Refined rebel: The Dr. Martens Workwear collection
Celebrating free-spirited individualism since its inception, Dr. Martens has always been our go-to for shoes that wear as well as their tenacious attitude. This fall/winter sees the launch of the Workwear collection that introduces a refined edge to the well-loved icons while keeping true to their rebel DNA.
Kicking off the launch is a dynamic campaign fronted by artist and stylist Mitzi Lorenz, a pioneer of the rebel subculture scene in London. Documented by Jamie Morgan and Barry Kamen, the campaign is a collection of extraodinary images that bring together diverse personalities who stand out from the crowd.
For the ladies, the new Adelaide is a classic Oxford that's equal parts feminine and androgynous. A tasseled slip-on moccasin is also available for those favouring a more vampy subculture vibe. Both versions come with mid-sized heels and air-cushioned soles — practicality at its best and ideal for the workplace.
The gents have the Henley, a newly minted collection for this season with a versatility, durability and comfort that doubles for work and formal events. With a slimmer sole, heel and an overall narrower style, the Henley is the best of both worlds: Padded with the original Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole, abrasion and slip resistant coupled with a modern sleek silhouette in various premium leather finishes. Dare to wear a pair and establish some serious street cred at that.
The Workwear collection for both men and women are available at all Dr. Martens stores from 19 October.
