This is the first glimpse we get at the upcoming collaboration between Dr. Martens and Jean Paul Gaultier. Talk about a wet dream.
Punching holes into old-school work boots has never been so fucking fabulous! On his blog, Andrew Bunny revealed nothing more than a close up shot of some punky lattice work on black and white standard 8 hold Doc's with the enviable JPG trade mark under the standard Dr. Martens embossed stamp. The only qualm I have about these is the smell of bare feet that will no doubtedly be left lingering in them by crazed fashionistas stomping up and down the streets of a fashion capital near you. Who would want to hinder the facade with silly old socks underneath?
I cannot wait to see what the rest of the collaboration will bring, let alone get my greedy little hands on a pair. Pity they'll only (maybe, word has it) be available at the Gaultier store in Paris. It's also a shame that in reality, I probably won't be able to afford these puppies even when it's 20 years from now and I'm battling it out in an overpriced eBay auction.
