One of the world's finest arts and crafts museums, the Victoria & Albert, joins an equally British institution for a range of shoes and boots. Clarks currently sponsoring the V&A show "Shoes: Pleasure and Pain," the Somerset maker creates a collection inspired by a couple of British subcultures, the '50s Teddy Boy and the '80s Goth; delving into the museum's vast shoe archive for visual reference. Described as "a shoe collection that could walk straight out of the museum and onto the street" the range includes styles for men, women and kids. Thick sole creepers are produced in pony skin and Italian leather, contrast stitch desert boots get a wallpaper print lining while straps replaces laces on other models. Shop the collection at the Clarks website.
