Introducing Dr. Martens x Sex Pistols Collection
Dr. Martens mines punk history for an iconic new collaboration.
Anarchist artist Jamie Reid is best known for creating the cover art for albums and singles by English punk band the Sex Pistols. Reid used the technique of décollage — “unstick” in English — using posters ripped from walls to make new artwork.
His images have now been “unstuck” from the albums and repurposed as custom footwear art for Dr. Martens. “Docs” have always been one of the chosen footwear brands of the punk scene — often customized by the wearer with Sharpie drawings, studs and other embellishments — so it’s only fitting that images by one of the legendary figures in punk art would adorn these new styles.
