CLARKS ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF ITS SECOND COLLABORATION WITH VANDY THE PINK
In October 2022, Vandy released one of the hottest shoes on the planet when he customised 200 pairs of Wallabees by hand with skeleton detailing on the vamp. Now for the second instalment of the partnership with Clarks, Vandy reimagines the Wallabee Boot with his now-iconic burger motif
Vandy is a true designer who is known for his shoe and fashion creations. Born in Korea and based in Virginia, the designer-artist draws inspiration from his rich cultural background to reinterpret all-time classics with a unexpected twist. Eye-catching, imaginative and sophisticated, Vandy’s shoes bring a bold, playful look to any everyday outfit.
The designer has since extended his reach to collaborations with well-known brands, homeware designs and popular food packaging, including a recent collaboration with McDonalds.
To bring the burger Wallabee to life, the designer uses smooth tan suede, turning the iconic silhouette into a bun. The vamp is detailed with white embroidery that resembles sesame seeds for an authentic finishing touch. To complete the pair, two classic keyrings with double-sided logo are combined with four playful keyrings that look like hamburger toppings – tomato, lettuce, cheese and a patty. They capture Vandy The Pink’s signature ingenuity while keeping Clarks Originals dedication for to craft firmly in focus.
The new collection is now available in shops and online.
