Casual Friday: Anya Hindmarch's Olympic touch for Green Flash
Dunlop's Green Flash is a classic that normally we wouldn't want anyone to mess with, but it's safe in the hands of Anya Hindmarch, who has created this delightful 2012 edition. Featuring the subtle colours of the Olympic rings in the eyelets, it's a really clever design that celebrates what has become a hugely iconic British trainer.
Much of the shoe is completely unchanged from the original, but there are a few unmistakable Hindmarch flourishes beyond the colourful rings. Her bow logo is incorporated into the tongue, on small white studs and at the back of the shoe, and the shoes are presented in their own beautiful collector's edition box.
If you'd like to pick up a pair of these one-off commemorative shoes, they are available on the Anya Hindmarch site for £120 - quite a reasonable price for such a covet-able item, we think! It's a home-grown classic with a twist that we can't help but love.
