Cute Boys and Flash

Cute Boys and Flash

>> 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.    




I'm almost tempted to buy the desert boots in both pink/red and yellow/green styles just to create an installation in front of my future chimney brest wall, covered with Studio Lile Sadi's "Dimensions" wallpaper, alongside a few crocheted isometric cushions from Paravent on Etsy.  People in my life will know that soon there will be a proper Chez Salter and Lau as we're moving to our first joint home, providing that those pesky solicitors get their arses in gear.  Therefore you're going to have to put up with some of these loosely-related house-y bits creeping on to the blog once in a while.

    Good luck on your move Susie I hope it goes well.I’m a big fan of Clarks it’s great to see they are making some bold collaborations as befits their heritage.It’s so exciting for people at the bottom of the fashion food chain to be able access such delights. I’m drawn to the energy in the black and white desert boots along with the wallpaper!

    Hi Susie I began my blog not to long ago and you were the one who inspired me to become a fashion blogger. All of my friends think I’m to young to young to be a fashion blogger but I have realised that [from you blog of course] that my age doesn’t matter it’s the passion that does. I am only eleven, but you have inspired me to pursue my style aspirations so thank you. xxx

    The one who motivated me to become a style weblog writer. All of my buddies think I’m to younger to younger to be a style weblog writer but I have noticed that that my age doesn’t issue it’s the interest that does.
