Here's great news for any women who have hankered after Orla Kiely's clothing in the past: she's done a limited range for Clarks, making Kiely's instantly recognisable style available at a more attainable price.
A giant of footwear has teamed up with a giant of retail to produce these Clarks x Liberty Desert Boots for women.
It's got a 1950s twist, but the Ashcott Monk shoe by Clarks actually dates back to the 1970s.
I'm guessing the shoe was brought out to take advantage of the 70s rock 'n' roll revival, as this new issue is apparently out 'to coincide with this season's rockabilly trend'. So if you want a 50s look with a 70s twist, here it is.
Made of black suede, with a monk strap, silver-effect buckle, a chequered trim and classic crepe sole, it's yours for £69.
Back from ther '70s, but with a 1950s twist, the Clarks Ashcott shoes are back on the market.
Yes, one from the archives, relaunched to 'coincide with the rockabilly trend' according to the maker, the shoes are much the same as the original, which means double lace-up fastening and that chunky crepe sole, finished off with a choice of light or dark suede.
You can secure a pair online at the Clarks website, price is £69.
When you think Clarks desert boot, I suspect you've got a certain 'look' in your mind. No surprise, it's a design classic. But it was never the only desert boot in the range. Indeed, one 'lost' gem is heading back to the racks – the Clarks Desert Mali boots.
First introduced back in 1967 and heading back to the racks this year after a long absence, it takes the term desert boot a little more literally, made to withstand tough terrain more than the usual boot. But with a suede upper in a choice of colours, I suspect it's far from perfect for a long desert trek.
Sold with vintage-style packaging and 'industrial' laces, it should be on the shelves in the coming weeks, price to be confirmed. Keep your eyes on the Clarks Originals section of the Clarks website
