The collaboration feels natural, almost preordained. Clarks, with its rich heritage and dedication to quality craftsmanship, provides the perfect canvas for Pellegrino’s artistic vision. The Clarks Wallabee, a beloved silhouette known for its versatility and comfort, becomes the stage for Pellegrino’s creative expression.

The centerpiece of the collection is a premium suede Wallabee featuring a captivating patchwork design. This patchwork approach showcases Clarks’ mastery of materials while echoing Pellegrino’s artistic sensibility. A touch of vibrant red, a favored hue of the artist, enlivens the sandy base and draws attention to the playful lettering adorning the heel.

The collaboration seamlessly integrates Pellegrino’s artistic touch without compromising the Wallabee’s core strengths. The classic natural crepe sole remains unchanged, ensuring the shoe retains its signature comfort and durability. The double-branded button closures subtly blend Pellegrino’s artistic touch with Clarks’ commitment to detail, creating a unified and visually appealing design.
