90’s White Lace Up Boots
A pair of white canvas (with leather lining) web lace boots. It’s rarer to see these in a canvas as well as a white rendition compared to the many black leather ones now being sold. This boot can be cleaned but I wasn’t sure if the marks on it were intentional as doesn’t seem to used and the marks give it kind of a vintage feel and blends well with old denim and army stuff. I’m sure if you want, the white canvas could clean right up.
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.
