Patta x Clarks Originals AW19 Desert Trek

This AW19 Patta has joined with Clarks Originals to produce two monochromatic iterations of the classic Desert Trek Silhouette.

As a favourite silhouette of the Patta crew, the Desert Trek is also cultural classic in Jamaica – a point that Patta co-founder Guillaume Schmidt wanted to highlight in this collaboration. Jamaicans affectionately call the Desert Trek the “Bank Robber” after its Trekman logo debossed on the shoe’s rear quarter, and is one of Jamaica’s most loved and worn pairs.

The Patta Desert Trek is offered in two clean monochromatic options of black and white. Both made from butter-soft leather and feature patent leather side panels — where you can find debossed Patta and Trekman branding.

The lookbook for the collaboration was shot by Stacii Samidin in Kingston, Schmidt wanted to capture Jamaica’s culturally rich and important music scene, featuring emerging new school reggae artist, Mortimer, alongside Ledger and Damus.

To celebrate the launch of the one off Desert Trek, Patta and Clarks Originals held an event and exhibition showcasing Stacii Samidin’s lookbook at Unit 1 Gallery in London on the weekend of Notting Hill carnival.

The Patta x Clarks Originals AW19 Desert Trek will be launching at The Hip Store on 31/08/19 online at 08:00am and in Leeds from 09:00am.
