Introducing the Clarks AW18 Grace Collection

Clarks have unveiled their latest autumn/winter 2018 collection entitled Grace; an innovative design-led collection that combines a sophisticated silhouette with a laid-back mood and all-important flexible fit for exceptional comfort. Echoing society’s move to a liberal stance, current lifestyle changes mean our priorities now focus on authenticity, purity and heritage instead of flashy trends and shallow one-season wonders. Likewise, our wardrobes – and more specifically our shoes – are following suit.

There are three key additions to the range that spearhead the campaign. A smart Derby shoe, a refined slip-on loafer style and a modern ankle Chelsea boot, all dutifully rich in colour with hues of black, chestnut and tanned leather.

The Clarks Grace collection perfectly captures the traditional essence of the brand's 200-year heritage whilst injecting a nuanced versatility to cater for those smart casual events. Clarks have always been at the vanguard of shoe design. Nathan Clark of the C. & J.Clark shoemaking family pioneered the first commercial desert boot when he returned from duty in Burma where he could see the potential in a more streamlined construction of the officers who had been fighting in Egypt.

'Clarks have a knack for discovering classics. The style has been a favourite of style and cultural icons over the decades - Steve McQueen (in 1963's The Great Escape), Bob Dylan and The Beatles were fans - and is a recurring stalwart of many style movements.' - Josh Sims, Icons of Men's Style. 

Clark's have raised the bar when it comes to comfortable shoes thanks to the insertion of a clever sock and underfoot cushioning in every style, meaning they are perfect for all-day wear. No need to hire someone to break in your shoes, although that is a great power move if you're ever looking for new ways to flaunt your wealth to the neighbours.

The Grace range is smart future-proof styling with a wrap-round construction to give a slipper-like fit and exceptional comfort. The Form Derby shoe is an ode to minimalistic perfection. Sleek, uncluttered look with a simple lace fastening and flexible leather outsole; effortlessly combining style with comfort. The Form Chelsea boot will be a key addition to your footlocker this autumn/winter. A textured chestnut leather upper infused with Clark's moisture-wicking Ortholite footbed and a leather lining and sock, these boots offer breathable comfort that lasts throughout the day.
