Kicking off this week’s Who. What. Where? is Clarks who are partnering up with footwear designer Salehe Bembury to reinvent the iconic Lugger. It’s been almost 40 years since the famous shoe was introduced and now Bembury is bringing it back with a brand-new silhouette crafted from tactile suede and neoprene. Dubbed ‘The Mud Moss Lugger,’ the shoe fuses the American designer’s trademark style with the Wallabee Cup sole unit and details that stay true to the very first Lugger. Arriving in 3 bold colourways of Masala Orange, Sapa Green and Lichen Grey and crafted with Bemburys iconic trademark patterns and enliven textures, this is a shoe you’ll be needing in your 2023 rotation – and are available to purchase here.
Next, we have West-London rising star FelixThe1st, who taps French rapper 8Ruki for a captivating new track, ‘Lullaby.’ The woozy, atmospheric track sees the two artists explore their thoughts on love through auto-tune-soaked melodies backed by hypnotic production. The accompanying video, shot by Liam James, sees Felix and 8Ruki – who brings bilingual bars – take to the streets of Paris through VHS and night vision filters. With Felix fresh off the back of winning Song of the Year at the 2022 MOBO Awards, this year is set to be the artist’s biggest yet.
Closing out this week’s segment is Jimmy Choo, who today revealed their Spring 2023 campaign, featuring Kendall Jenner, who is returning for a second season as a continuation of the ‘TIME TO DARE’ series. Captured by Carlijn Jacobs in New York, the campaign aims to represent the brand’s confident and daring personality fused with elements of timeless glamour and effortless energy. Standouts in the collection include the platform TILDA 140 Loafer and neon green NEOMA 110 Sandals, alongside the TALURA 100 Heels and MACEO over-the-knee boots. While the brand’s core denim focus is also highlighted, offering a fusion of Y2K monogram-mania and contemporary design stamped with the brand’s signature JC logo – ensuring this collection will be one of the most sought after in 2023.
