As a brand with roots in sports lifestyle, UNDRCRWN’s rich palette of products have easily made their way from the courts to the street – products which have, over time, become coveted in fashion and basketball culture. In Winter 2010 they introduce a brand new men’s capsule-collection titled “D.O.C.” The Apparel Range, conceived by Dustin Canalin (UNDRCRWN Creative Director), focusing mainly on contemporary “Cut & Sew” pieces. In addition, there is a co-branded footwear collaboration with Rockport.
To kick-off the capsule, we’re releasing the limited edition “D.O.C x Rockport Delta Boot.” Truly for the aspirational at heart, the shoe features an array of luxe materials. The dark grey Melton wool & black suede upper is reminiscent of fabrics used on premium varsity jackets while the black and white gingham lining counter-balances the darkness of the shoe. Giving it the sense of luxury found in tailored suits and handcrafted luggage, pinstripes were also added to the upper. A butter soft leather heel and embossed leather patches on the tongue further compliment the refined aesthetic. To lighten up the design, a pop of color was incorporated through the use of pink-waxed laces. Hand sewn elements and purple stitching found on the heel mimic the construction of apparel and provides the perfect finishing touch to tie it all together.
Applying a timeless design to the Rockport silhouette results in a clean, luxurious and fashionable boot. With only 100 pairs available globally, the Fall/Winter 2010 “D.O.C x Rockport” collaboration will start retailing on Friday November 27th. The shoe will also be available for purchase at UNDRCRWN.com in limited quantities.
