Clipitty Clog.

As far as new season trends go, I invariably rejoice at the versatility and imagination of the designer collections. Picturing myself in high street versions as soon as Penny’s (Primark) or Topshop can get the looks in store. I will however admit, that much like a newly-released pop-song, there is always one trend that starts as a ‘grower’. This year, it was the clog. Chanel’s country-philic SS10 rtw show was the final catalyst, moving the humble surgeons shoe away from operating theatres (and Dutch windmills – see below) and into the 2010 fashion-conscience.

Personally, I am hoping that I’m not as shallow as to warm to the frankly clunky, clog, only after seeing Alexa Chung in a pair for the latest UK Vogue cover. In fact it’s probably a culmination of seeing the shoe there as well as on numerous pages inside the monthly glossies, that’s made the shoe more appealing. I.e. in the true sense of the ‘grower’ pop-song, the more you hear it the more you like it; the more I seen the clog, the more I like it. I’ve decided, after rekindling my love for the heel in general last weekend, that I shall probably indulge in a pair and probably one of these styles:

I say one of these styles, what I mean is one of the non-designer versions. Both the Miss Selfridge / Topshop ones are great, the Jeffrey Campbell’s look nearly exactly like the Chanel ones and thus I’m craving them. Then there’s the Hobbs ones that look like they would be great for running around the city in. I shall have to wait and see which I can get my fickle fashion fingers on! Clockwise from bottom left: Lottie clog mules £65 Topshop; Charlie clog, €95 Jeffrey Campbell; Slingback clog, £75 Asos.com, NW3 Wydles fringed clog, £119 Hobbs; Purple leather clog, £270 Christian Dior; Tassel mule, Alexander Wang; Slip on Clog £460, Yves Saint Laurent; Bow sandal clog, €70 Miss Selfridge; Centre image, Chanel SS1o runway, via style.com.

I’m sorry to say that clogs always remind me of this adorable children’s song too. (Written by Dicks & Rudge)

Verse:

A mouse lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam
A windmill with a mouse in and he wasn’t grousin’
He sang every morning, “How lucky I am,
Living in a windmill in old Amsterdam!”

Chorus:
I saw a mouse!
Where?
There on the stair!
Where on the stair?
Right there!
A little mouse with clogs on
Well I declare!
Going clip-clippety-clop on the stair
Oh yeah

    I love the look of the white studded clogs. I could definitely imagine myself wearing a pair of these in the Summer.

    They’re lovely aren’t they. I’m defo going to try and buy them on-line. The white really does make them totally summery.

    I saw the studded sling back clogs in the Times at the weekend, which said they were £75 from Topshop. You’ve got them listed here as £75 from ASOS. I can’t find them on either website!!
    Any ideas? I’m desperate to find them!!

      Hey Jess, thanks for stopping by. SO we’re talking about the brown studded clogs with the strap? So I checked this morning (with ASOS – defo!) and they’re saying they’ll be on-line Mar-April so I guess it’s just a matter of checking each day through those months until then?
      Also if you sign up for to ASOS ‘style news’ on their home page, they sometimes tell you about new pieces ‘in-store’ earlier. Good luck, I still can’t decide between them and the white Jeffrey Campbell ones! x

    I’m a girl from the Netherlands, but I’ve seen anyone with these clogs. These are the Swedish Dutch clogs are ugly. 🙂 I like this trend so I have ordered a pair of Topshop. I’ve seen it here, anyway no one walking.
