Dr. Martens Takes It To The Streets With Stüssy

26.10.2016 | Blog , Culture , Fashion | BY:

Famed for their innate understanding and reflection of youth culture, it’s no surprise that Dr. Martens have teamed up with cult streetwear brand Stüssy to release a new capsule collection. Not only are both brands emblematic of rebellion and the underground scene, but they both also emphasise quality and clothes made to last.

Available in stores now, the collaboration sees classic Dr. Martens silhouettes remixed with signature Stussy vibes: think cheetah print panels, pebble grain textured leather uppers and a mega combination of independent spirit. Get ’em while you can.

Why footwear giant Dr. Martens teamed up with Norse Projects

05.05.2016 | Fashion | BY:

While in the first instance the idea of a non-conformist British punk institution aligning forces with a Scandi-infused, purist brand may seem a jarring fit, the new collaboration between Dr. Martens and Norse Projects actually makes total sense. Together, their designs participate  as part of a wider conversation, one that draws without end, on the study of contemporary culture and shows an avid interest that often oscillates between both modern and sub-cultural references.

The re-worked version of the Dr. Martens 3-Eye Steed is no exception. The mens shoes has been crafted for the first time in a rich suede texture, that comes in three colour ways (black, white and oxblood). It is also detailed with quiet sportswear technicalities—the added insole, the padded tongue and elasticated nylon straps, are all quite clearly traits of practicality brought forward by Dr. Martens Copenhagen-based counterpart, Norse Projects.

Staying true to heritage is a mantra that remains close to everything Dr. Martens does and this collaboration does not waver from that. Like the rest of the Steed collection, the 3-Eyed Steed has been manufactured using the original process of industrial manufacture, a technique that has been in practice from 1st April, 1960—when the first pair of Dr. Martens rolled off the production line in Wollaston, England.

The Dr. Martens x Norse Projects Steed collaboration (from £200) is available online now and in-store at END, Newcastle from May 7th.

Dr Martens X colette

16.03.2016 | Fashion | BY:

Dr Martens have headed some successful collaborative projects lately, like their alliance with Supreme for an Autumn Winter 2015 special collection. This Spring, they will release another collaborative effort, in the form of a low-cut take on the brand’s high-top classic.

Towards the end of March, Dr Martens will welcome their limited edition shoe with cult Parisian fashion store colette. The design incorporates both classic design and modernity, resulting in a fresh unisex style. The design is a special take on their Dr Martens classic 1461 3-Eye boot. The simple shoe is a low-top model, made from soft black leather with an all-over glossy polka dot print and bursts of colour added with the blue dipped lace tips, blue stitching and blue detail at the back of the shoe.


The Dr Martens X colette collaboration was released exclusively in the Parisan colette store on the 27th February, and is due to become available in the UK on the 26th March. The shoe has already sold out on the colette website and is expected to do the same in the UK. The special edition shoes will be sold at £115 from selected Dr Martens outlets such as The Goodhood Store, End. and Hervia.

A. Sauvage x Dr. Martens

04.10.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Dr Martens is shining a more polished shoe these days, thanks to the brand’s collaboration with menswear designer A. Sauvage.

The  two-years-young label created a more elegant take on what is perched atop those famous, light air cushioned soles: colours of midnight blue, white and black, in fabrics ranging from patent leather to woven kente silk.

A very street venture for the Mayfair-based label and a rather high-end approach for the punkish footwear brand, this unisex range is a prime example of what happens when you think outside of the (shoe) box.

The DSM Takeover

14.10.2011 | Art , Blog , Fashion | BY:

Dover Street Market is engulfed by a variety of installations this week, all in celebration of London’s Frieze Art Fair.

The work of Brazilian/French artist duo Vivid Astro Focus encases the ground floor entrance, creating a 360-degree tunnel of vibrant paintings, which the DSM team is calling it “one of the greatest installations we have ever done”. Three stories upwards resides an exhibition of creations by heel-less shoe God/Daphne Guinness favourite Noritaka Tatehana and New Yorker ceramicist/sculptor James Salaiz.

The store is also exclusively hosting Dr Marten’s Bespoke in its basement event space, where the iconic boots can be completely customised, right down to the last eyelet.

If you ever needed an excuse to get lost in Dover Street Market for a few hours, this is it.
