Engineered Garments Continues Partnership With Doc Martens

Doc Martens is renewing its partnership with Engineered Garments.
The footwear brand is working with Japanese designer Daiki Suzuki, who founded the brand in 1999, to update the 3989 5-eye brogue. Suzuki, who is known for collecting vintage clothing, mixed five different types of leather — croc, pebble and suede — to construct the shoes, which also feature yellow welt stitching, a Docs signature and an air-cushioned sole. The shoes, which are available now in black and brown, retail for $ 230.
The brand has focused more on implementing comfort and performance into its collections. Last year it launched a WinterGrip collection built for cold weather elements.
“As a footwear brand we are always looking to innovate and bring new technologies to market. This was a great opportunity to combine our classic Dr. Martens styling with a modern, functional WinterGrip technology to the outsole,” said Sam Breese, head of product in the Americas.

Some of the outfits going on display include the Armani chinos and white shirt she wore to visit the landmine fields in Angola with the International Red Cross in 1997 and a violet body-hugging gown created by Gianni Versace, a dear friend of Diana’s, for a fund-raising dinner at the Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
The pink David Sassoon dress Princess Diana wore en route to her honeymoon with Prince Charles will also be exhibited, alongside pieces by Catherine Walker, Caroline Charles and Victor Edelstein, a leading London couturier in the Eighties.
Princess Diana was also known for championing local designer names during State visits, as illustrated by a cobalt blue pleated gown by the London-based Japanese-born designer, Yuki, worn to a State Dinner with Emperor Hirohito in Tokyo.
The exhibition will reopen on April 26 at Kensington Palace and it’s predicted to attract large crowds as interest on the British Royals is peaking, with
