Yohji Yamamoto‘s Y’s and Dr. Martens continue their longstanding relationship to release four new models of classic silhouettes for Fall/Winter 2021. The Y’s x Dr. Martens 10-EYE BOOT MOON FABRIC is the first issue ahead of other models.
Yamamoto taps into traditional craftmanship and dresses the classic 1490 10-eye Mid Calf Boot in premium materials from British luxury fabric maker MOON. Established in 1837, MOON is the only fully integrated production fabric manufacturer in the UK, and one of the few left in the world that handles the end to end operations from wool processing to fabric finishing. While incorporating the latest production technology into new designs, the company has maintained an old-fashioned manufacturing spirit that reminds us of a time when beautiful tweed fabrics were homespun.
This unisex boot is composed of a dark gray and brown herringbone upper with smooth black leather panels on the toe box and below the collar. Classic Dr. Martens yellow welt stitching, “Air Wair” pull tab, and a functional back zip are included.
The Y’s x Dr. Martens 10-EYE BOOT in MOON fabric priced at ¥55,000 yen (approximately $496 USD) is now accepting pre-orders at THE SHOP YOHJI YAMAMOTO and will release on July 9th online and at select Y’s stores in Japan.
