Salehe Bembury and Clarks Originals Unveil “Mud Moss” Lugger Collaboration

Salehe Bembury‘s Lugger collaboration with Clarks Originals was first announced in October, and today the newly-minted creative partners have unveiled formal release dates — as well as new colours — for their co-created product.

The Lugger, an under-the-radar Clarks shape, is poised to take a big stride into the spotlight, and Bembury has recreated it in three new colorways: a strong orange and blue, a vivid green and pink, and a cool grey and navy.

Despite their color differences, all three pairs are identical in construction and ornamentation. They have an ultra-shaggy suede forefoot stamped with the abstract “splash” pattern Bembury employs for his Spunge releases, a collar with similar printed features, and an asymmetrical lacing system that veers towards the collar’s lateral side. A moccasin-like seam wraps around the lateral forefoot and swoops across the toebox, but that’s not the only off-center element here.

An ultra-thick crepe sole completes each style. Exact design inspiration has not been disclosed, but the Luggers are likely inspired by Bembury’s fascination with the great outdoors, as evidenced by the accompanying campaign video and the orange/blue colorway’s palette, which is similar to 2020’s Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R “Peace Be the Journey.”

The Salehe Bembury x Clarks Originals “Mud Moss” Luggers will be available on January 20th at 9am PST at Bembury’s Spunge website.
