The unique styles of two iconic fashion and menswear names combine with the new collection from the American North West’s Pendleton Woolen Mills and British footwear classic Dr Martens.
What might surprise some is is that the two are closer linked geographically than you might think. Dr Martens have for a long time based their American operations in Portland, Oregon – a territory more than familiar to Pendleton.
The four piece collaboration utilises an exclusive Pendleton woven called ‘Pagosa Springs’, inspired by the legend of a deadly plague which once infected a Ute Indian tribe – the name is derived from ‘Pagosah’ meaning ‘healing waters’. It features on the upper of two Dr Martens 8-hole boots, in black an cherry red and each is paired with a Dr Martens satchel constructed from the same combination of Pendleton wool and leather.
The video below gives a unique insight into the production of a piece like this, from start to finish. The collection goes on sale at Dr Martens stores next months, check out some further looks below.
