Dr. Martens celebrates the enigmatic designs by the iconic postmodern artist Jean-Michel Basquiat as the latest collaboration for the month. Basquiat was recognized for his captivating imagery and epigrams as he thrived during the 20th century. Within only two decades, he has created a strong influence in the artistic space and left behind extraordinary artwork that marks his own legacy.
Dr. Martens celebrates this and adorns motifs of the artist's work on the 1460 and 1461 boot models. This includes bold scrawling lines and contrasting tonal palettes informed by symbols and numbers. This results in a graffiti-like aesthetic, which translates further with the "Beat Bop" detail that is seen on the Original 8-eye boot and "Dustheads" on the 1461 boot.
