An early look at some of the forthcoming A/W models from Clarks Originals, released later this Autumn...or Fall, if you're fashionable.
Starting with celebration of 40 years of the classic Desert Trek (aka D Trek) with an exclusive collaboration with Trojan Records, ace.
Featuring the Trojan logo stamped to the rear and the Clarks rambler tag, or the ‘bank robber man’ as he’s more fondly know over the water.
Next up is another fine take on the favourite ever present Desert boot with an elegant and grown up herringbone Harris Tweed twist.
Cord shoes? Yes please, something cool which just doesn’t happen enough these days. A pimped up Desert boot with a lower crepe sole in navy corduroy with pinstripe lining via East London’s JAGUAR SHOES COLLECTIVE. Just don’t team them up with your cord trousers!
Finally Clarks go all international with popular premium Japanese outwear brand Rocky Mountain Featherbed on a fresh two tone take on a personal fave the Wallabee.
If they’re not enough to whet your appetite, another one to look out for is to celebrate the year of Jamaican independence as well as a beautiful documentation of Jamaican culture, DJ Al Fingers of ONELOVE books is releasing a beautiful coffee table book titled ‘Clarks in Jamaica’ which through current and historic photographs, interviews, and previously unseen archival material, focuses on the Jamaican musicians and those who have worn and sung about Clarks shoes for years. This book explores how footwear made by a Quaker firm in the small, quiet, English village of Street, Somerset, came to be the “baddest” shoes in Jamaica.
