>> I have nothing but isometric cubes building up in escalated form in my head thanks to a collaboration between London prinsters Eley Kishimoto and beloved shoe brand Clarks will be available on 1st March (you can register your interest through the Notify Me button on the Clarks site). Back in September, Eley Kishimoto showcased exactly why the duo Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto have such a versatile method of collaboration, with the "Living with Patterns" exhibition at The Aram Gallery in London. From home interiors to transportation to home electricals, Eley Kishimoto have built up an exhaustive list of collaborators, often using house signatures such as the Flash pattern as their design constant, bridging all of these diverse projects together. For their 20th anniversary, they continue to spread their print gospel with another strong collaboration that ties in with their current S/S 13 collection. The three-style, three-print collection for Clarks gives our feet the opportunity to be adorned with the classic black Flash pattern as well two colourways of the distorted isometric cube print, entitled "Cute Boys". Not sure how the title relates to the design of the print other than I can well imagine a room full of Cute geek-ish Boys meticulously drawing angle-perfect isometric cubes.
I suspect the printed desert boots will be the hot cake style of the range as this design classic can't be beat for its practical nature and all purpose wearability, but sadly the links keep leading me to blank pages. I have pedantically emailed the PR to see whether this is a glitch or whether they've already flown out of the store at super high speed.
