The Mary & Clarks Spring/Summer 2012 Collection – fashion meets comfort!



The gorgeous range infuses classic styles with the key colours of the season making them must-haves for any woman. The designs boast on trend features such as mirrored heels, colour pops in neon lime, textured snake prints and wearable natural shades which adorn wedges, sandals, Mary Janes and party shoes. Everything needed for a great shoe collection!

Mary says:

`The most important thing we have tried to do is create a modern shoe collection for every part of a modern woman`s life today. Life is not about teetering about painfully on top of a pair of heels – we`ve got the kids to run after and work to get on with. This collection is about being able to look fashionable and fabulous while getting through the daily grind. From efficient and sexy office shoes, and glamorous evening heels, to cool and funky everyday footwear – these shoes are on-trend and gorgeous, all with a bit of the Mary edge.”

To celebrate the launch and London Fashion Week, Mary Portas will be holding a party at Clarks, Oxford Street on 21st February 2012 where shoppers can come along for free, meet the fashion guru herself, get some handy style tips and have a chance to try on the collection. Sip a bespoke `Bloody Mary` whilst browsing the range as well as receiving a free pair of shoes from the collection or at least 20% off to spend in store from a Mary Lucky Dip. A fabulous must-go to event with a few surprises planned for the day too!

This recent collection is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Mary Portas and Clarks and has been designed for women, not girls. The detailing gone into each design is amazing making every aspect of them perfect for a busy woman`s lifestyle. Discomfort and pain normally comes along with a gorgeous pair of high heels but that`s something you don`t have to worry about with these shoes. They are super stylish and pain free – what all us women dream a shoe should consist of!

Mary adds:

`I defy anyone to say they can find a more comfortable three inch heel than mine.”

The launch of the Mary & Clarks debut collection was incredibly successful so there was no doubt there would be a second instalment for this SS12. The popularity of the collaboration is down to Clarks` design philosophy, exceptional standards of craftsmanship and Mary`s distinct sense of style.

Packaged in their own specially designed luxury shoe box, the range of 27 across 10 styles will be exclusively available in 20 Clarks stores nationwide and online at It`s so difficult to pick a favourite – I may have to have one of each style!
