Global British brand Clarks combines global influence with British sensibility for autumn/winter ’16 collection
In the 190th year of the Clarks story, the autumn/winter ‘16 men’s collection captures the key moods of the season and adds the quintessentially British signature of Clarks. Designers have scoured the world for inspiration, meaning that each shoe is infused with global influences as well as embodying the brand values first set down by the Clarks brothers in 1825.
In this new offering, classic designs have been reinterpreted for now with a stylish twist. Each shoe has the craftsmanship of Clarks at its core; each wooden last is bespoke and there is immaculate attention to detail in trims, finishes and detailing. Meanwhile, unique technology pioneered by Clarks is apparent in the quietly functional features of every style. Epitomised by the Clarks Desert Boot, it’s this unique combination of art and artisanship, innovation and imagination that guides us as we create stylish shoes that are a pleasure to wear.
Introducing our new collections for autumn/winter ’16…
The everyday is elevated as Derbys, toe-capped boots and high tops are reimagined with of-the- moment chalk white stitching and commando sole patterns- it’s all in the details. The Arton Walk is our refreshed interpretation of the timeless Derby in navy suede with exceptionally crafted stitching and contrast lacing. The Dargo Top, wrought in black leather, takes the classic boot and reworks it to become tough luxe, with sole detailing, burnished leather and statement chunky cleated soles.

Sartorial elegance is the starting point for shoes which are designed to work seamlessly from day-to- night. The emphasis is on bold toe shapes, be they square or pointed, which create statement silhouettes which feel at once modern and traditional. Time-honoured construction techniques not only speak to perfected craftsmanship but add comfort. The Penton Limit is a classic wing-tip brogue which comes in a rich brown or black combination with stylish dark green detailing. Meanwhile, the Gabwell Step takes the trend for slip-ons and adds a luxurious twist with polished chestnut leather and a discreet heel tab.
