Dr. Martens 1460 x Needles

Needles founder Keizo Shimizu has played a big part in altering the course of Japanese fashion. And with his lifelong enthusiasm for DM’s and his knack for taking old pieces and reinvigorating them with modernistic styling, the unchanged-in-six-decades design of the 1460 boot is the ideal outlet.
A clash between Needles’ contemporary branding and the deep-set heritage of Dr Martens 1460 boot, the latest collaboration sees 1960 meet 2020. Taking Needles signature purple track pant stripe, we see Shimizu reimagine an icon that’s remained the same since it first rolled off the production line. With Needles’ trademark ‘Papillon’ butterfly — inspired by the movie of the same name — floating above the iconic yellow stitching, it’s a unification of two brand beacons.

The Dr. Martens 1460 Boot x Needles launches at HANON ONLINE Friday 21st of August at 23:00 BST.
