Regular readers of my blog will know I love Clarks and Orla Kiely, but what I REALLY love, is when the two brands join forces each season to produce a collection of footwear!
Clarks X Orla Kiely first joined forces in SS14 and everyone went crazy for it! Clarks bring the shoe know-how and comfort, while Orla Kiely provide the perfect prints and retro feel. The price tag is somewhere in the middle of the two brands. The upper-end of Clarks prices and an affordable way to buy into the Orla Kiely brand.
When the SS14 collaboration was launched, I raced to get the Platforms. I love them, but don’t wear them *that* often, as I feel pretty tall in them and I’m not *that* good in high heels. This AW14, I have opted for the super chic and practical Dora loafers. I love a good pair of loafers, the navy blue and dark green with buttons and pony skin just called my name! Practical enough to wear on a daily basis, interesting enough to cause a stir. I also have a pretty amazing vintage navy blue and green cape, which I know they will be super cute with!
The Clarks X Orla Kiely shoes always sell out pretty fast, so if you do want to buy a pair, hurry up as some styles have already sold out in popular sizes.
Ps. I went to the Orla Kiely SS15 presentation at LFW last week and I am excited to say there will be a third collaboration between the two brands!
