Have you met Colorlite™?

Just when you thought Crocs couldn’t get any better, we’ve reinvented comfort with a new revolutionary material – Colorlite™.

Inspired by the paper folding art of origami, the Colorlite™ collection is so innovative, it’s constructed from just one piece of our Croslite™ material! Yep, you read that correctly – a single sheet is flattened and folded into a shoe! It doesn’t get any more revolutionary than that!

Origami anyone? Colorlite™ construction in action.

ColorLite™ material is an even softer, lighter, more colourful way to get Crocs comfort. It’s a Crocs kind of leather that you won’t find anywhere else! As amazed as we are with this new technology? Find out more here!

Check out the handcrafted Colorlite™ range in-store and online now! Available in a women’s loafer and ballet flat as well as a men’s loafer.

You won’t believe they’re Crocs!

Splendour in the Grass

Drum roll please! Splendour in the Grass has officially arrived! Byron Bay is set to be taken over by music lovers from around the country for the next 3 days.

And at this point, temperatures are looking, well, rather splendid! A top of 21 today and tomorrow, and 18 degrees expected for Sunday. A few showers will appear here and there, but it wouldn’t be a music festival without muddy shoes and outfits, right?

If there is one thing you shouldn’t have forgotten on your packing list, it’s appropriate footwear!  Flips are definitely a no-go, for obvious reasons! Wet, muddy feet plus the increased chance of a minor foot injury is not ideal. Opt for some wellie boots…they’re comfy, easy to clean, and a signature festival look. We’ve wet-weather tested our Rainfloe Boots.

2015 Sneak Peek

It’s sales conference time at the Crocs HQ so I thought I’d give you an insight into where we’ve drawn inspiration from for our 2015 line.

Our design team filters global market, consumer and social trends into the unique and innovative styles that personify Crocs.

World leading fashion trend forecaster WGSN has given the following analysis of colour trends for 2015: “vitamin-enriched shades show a real burst of fresh colour…contrasted with super-washed-out pastels, iridescent metallics, calming greens and new blues.”

Here’s a snapshot of the key colours that have been forecasted for footwear and accessories:

color-chart

Inspired by these colour trends, our 2015 line also draws inspiration from our unique brand heritage “born on a boat, raised in the mountains”.

Born as a simple, comfortable boat shoe, this time round our journey takes us to one of the most talked about countries – Brazil: current host of the World Cup and 2016 Olympics!

In this trend blues transcend a tropical and beachy feel.

We draw more inspiration from the mountains of our motherland – Boulder, Colorado. Snow-capped mountains are replaced with the rich earthy tones of desert mountains reflecting the dominance of tribal influences on the runway.

In this trend we see oranges take on spicy and peachy hues.

Who’s excited about our 2015 line? We certainly are!

June Gloom no more!

Winter may be here but it doesn’t mean we have to stay cooped up on the couch with a cozy blanket and hot chocolate (although I can’t deny that I’m doing this right now and am rather enjoying it!).

I really don’t enjoy Winter, but compared to the freezing temperatures I’ve experienced in Europe, we really don’t have much to complain about in Australia. And considering our scorching summers, I actually think some things are better left to our cooler months – like my weekend adventure on Puffing Billy.

This century-old steam train still runs its original mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook through the Dandenong Ranges.

I enjoyed a three-course luncheon while enjoying picturesque views of the Ranges and a stop off at Lake Emerald. There’s truly something calming about being by the lake with the sound of rain lightly falling onto your umbrella and autumn leaves crunching beneath your boots. My Equestrians gave me the perfect mix of comfort and style for negotiating puddles and muddy lakeside trails.

June gloom no more!

Trend Alert: The Fair Isle Print

Nothing says ‘hello Winter’ quite like the Fair Isle knit – cosy, comfortable and perfect for adding a distinctive style to your cold-weather wardrobe.

This classic pattern, which gets its name from a tiny island north of Scotland, is no longer just reserved for weekend getaways to the slopes (or Nanna’s wardrobe), but a casual, everyday winter look that you can easily pull together.

The Fair Isle knit gained popularity back in 1921 after being worn in public by the Prince of Wales. So if you want to look like royalty… just kidding…. but since then, the traditional pattern has expanded to a wide range of clothing and accessories. Even Crocs has caught onto the trend with their Thermalucent Boot!

 I’ve rounded up some of my favourite Fair Isle prints below.
