PostLost in Music – The Clarks Festival Edit


It’s hard to deny that through the power of social media, the rise of the popular weekend city-festival, hand in hand with the increasingly savvy attendee, has meant that festival fashion is as apparent, exposed and crucial as ever, with a huge amount of festival-revellers now admitting that the days of taking just the “I don’t mind if this gets ruined” members of the wardrobe are certainly over. Key looks, outfits and costumes are organised and agonised over weeks in advance, with just about everyone wanting to get the look just right. The festival has been transformed in to a main-stage of style know-how. Fields of glittery, sequin-filled faces, beautifully clashing with colourfully indiscrete outfit combinations - shiny uniqueness, a playground for ultimate iridescent freedom…

And currently we’re seeing Somerset gear up to host the biggest festival in the world, and Clarks, being based a just a mere eight miles from the Glastonbury Festival site, finds it almost impossible to not be influenced by the festival in one way or another. Along with the beautifully unique and magical personality of Somerset, helping to define Clarks’ brand spirit and personality – embracing those unexplainable feelings of joy and freedom, what it is to be you and being unconditionally comfortable with that.

So whether you’re counting down the days until Glastonbury or holding out until Bestival - whether it's the type of festival that plays no music at all, whether the weather is good or bad, all festival-goers will know only too well, you always need that perfect pair of good weather shoes on hand as well as your old faithful wellies. And there’s no need to compromise on style, or indeed comfort, when it comes to the perfect festival shoes – we all know just how crucial it is to tick both boxes.

If it’s to start your packing, or simply just to channel the trend, we’ve pulled together an edit of festival-ready footwear to see you through the whole summer...

The most authentic Originals profiles couldn't be more ideal for festival season.

Plus they only get better with age, so they'll thank you for how much you'll end up walking in them...

Elsewhere look to thick stitch-down detailing, tobacco-tan leathers, loud, multi-colour canvas, cup soles and slip-ons for laid back, easy wearing.


So get the look, dance all night and love every minute. Celebrate freedom, enjoy the things you love. Feel good and look good doing them. Get lost in music, and embrace some Somerset magic...
