We haven’t heard much to note from the iconic British footwear brand Dr Martens of late, deciding to take their foot off the paddle when it comes to great Design lead Collaborations. Since the like of their amazing partnerships with the likes of A.Sauvage, RAF Simons and Yohji Yamamoto. But boy are they coming back with a bang for this season, first up they have launched a tie up with globally renowned & unique American apparel brand Engineered Garments.
Founded in 1999 by vintage-clothing-hoarder, Daiki Suzuki, Engineered Garments takes its name from a pattern maker’s comment that these clothes were more engineered than designed. Taking cues from his extensive archive of sportswear, workwear and highly-functional military garb, each piece from Engineered Garments has more details than you’d ever notice. For their Dr Martens project they have transformed the legendary low top ‘1461’ style, Suzuki incorporates an asymmetrical vamp and eyelets system. The concept has been built with the intention to fuse and craft the very essence of both brands through a unique design and premium lens.
Next up we see the fruits of their collaborative loins with the hottest thing in fashion right now, Demna Gvasalia’s Parisian fashion collective, Vetements. With their shared non-conformist attitude and appreciation of expert craftsmanship Gvasalia gas interpreted a 10-eye black leather boot with a side zip entry to keep the laceless look functional.
