Last week we headed down to the launch of the collaboration between Clarks Originals and The JaguarShoes collective.
Inspired by the signage above the JaguarShoes Collective’s Flagship space, DreamBags, the classic Clarks Desert Boot takes on a corduroy makeover – a navy upper with a contrasting cream and red striped leather lining.
For those not too familiar, the JaguarShoes Collective is a group of artists and illustrators, so obviously they had to get in on the action as well. With each pair of shoes, you’ll get a pair of British themed socks. Chrissie Abbott’s ‘Rain & Shine’ design for women or McBess’s ‘Plates of Meat’ for men.
On the night, a couple of bands took to the floor, one of which was fronted by famed illustrator McBess himself and for an official industry event, it was fairly laid back with a friendly nature.
