Clarks Originals Presents: SUNSET

This Summer, Clarks Originals is taking us back to the golden age of the rave. Yes, we’re talking the UK in the early nineties, when sweaty dark rooms and pumping music was the epitome of freedom and self-expression. Blissfully depicted in a short film by renowned director Glenn Kitson, Sunset: A Clarks in Manchester Film delivers a glimpse back into the euphoria of the acid house scene. Paying homage to Sunset 102, a local Manchester-based radio station that Kitson grew up listening to, the project celebrates the essence of raving culture and community. 

Released alongside three special-edition Clarks Collections, each offering explores the label’s most timeless silhouettes through a rave-esque lens. In this article, we’ll be taking you through some of our favourite picks from each capsule. Let’s get into it.

“Sunset: A Clarks In Manchester Film is about exactly that: it’s a love letter to raving and going out partying and the friendships you make along the way.” – Glenn Kitson

Clarks Originals | Swirl Collection

Clarks Originals | Swirl Collection

Providing an innovative take on a timeless favourite, the Swirl Collection is bursting with vitality whilst honouring Clarks as the streetstyle icon of the 80s and 90s. The ‘Blue/Lime’ Print bed boasts a wavy, trippy print, drawing inspiration from the graphic designs found on posters from the acid house rave scene. Boasting an equally eye-catching exterior, the ‘Pale/Lime’ iteration expresses premium pale lime suede uppers with thick grey laces. Both styles include a pale lime fob and a fob adorned with a ‘psychedelic’ wavy print.
