This editorial is taken from the winter 2021 issue of Dazed. Head here to get your copy.
In September, Dr. Martens teamed up with creative collective deadHYPE to host Tough As You – a party and live art installation in Berlin, where tattoo artist Gaël Cleinow added personalised touches to the footwear brand’s iconic leather designs. Marking the collaboration, photographer Ewen Spencer and stylist Imruh Asha have joined together to showcase some of Cleinow’s creations, unveiling a youthful editorial for Dazed’s winter 2021 issue.
Displaying platform boots updated with orange flames and dollar signs etched into black leather loafers, the editorial provides a closer look at the collab – which is worn outside of school, on a basketball court, in a church, and more.
