Dr. Martens x Beams x Babylon collab has landed

Celebrating its 60th birthday in April this year, Dr. Martens has invited 12 pioneering brands, labels and designers to express what the Docs brand signifies to them in a series of collaboration designs titled 1460: Remastered. The third style in the project – a collaboration between Japanese heavyweights Beams and LA label Babylon  drops Saturday 28 March.

The 12 remastered boots will be dropping (one per month) throughout 2020. The new Beams x Babylon release follows on from collabs with streetwear heavyweights A Bathing Ape® in January, and iconic designer Raf Simons last month.

The new Beams x Babylon boot mixes Babylon’s skate aesthetic with Beams’ more understated design. It features Beams’ classic orange colour detailing throughout, including the boot’s laces, heel loop and welt stitching, and an orange stripe on the back. The boots also include a triple-branded lace charm in orange and beige, “Chaos” embossing on the side and Babylon’s flipped peace sign on the tongue.

The exclusive Dr. Martens x Beams x Babylon 1460 remastered boots will be available in strictly limited numbers from Masons, Subtype, Double Double and Highs and Lows.

The first Dr. Martens 1460 boots rolled off the production line on 1st April 1960 (1.4.60). They were designed for workers. Built to be tougher and more comfortable than any footwear on the market at the time. In the decades since, the simple silhouette has been adopted, shaped and subverted by countless subcultures and freethinkers. Stomped on stages, streets and runways. While always staying true to its original construction.

60 years on, the boot means something different to everyone who laces it up. To mark its anniversary and kick-start a new decade, Dr. Martens asked the 12 pioneering brands, labels and designers to answer a simple seven-word brief: ‘What does the 1460 mean to you?’

Docs has worked together with each collaborator to reinterpret and remix their Original boot – through each brand’s distinct creative lens. Each one-off edition of the 1460 will reflect the partner’s personal history with Dr. Martens as well as Docs’ core DNA. All 12 brands have a long running connection with the Docs brand, and many have been wearing the boot since their teens.

The next 1460: Remastered will be announced soon. Stay tuned.

R.M.WILLIAMS ANNOUNCES FIRST FEMALE AMBASSADOR

Australian Actress Phoebe Tonkin has been announced as R.M.Williams’ newest Ambassador, honouring the brands incredible craftswomen, as the first female given the official title in the brands 88-year history. A celebration of strength and key female personalities at the heart of R.M.Williams both past and present, Phoebe joins Boots Ambassador Hugh Jackman as international face and spokesperson in their Undeniable Character campaign.

Launched with Jackman in 2019, Undeniable Character brings to life the enduring quality of R.M.Williams through the stories of its people, process and products. Honouring the tenets of grit, tenacity and a pioneering spirit, Undeniable Character champions the qualities within that mirror the characteristics of Reginald Murray Williams himself.

R.M.Williams are thrilled to have a female addition to the Undeniable Character family that celebrates the strong women who have been part of the brand since the beginning. As one of Australia’s new wave of personalities, Phoebe represents a new generation of Australian spirit and the very traits which define the brands’ DNA – strength, tenacity, exploration and humility.

Born in Sydney, Tonkin grew up fascinated by storytelling, dreaming of journalism then finding an outlet in acting that saw her move to Los Angeles at 22 to pursue her dream.

This uniquely grounded yet determined spirit led to key roles in acclaimed movie and TV series, both in Australia and abroad, including STAN series Bloom and the International Emmy-nominated series Safe Harbour. Her extensive lead role credits on US television include CW series The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, as well as guest lead roles in The Affair, Stalker, Westworld and The Secret Circle. Phoebe commenced her career as Cleo Sertori in three seasons of the internationally acclaimed series H20: Just Add Water, for which she received an AFI Best Actress in a TV Drama nomination.

Phoebe’s feature film credits include lead roles in Bait, Take Down and The Ever After. Phoebe has just completed her writing and directing debut with her short film Furlough, a passion project that has allowed her to bring her love for storytelling to the forefront in a new and impassioned way, and in perfect timing for her new role as R.M.Williams Undeniable Character.

Of the partnership, Phoebe says, “R.M.Williams is a brand I’ve grown up with and embodies all that I love about being Australian – from the commitment to preserving and championing our land to the culture of friendship we are lucky to have. While I’ve been coined as the first female ambassador, the truth is that there are hundreds of hardworking females and undeniable characters which have fed into the rich history of the brand. 

R.M.Williams commitment to exposing and fostering both new and past undeniable characters was something which was immediately appealing. My craft values storytelling above all else so I was hugely flattered to be part of that.
