END. X CLARKS ORIGINALS "ARTISAN CRAFT" V25 December 2022
END. and Clarks Originals reunite with the second instalment of "Artisan Craft", with a duo of iterations in tan and green.
END. and Clarks Originals reunite with the second instalment of “Artisan Craft”, following on from their two-piece collection that debuted in 2020. The capsule represents a celebration of artisanal craft techniques and the individuals that uphold them, reworking the ever-iconic Wallabee with a heavy emphasis on details and materials.
For centuries, artisanal craft has been a practice that prioritises a slower, more considered approach to creating products, often utilising flourishes achieved by hand detailing and years of learning and refinement. Channelling that, END. and Clarks Originals bring the Wallabee under the spotlight again, with a duo of iterations — one regular, one boot — in tan brown and green.
The design codes utilised in the debut collection are continued in “Artisan Craft” V2, with both iterations transformed through a meticulous approach to the finer details. Each shoe is constructed using two-tone suede and nubuck, with cross hand stitch detailing worked into their vamps and back quarters. Furthering the detail-heavy appearance, the shoes’ ankle collars are woven with a colourful geometric pattern, while beaded lace charms and tassels are worked into the laces. To complete the collaborative look, debossed co-branding is worked into the insoles, with the footwear label’s name alongside the British retailer’s.
The END. x Clarks Originals “Artisan Craft” V2 collection will launch via END. Launches on the 10th December.
