HOT NEWS: DR. MARTENS COLLABORATES WITH RICK OWENS!
DEVIANCE REDEFINED — DR. MARTENS AND RICK OWENS EXPLORE THE BOUNDARIES OF SUBVERSIVE SILHOUETTES WITH THE LATEST COLLABORATION FEATURING DESIGNS FROM 14XX.
Rick Owens is the first partner to collaborate within Dr. Martens progressive new category, 14XX. The latest collection includes an outsole from the Beta Pack launched in December 2023.
The creative relationship between Dr. Martens and Rick Owens has been well-established since our first union in 2021. A string of sought-after collections explores the sculptural potential of Dr. Martens silhouettes — combined with Rick Owens’s signature lacing and penchant for architectural boots.
“I LOVE USING OUR COLLABORATION TO CELEBRATE RAW AND FEROCIOUS SELF- INVENTED ABANDON LIKE THAT OF SISSY MISFIT, BLASTING TECHNO WITH TRANS POWER. DR MARTENS ALWAYS REPRESENTED INSPIRATIONAL SUBCULTURE TO ME AND I LIKE HONOURING THAT TRADITION.”Rick Owens
Our latest collection builds on these foundations with an injection of innovation from our design incubator, 14XX. The silhouettes stand on the new DMXL sole, which dropped at the end of 2023. Formed from a lightweight EVA compound base with resilient PVC pods, the inflated sole is an exaggerated interpretation of our classic construction.
It’s on this new platform where the new Dr. Martens x Rick Owens capsule comes alive — first on the 1460 DMXL Megalace boot. The inflated contours of the sole are echoed in exaggerated height across the boot’s upper, extending the size of the tongue. Built from unexpectedly supple Lunar leather to contrast the structure of the boot. Secured with a signature pearl megalace pattern anchored by brushed silver hardware. Pearl extends into the heel loop, signed with Dr. Martens script. The sole is secured with our unmistakable yellow welt stitching.
The collaboration is brought to life by London-based Turkish producer, performer, and DJ, Sissy Misfit. She’s known for her unique blend of electronic, industrial, hardcore, and pop music, and her innovative sound and conceptual performance style are the perfect pairing for the next creative phase of Dr. Martens x Rick Owens.
Dr. Martens x Rick Owens drops 8th February 2024 at drmartens.com, rickowens.eu and select partners.
