Rick Owens gives Dr Martens a dark new update
British footwear brand Dr. Martens has recently teamed up with brutalist grunge icon Rick Owens for a stellar one of a kind collaboration where high fashion meets durability. As brands that have been in the industry for decades, the two have finally decided to merge their aesthetics with a two part collaboration set to be released in March and May. The collection is an exploration of Rick Owens’ dark underground aesthetic applied to Dr. Martens’ classic silhouette. The first drop features the 1460 Bex platform sole boot — which gained popularity in the 90’s — with Rick Owens’ signature dramatic lacing system. The update gives the boot a new and improved dark glam silhouette as it’s crafted in Black Smooth leather, dual-branded sock Linder, taupe heel loop and an additional pair of black laces. Even the finishing tells a story of the two stories with taupe and intricate yellow double welt stitching.
