Dr. Martens x Central Saint Martins 24′: a work of experimental design

The British footwear brand has just unveiled the four winners of the ‘MA Fashion‘ competition held at Central Saint Martins. A cast of emerging talents made up of Finlay Roberts, Yanya Cheng, Traiceline Pratt and Valeria Pulici will receive a £5,000 scholarship to develop their creative practice during their last academic term.

The expert jury, made up of personalities such as Darren McKoy and Lulu Kennedy MBE, thus recognised the high aesthetic vision of these four creatives who worked with the Dr. Martens design team to devise prototypes and even the future of the 1460 boots.

At the core of the moodboard, the young designers were creatively stimulated by legends who preceded them in reinterpreting the silhouette, such as JPG, Comme des Garçons or Yohji Yamamoto.

Within this collection, which took to the fashion school stage, we find Yana Cheng‘s Martens, which put the focus on a conversation between the designer and the wearer through folded fabrics and superimposed layers. Meanwhile, Valeria Pulici was inspired by streetwear and the reconstruction of everyday objects through the intersection between recycling, vintage pieces and bioplastics.

Traiceline Pratt sculpted womenswear with distorted sculptural forms, and Finlay Vincent Roberts, who runs the SYSTEM brand, created a final piece with 20 modular components that can be transformed into more than 100 variants.
