1996 Bungee Cord Boot
Marked size: 41
Extremely rare museum piece boot. It’s in a couple collections as we’ve heard and seen. This boot features the classic squared toe along with the floating steel heel and bungee cords hooked around the loose top. This pair comes with both colors of bungee cords which is very hard to find 26 years later.
Dirk Bikkembergs was notable for being a part of the “Antwerp 6”, a group of fashion students all graduating from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts. This group includes Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, and Honorary member Martin Margiela. They minus Margiela set out with a rented truck of their collections and rocked London Fashion week and the rest is history. They still all meetup and keep in touch today.
