Our creative relationship with Raf Simons has spanned more than a decade. As we are both heavily influenced by music, art and youth subcultures, another collaboration with Simons was a seamless reunion. Originally starting out in furniture design, Simons moved to menswear in 1995. Redefining the relationship between
pop culture, art and fashion design, Raf Simons made waves across the fashion scene. And he’s still making waves today.
Never one to conform, for the Remastered project, Simons has covered our Smooth leather upper with a series of anarchistic punk-style nickel rings. Alongside being inspired by the customisation trend during the New Romantic/ Punk club scene of the late 70s, the placement of the rings is also a nod to the structure of a mid-century design piece — an homage to Raf Simons’ background in detail-driven furniture design. A dual-branded Dr. Martens x Raf Simons logo is embossed on the boot’s ankle cuff to add a finishing detail. With Simon’s passion for Dr. Martens and his flare for channeling youth subcultural aesthetic, the result fuses a nod to rebellious punk culture with avant-garde design.
