THE BEAUTY OF FORM UNDER FREEDOM
SUCH WORDS FIND RESONANCE WITH GRACE EVA, A BALLET HEEL FOR WOMEN BY CLARKS THAT IS A SYMBIOSIS OF 190 YEARS OF SHOEMAKING EXCELLENCE AND TIMELESS ELEGANCE, DESIGNED FOR CONTEMPORARY LIVING.
The cornerstone of the modern woman’s wardrobe is versatility, apparel that responds to the sartorial requirements of its day and doesn’t seek to impinge further upon the rigours of modern living.
With Grace Eva, Clarks has created a shoe that revels in the elegance of simplicity and the sheer joy of femininity, all underpinned by superior design know-how. Et voilà - a shoe that does not intend to compromise or assert itself over one’s personal style.
Today, the free spirit of femininity shines through, holding greater currency and influence than ever before. You might call it “soft power”. Consider the ballet dancer, the leitmotif and inspiration for the Grace Eva heel: dazzling acts of athleticism are accomplished through poise and composure; artistry executed with meticulous focus.
An essential component of this is the pointe shoe, a sumptuous satin slipper in which, traditionally, a platform of tightly packed paper and fabric is encased at the toe to offer balance and unerring support. It’s the steely backbone from which beauty springs.
The ballet dancer is grace under fire. So too is the modern woman. A shoe offering stylish support means one less thing to worry about.
THE FREE SPIRIT OF FEMININITY SHINES THROUGH
Every pair of Clarks shoes begins with a last carved by hand from a single block of Italian smoked hornbeam, honed and smoothed to perfection by the hands of Clarks’ master technicians. Clarks’ pursuit of excellence in footwear design informs its use of the latest digital technology to capture and record these lasts for its sole use, thus serving to advance its shoemaking process to create considered and beautifully crafted footwear. It’s in this uniquely Clarks’ process that Grace Eva is rooted.
The vagaries and flippancies of fashion mean that there’s always another “It shoe” on the horizon, some fanciful object as fleeting as it is susceptible to poor imitations.
The Grace Eva heel offers a previously unexplored proposition: a shoe of elegant design, luxurious materiality and superb construction, all invested in enhancing the wearer’s well-being and personal style. Such attributes are no longer mutually exclusive - nor should they ever have been, you might say - and here we find them in the most flattering shape and discerning hue, fortified by 190 years of craftsmanship and shoemaking expertise.
A shoe that will take you from day to night and become an essential wardrobe staple: a shoe for all occasions, a shoe for all women.
