DR. MARTENS X BEAMS X BABYLON
EAST MEETS WEST: DR. MARTENS ANNOUNCE LATEST 1460 REMASTERED BOOT AS 3-WAY COLLABORATION WITH BEAMS AND BABYLON.
Dr. Martens have joined forces with Beams and Babylon for the third 1460 Remastered collaboration. Marking 60 years of rebellion and pushing boundaries, they’re celebrating them shared ethos for music and alternative subcultures. For the third collaboration, not one but two world-renowned creatives have remastered DM most iconic silhouette. Babylon. Where brand meets band. And Beams. The pioneers of modern minimalism. Previously, DM collaborations with Japanese lifestyle brand Beams have been clean and minimalistic. But by throwing the hardcore-skate stylings of LA label Babylon into the mix, we’re cranking our shared punk heritage up to the max.
THE COLLECTION DROPS 28.03 AND WILL BE AVAILABLE AT DRMARTENS.COM AND SELECT PARTNERS.

Taking a West Coast alternative skate aesthetic and clashing it with a futuristic Japanese lens, this special one-off edition of the 1460 boot was inspired by the rude boys of the 60s. The double stripe down the heel nods to the subculture’s iconic uniform braces. But here it’s updated in Beams’ unmistakable orange – a colour synonymous with the brand’s clean, minimalist, modern collections. The same orange appears in the triple colour laces, as well as our signature scripted heel loop and welt laceless if they want to, and designed to hold the boots in place at a RWPM gig or show. They’re marked by a triple-branded circle lace charm and embossed with “Chaos” on the quarters – a Babylon slogan and nod to the clash of attitudes and eras that make up the boot. The same logo is partially hidden three brands’ shared DNA, and arrive in bespoke packaging that commemorates Dr. Martens 60th anniversary.
ABOUT THE 1460 REMASTERED
Six decades of self-expression. Six eras of growing with the subcultures that adopted us. Sixty years empowering DM wearers. The world change dramatically in that time. But one thing has remained the same. The 1460 boot. Working together with 12 innovative labels, brands and designers, DM is marking our original boot’s anniversary with a series of one-off reworks. And there’s one dropping once a month, every month throughout 2020.
Founded in 2015, Garrett Stevenson and Lee Spielman’s LA-based brand Babylon is a throwback to classic, fearless branding, putting their own signature spin on nostalgic imagery from the past. The classic look and feel Off-White, Converse, Neighborhood, Budweiser, and more. Since its inception, Babylon has placed a great priority on building its community, hosting pop-ups and events across the globe, providing a more memorable experience than simply buying clothes. Babylon is a feeling.
Beams’ goal is to become a culture shop that creates culture through the product it sells. They provide value that transcends material satisfaction by sharing the context behind a product, such as details on the time and background of its origin. Beams consists of numerous sections representing various styles, and it is this width and depth that makes Beams unique. Over the years, Beams has eagerly expanded its business to realms other than fashion – cafes, sundries, interior goods, music, and art to name but a few. We edit our array of contents to cater to the current time and location of every shop. In a time of increasingly diverse values, our sharp sense for time business style.
