Step into Rebellion and Rhythm: Unpacking the Smiley x Dr. Martens 1460 CollaborationNews
Devoted. Defiant. Dancing - Our first collaboration with Dr Martens launches today, bringing together the shared positivity of music and the rebellious optimism of the dancefloor on a global scale.
For many years, Dr. Martens has been a staple in subcultural scenes, making a bold statement. Their iconic footwear has been favoured by individuals who share a rebellious spirit, like punks, rebels, and radicals. Back in the 80s and 90s, the Smiley® symbol became synonymous with subcultures centred around electronic music, where acceptance and pure happiness prevailed.
Together, this collection embodies the timeless and iconic elements of DMs, coupled with defiant optimism. Featuring several standout pieces, including the iconic 1460 boot with an all-over Smiley deboss detail and yellow upper stitching. A reimagined version of the 1461 3-eye shoe, crafted from black Smooth leather and adorned with a bold DM’s yellow Smiley print on both the vamp and backstrap. The versatile mule: Jorge, constructed from black Long Napped suede and featuring a Bouclé Smiley badge, along with Smiley branded sock artwork. Also included is scaled-down version of the 1460 boot together with two accessory options: a distinctive circular Smiley branded face bag and a pair of Smiley branded socks.
