have my eyes on a gorgeous yellow Rotate Birger Christensen dress and in a stunning red velvet Ghost one.

Describe your style in three words!

My style in three word... vintage-inspired (that count?), eclectic and feminine.

Any words of advice for new renters?

Don't be afraid of experiment with new way of fashion and the louder the better. It’s the perfect opportunity to wear that dress that it’s too much to invest in because you are going to wear it only for an occasion, but renting...you have no excuse to sparkle.

Why Rent Clothes

Why do you like to rent on HURR?

Because it’s super easy to use , has a great variety of clothes and accessories & I love the community of HURR girls. It’s trustworthy and friendly. It feels so sweet that the rest of the HURR girls don’t mind sharing their wardrobe with one and other. I love that aspect

Favourite part of the renting process?

My fave part is that you may rent an item for a week and only intend to wear it for one event but it’s nice to feel like you own it for that week. I end up wearing pieces more because of that and it’s great to know clothes / accessories are being loved.

Can you tell us a story of a favourite piece you rented on HURR?

I seem to love my accessories a lot! I’ve rented Soru pearl earrings for a friends summer wedding , and recently some vintage Chanel earrings.

What’s your favourite piece you’re renting out that you want people to wear?

My fave piece I’m renting out has to be my Zimmerman paisley shirt. I am so happy I bought the shirt this summer, as ive loved wearing it. It’s such a gorgeous item. I’m obsessed with the print & the balloon sleeves are really outstanding. It’s a shirt you feel absolutely amazing in!

Can you describe your style in three words?

Easy, colourful and comfortable.

How do you make sure to get the most out of your rentals?

I make sure I get the most out of rentals by wearing more than once! I’ve rented an item because I love it therefore I’m going to wear it around the house if I’m not going anywhere. I wore the Chanel earrings to sit in my house for Sunday dinner before I had to part with them. That was a sad time. I adore those earrings. They make even the simplest of outfits look so chic

Any words of advice for new renters?

Go for something you have never worn before / a brand you’ve not bought from before. There are dresses I have my eye on at HURR which I would have never had my eye on before. It’s nice to be inspired by other people’s wardrobes and styles and experiment with that.

Why Rent Clothes

Why do you like to rent on HURR?

The sustainable aspect is hugely important to me. As a vegan, it can be hard to find stylish party wear made without animal products such as silk so renting from HURR is perfect for those special occasions.

Favourite part of renting process?

I often play it safe but since joining HURR, I have experimented more. I've tried styles I would never have considered before and had so much fun with the way I dress. It has also been great to meet the lovely HURR team and the customer service has been brilliant.

Can you tell us a story of a favourite piece you rented on HURR.

I rented the Meryl dress from Ghost for a friend's Swedish wedding in Málaga. I wore this for the Spanish-themed welcome night as I loved the subtle "flamenco" flare of the fluted sleeves. I definitely want to invest in a piece from Ghost as I received so many compliments.

What’s your favourite piece you’re renting out that you want people to wear?

My striped blue Missoni dress. It is the perfect summer dress but would also be cute layered on top of a polo. It can be dressed up or down and looks great even with a pair of flip flops and beach hair.

Describe your style in three words.

Romantic, preppy, colourful  

How do you make sure to get the most out of your rentals?

I like to ensure I rent for a party or wedding so I plan well in advance and think about how I will style the outfit. Accessories make a huge difference.

Any words of advice for new renters?

Be bold and try a different style. You'll can choose later to invest in similar pieces if you loved the look. Most of us play it way too safe most of the time.
