When it comes clogs, fashion attitudes have evolved. I used to think clogs were for euro-minded Gen X girls. You know, the earthy/alt girl-type. Marimekko graphics, short bangs and colorful plastic cat eye frames all come to mind - kinda like Laura from High Fidelity (BTW, that movie is 15 years old?!).
Or perhaps it's just my attitude on clogs that has evolved.
The clogs coming out of San Francisco's Bryr Studio fit into my ideal urban, sophisticated and no-nonsense wardrobe. They are so good, they'd be capsule wardrobe status, if I did a capsule wardrobe. They belong on a self-confident, sexy and modern city lady (I aspire to be this lady). Sure, the wood still grounds them in the earthy camp, but the color options and silhouettes take clogs to a more modern place. Here are two I can't stop ogling on my laptop screen.
And I love the story of how this little shoe label came to be: a woman who quit her corporate 9-5 design gig to learn how to make shoes and connect back to actually making something. <3
