London-based brand Aries has stepped into the collaborative world with the right foot forward. 2023 has seen Aries unite with Juicy Couture, Umbro, Tommy Jeans, and more, taking its British personality to global styles.
Now, Aries taps UK footwear titan Clarks Originals and hits the road in two reimagined Clarks models. The “Desert Trip” collection brings Aries’ psychedelic touch to the Wallabee and Desert Trek. The duo lands in a terrestrial universe, emulating exploration through time and space.
British photographer Douglas Irvine pushes the collaboration into a dream-like realm, traveling to Dungeness coastlines in Kent. The Clarks Originals Wallabee is captured with “Maple Combi” suede uppers and long-haired toe boxes featuring beaded lace ornamentation, illustrative hang tags, and inscribed crepe soles. Dissimilarly, the Desert Trek boasts animalistic patterns, striking purple foam bottoms, and matching decor.
Take a closer look at the Aries x Clarks Originals “Desert Trip” collection in the gallery above. The range will launch on June 9 in-store and online for £180 GBP (approximately $220 USD).
