Ronnie Fieg, famed for his collaborative masterpieces and the birth of Kith, is no stranger to forging remarkable partnerships. As winter approaches, Fieg resurrects his alliance with Clarks Originals for the upcoming 8th Street installment. With past successes under this partnership and the increasing anticipation for Clarks' collaborations in recent months, this release is earmarked as one of the most awaited of the season.
This upcoming collection showcases Fieg's meticulous touch on two Clarks silhouettes: the Rossendale and the all-new Rushden. The iconic Clarks genuine crepe outsole is central to both models, a testament to the brand's heritage and commitment to comfort. Ronnie Fieg's distinct imprint is evident, with the shoes boasting debossed co-branding, an unmistakable mark of this prolific collaboration.
The Rossendale, a previously familiar figure, gets a transformative lift. Now presenting as a mid-cut silhouette, it has two compelling versions. The first is a sumptuous Chocolate shade, crafting a sophisticated ensemble with its leather upper and snug shearling lining. Its counterpart, the Mustard edition, appeals to tactile senses with its plush suede exterior, harmoniously contrasted by a leather interior. The collection's star, the Rushden Boot, draws inspiration from the rugged aesthetics of military combat boots. This fresh silhouette from Clarks, available in leather and suede, boasts an innovative wavy crepe outsole. The boots are crowned with prominent webbed heel pulls, amplifying their contemporary appeal.
The 8th St. By Ronnie Fieg x Clarks Originals Winter 2023 Collection will release October 27, 2023, through Kith online and in-store. As of this writing, the retail pricing has yet to be announced.
