DR. MARTENS REUNITES WITH RICK OWENS TO RESHAPE ICONIC SILHOUETTES
The collaboration between Dr. Martens and Rick Owens is a fusion of grunge culture. The underground, aesthetic, and gender-neutral silhouettes of the grunge icon complement Dr. Martens authentic, forward-thinking boots. They form the basis for a new explosive collection.
The meteoric rise of RICK OWENS in the ’90s coincided with the grunge renaissance for Dr. Martens: a decade defined by deconstructed closets and self-expression. The spirit of energetic non-conformity drives this new collaboration, focusing on the iconic 1460 and 1918 18-eyelet boot.
The collection retains the unmistakable characteristics of Dr. Martens DNA, in addition to the aesthetic silhouette shaped by Owen.
The 1460 8-eye boot is transformed in soft, heavy black Lunar leather with contrasting, jumbo-thick pearl laces and extra-wide eyelets with a matte silver finish.
The Rick Owens 1918 is an unorthodox statement boot that takes center stage: the entire upper is made of striking platinum Hair-On leather. The boot features pearl laces, with eyelets and hooks in a matte silver finish. Both boots feature oversized, raised tongues and heavy side zippers and are adorned with striking wrap laces.
The DR. MARTENS x RICK OWENS collection was released on October 14th and is available via drmartens.com. The Rick Owens 1918 statement boot is priced at €679 and 1460 at €349.
