Orla Kiely for Clarks

Orla Kiely

Clarks has just made our desire for spring stronger than ever, as the label unveils its latest collaboration with fashion designer, Orla Kiely.

Known for her upbeat, retro-style prints, this is Orla Kiely's first foray into footwear – and we truly hope it won't be her last.

The capsule collection features six styles, among them a cool 70s platform, a young block-heeled slingback and a fun, Sixties-inspired floral pump.


Staying true to Orla Kiely's love of colour, the collection is bold and bright: navy, mustard, red and green are all on the menu.

Speaking about the collaboration, Orla said: 'I always wanted to design a footwear collection and for me Clarks was a very natural fit - particularly with their world renowned heritage and quality. Starting out from my original collection of bags and ready-to-wear, to the current wider lifestyle range I’m really proud of, it’s brilliant to now be able to add a stand-out shoe range to complete this.'

The collection will preview at London Fashion Week in February and will be available shortly after. See you in the queue...
