Clarks 'Rebooted' Part 1

Sixty Five years ago a legend was born.  Clarks is celebrating the 65th anniversary of its iconic Desert Boot with a special collaboration called 'Rebooted'.  This collaboration is between Clarks and art curator Filippo Tattoni-Marcozzi who commissioned 14 British artists and designers to reinterpret the famed boot.  So each designer will have a boot for 'Rebooted' along with a corresponding work of art.

Clarks has partnered with land mine removal charity, The HALO Trust, on the global initiative. Clarks: Rebooted is currently on an international art and design tour starting in Shanghai this month followed by Milan (April), New York (May during Frieze) then back to London in October for a gala and auction with proceeds going to The HALO Trust.

The first three styles launch today with a limited edition run of 250 pieces each.  Check out Frank Bowling's cool faded pastel boot, TOOGOOD's cut out minimal gladiator boot and Thomas J. Price's x-ray/ heat effect printing on the Clarks site now.
