British footwear retailer Clarks has selected Dubai as one of only three cities in the world to debut its new look concept store. Dubai became the first city in Asia to host the store featuring a contemporary retail design and layout while putting the brand’s British roots pride of place, featuring the Union Jack flag on the store exterior, at the Dubai Mall.
The space is currently showcasing the Autumn Winter 2014 collection for men, women and children. Here’s a sneak preview of what’s in store:
Orla Kiely for Clarks:
Following on from spring/summer’s hugely successful collaboration with acclaimed designer, Orla Kiely, Clarks continue their partnership with the ‘Queen of Prints’ for a second season. Renowned for her love of colour, pattern and texture, Kiely has taken her contemporary spin on 60s and 70s design and created a capsule collection of six styles.
Orla Kiely is endorsed by a celebrity fan base that includes Kate Middleton, Alexa Chung, Kiera Knightley, Kirsten Dunst and Zooey Deschanel.
Clarks AW 2014 for Women
AW14 presents a well-established collection of classic women’s boots, while casual flats go from strength to strength with a contemporary take on seasonal classics. Mid-heels, meanwhile, comprise must-have features, including premium brush-off leathers and stacked heels.
A unique feature is the ‘Clarks Plus’ intelligent underfoot cushioning in selected AW14 styles. With posture boosting technology, Clarks Plus aims to redistribute body weight more evenly around the foot to subtly reduce its forward pitch in high heels.
I know my feet will be ever grateful! Experience the new Clarks concept store yourself, now open at The Dubai Mall.
