A-COLD-WALL* & Dr. Martens for Spring/Summer 2023
In the fifth iteration of the brands long-standing partnership, A-COLD-WALL* & Dr. Martens revisit the silhouette debuted in their Autumn/Winter 2021 collection. Global early access available at a-cold-wall.com on Thursday, 25th May 15:00 BST and select retail partners on Friday, 26th May.
Showcasing the Brutalist design language that has defined their collaborative output since the inaugural project in 2020, a new approach to materiality has been explored. Manifesting in a soft tumble-aged, water-resistant, nubuck leather the ACW* 1461 Gehry Shoe continues to stand on a ridged, double-height rubber sole with a centralised zip fastening system.
1461 Gehry Shoe in Slate Grey Nubuck Leather
Referencing A-COLD-WALL*’s industrial palette, the Slate Grey iteration has a translucent iced sole with tonal ecru welt stitching. Adorned on the heel is the ACW* branding applied in silver foiled print. Moulded brutalist sidewalls and a centralised zip system further articulate an evolved interpretation of this classic silhouette.
A-COLD-WALL* & Dr. Martens for Autumn/Winter 2022
Obstruct. Function. Innovate. The latest volume of this partnership expresses a modernist interpretation of signature Dr. Martens styles, whilst studying the relationship between light and shade.
1461 Gehry Shoe in Onyx Nubuck Leather
The Onyx colourway is an all black iteration accented only by ACW* branding in a silver foiled print and Dr. Marten’s trademark welt yellow stitching. Stacked on a Smoke Bex sole are subtle architectural details that speak to a A-COLD-WALL*’s design language in the form of gunmetal rivets and sculptural side panels.
