Dr. Martens and Marc Jacobs have reunited. It’s been 27 years since we first joined forces. And our shared passion for expressing individuality draws us back together again and again. The man who helped elevate grunge from music into fashion, Marc Jacobs turned the industry on its head.
Sending his models charging down the runway in slip dresses and Docs boots, his 1993 Perry Ellis collection was one of the most controversial to date. He had everyone’s attention. And he’s demanding it again with our latest 1460 Remastered boot.
To celebrate DM’s 60th anniversary, we’ve reignited our long-running creative relationship. Our 100% vegan 1460 Marc Jacobs boot is inspired by our shared history of DIY, customisation, and rocking the status quo. Docs chats to the Marc Jacobs team about how the 1460, what unites our brands and how they describe themselves.
