Swedish Hasbeens, revival of the Clog! 2010 it's the latest
Swedish Hasbeens is bringing the Clog back!
Fashion is like a little germ, the evil bug in the backyard of a daycare, pre-school or any other location housed with caughing children, it really just takes one, one iconic 'I look up to you' sort of friend and then you will have it too (or in many of my cases only want to have it).
And this particular friend did, like she always do, she's magically first to lead the way and make thoose finds way before my mortal self.
I remember her in the hallway, elegantly strapping them on in the color Nude, after a bit of resarch know as T-Strap Sky High perfectly paired with her summer sun-tanned legs and a coral flowery vintage dress and a long knitted off white cardi..It was with a laid back 'okay I'll show you' sort of attitude that she displayed her latest finds, 3 pairs I might add randomly placed by the door on her bright and shiny floor tiles. Secretly while leaning against the taxi cab's rain drizzled window I just knew it, I've had to have them. I plotted how I would ,strutt them up and down the main street of Stockholm, Drottninggatan in a comfortable and worldy way just like I've had them forever and long before they where ever IN..In fact, they would look even better bit roughed up and dirty, if someone asked when I bought them I would chuckle 'these ones, oh I've had them forever'..
In the Autumn I would pair them with chunky knits and a short trenchcoat maybe even a beret in that french vintage way and with that said have endless of use of the clogs, right? Well, I always need to motivate a purchase like this..I've been known to say to myself, just divide the amount with the number of times I plan to use the 'coat' for example..The more I'm planning to use it the cheaper it will be, this which is sort of a lie to myself really works and forces me to really get some use out of my more expensive pieces..250 US later they where mine, all mine and forced to be my new precious!
so..lucky you.. in the era of internet you don't have to go to Sweden to get them even if the shipping might be as a plane ticket (they are sooo heavy) it's avaliable to order online, stop by at Revolve clothing or Swedish Hasbeens website.
Possible to buy from Revolve Clothing, the latest Autumn Collection fro 2010 Have a look at the Spring/Summer Collection that is still avaliable at Swedish Hasbeens.com, I like thoose designs even better..
This is their Story: One summer day in 2006, 300 pairs of red, white and black beautiful clogs from the 70?s were found in the basement of an old clog factory in a neighboring village and was brought to Stockholm. For all the people that shared the love and appreciation for wooden shoes along with the founders--Swedish Hasbeens was born
