The ‘Liberty London For Dr. Martens Floral Prints’ collaboration brings
together two beloved British institutions. Both brands stand for quality
and craft but at the heart of this collaboration is an engaging discord.
Liberty London brings to mind nature, beauty and a refined intricacy, at
odds with the tough and rebellious ethos of Dr. Martens.
The collaboration is limited and offers the romantically
named ‘Strawberry Thief’, originally created by the world famous textile
designer William Morris in 1883, which has become one of the most
coveted and iconic Liberty archive prints. As part of a revolutionary group
of animal designs for the 1800s, the fabric depicts a naughty bird stealing
berries – hence the name. The design team at Dr. Martens have created a
contemporary twist on this iconic design by incorporating the smooth leather
colors found on the brand’s traditional boots and shoes.
