Accessories designer Orla Kiely has turned her hand to footwear design for a new collaboration with Clarks footwear. Bringing her retro inspired look to the new shoes, Orla has created several new styles, each with their own unique spin and a strong 60s look, some featuring a subtle floral print. Opening up on the collection, Orla says it was inspiring to see how Clarks make shoes and a very exciting opportunity for her:  "I love Clarks for its heritage and Britishness. I grew up with Clarks, as most Brits do, and was very excited to work together with the brand. I felt we could bring something new to Clarks with our signature colours and aesthetic – mid-century 60’s/70’s feeling with a contemporary twist."

Orla has never designed shoes prior to the collection and says that it was interesting to get a view of the process works from start to finish. She adds that it was unique to step in to a whole new territory and tackle aspects such as shoe shape:  "I've never done a shoe collaboration before. It was interesting to see the full process and how my design aesthetic would work best with the Clarks brand. With my previous collaborations, we've used prints from our archives and more recently designed new prints - but for the shoes it was more about designing shoe shapes, styles and design accents - which was exciting and fun! Clarks has been one of my favourite collaborations to date. I’m very happy with the result, to combine design, style, comfort and quality is difficult and I think we have achieved it with this collaboration."

The collection is now available to buy through Clarks online store.
