Agyness Deyn is taking her love for Dr. Martens to the next level. After modeling for the iconic boots brand's most recent advertising campaigns and wearing its products since she was just 13, Deyn will become Dr. Martens' next designer.
The Manchester-born model says that designing a capsule collection for the rebellious fashion house is a great fit for her.
"It stands for strong character and being able to shape your own personal identity," she explained.
While Dr. Marten's signature combat boots will be a part of the new collection, there's more to this range than footwear. Deyn will also design apparel and accessories for the British fashion house. Theoretically that means we could dress head to toe in Deyn's creations, but I wonder whether that could be too much. Perhaps we're better using the rock inspired pieces as accents only!
Deyn's always been more than just a pretty face. Her androgynous looks and tomboyish charm help to set her apart from so many catwalks models. I wouldn't ordinarily be excited about a model adding to their resume, but I'm excited to see what Deyn comes up with. Since she's so familiar with the brand's creative vision, I'm expecting something really special.
The Agyness Deyn for Dr. Martens line will hit stores this fall.
