The eagerly awaited Clarks Desert Boots collection is finally available, this has been a great project for us to work on with one of our favourite brands. As a tie-in to the 65th anniversary of the famous Desert Boot, we were asked about doing a take on this not often seen sweater from a rare black and white photo. Worn by British athlete Ken Crutchlow in 1970 when he ran across America's treacherous Death Valley in this home made sweatshirt, a pair of Desert boots, a bowler hat and a brolly. Yes, it was a bet.
The stand out piece is the sweatshirt, coming in a loopback Organic Grey marl jersey with V insert collar and black Flock fabric lettering. To accompany this, we also have a tee with the Navy and Red colours which we were lucky enough to see via the Clarks archive. We also have a 'Ken' design too illustrated by Peter O'Toole.
All available online tomorrow from 7pm. Limited to one per person on the sweatshirts.
