We would like to send out a very big WELCOME to our new Sydney Strand Store Manager -Jane. We are super excited to have you as the newest member of the funkis family.
Name: Jane Elmgreen
What’s your favourite pair of clogs from the funkis range?
I love the 950’s in black nubuck, but I think the 949’s will be my next purchase for the warmer weather.
What do you like the most about working at funkis?
The people. Both the staff and the customers are all really lovely, and share a real appreciation for the Funkis brand and aesthetic. It’s great to be a part of such a unique Australian brand.
Where is the best place to eat in Sydney?
Ohhhh so hard! At the moment for me its ‘Lentil As Anything’ in Newtown. This has a great ethos behind it and supports the local community, plus its delicious!
What’s your favourite colour? Red
What’s your spirit animal?
Unicorn!? Haha or something nocturnal like a bat
If you had a super power what would it be?
To never feel tired! And also fly! haha
What’s your favourite quote?
I have so many, but I like this one:
“chaos, leave me never. Keep me wild and keep me free, so that my brokenness will be the only beauty the world will see.” – R.M Drake

We are pleased to announce that funkis is now a featured brand on NET-A-PORTER - the worlds premier online luxury fashion retailer.
We recently interviewed Ida Petersson who is the head footwear buyer at Net-A-Porter and asked her how she wears her clogs.
Give us a brief description of your role at NET-A-PORTER.COM and what is your average day like?
The best thing about my job is that no two days are ever the same! I can be in Milan, Paris or New York for appointments with our brands, to selecting products from next season's collections, to analysing our sales with my merchandiser in the office and preparing company presentations.
What’s the best thing about working for NET-A-PORTER.COM?
I get to work with shoes – my favourite category and travel across the globe and work with an amazingly talented in-house team.
What’s your favourite style of clogs from the new FUNKIS x NET-A-PORTER collection and why?
I particularly love the light tan sandals. They are extremely comfortable and the neutral colour goes with everything in my wardrobe.
How do you wear your funkis clogs?
For a chic dressed-up look, I’ll wear them with my Valentino or Dolce & Gabbana mini A-line dresses. If I’m being super casual, I’ll pair them with my Frame Denim dungarees and a slouchy white J.Crew tee.
What is your idea of the perfect weekend outfit?
Ideally spent by the seaside in a Melissa Odabash or Talitha peasant blouse, denim cut offs and my funkis sandals.
Finish this sentence ‘real style is…?'
Someone who is not afraid to experiment but always stays true to who they are.
What do you think is the top footwear trend for next season?
We have seen a lot of late 60s and early 70s inspiration – they’re my favourite trends. Chunky platforms, gogo boots and clogs are dominating, so I’ll be wearing my Funkis throughout next season.
I follow so many it is hard to choose just one, but I really enjoy Sofis snapshots as I can read it in my native language- Swedish.

Midsommer is a traditional Swedish holiday celebrating the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, This is known as the summer solstice.
The successful midsommer never-ending lunch party formula involves flowers in your hair, dancing around a pole, singing songs while drinking unsweetened, flavoured schnapps and downing a whole load of pickled herring, sill served with delightful new potatoes, chives and sour cream.
