The “Queen of Prints” Orla Kiely teams up with Clarks to give the classic footwear brand a makeover that takes us back to the set of Love Story, starring Ali McGraw. Indeed, the designer took inspiration from the show and she “wanted the shoes to have that preppy, university librarian vibe”.
The autumn/winter silhouettes of t-bars, lace-ups and loafers are combined seamlessly with cutesy features like appliqué flowers and buckles, finished with leathers, textures as well as oversized buckles. The colour palette had been considered carefully, keeping Orla Kiely’s recognisable colours like navy, cocoa and rose in tact. They may not be something you’d buy on the regular, but they’ll definitely come in handy on days where you want to add an extra touch of cuteness into your outfit.
The Clarks x Orla Kiely is exclusively available from October 7th onwards at Clarks @ ION Orchard and Tangs (Vivo & Orchard). Clarks.Sg
