Editor’s Notes: As if he wasn’t busy enough DJing, designing, throwing wild parties for major fashion houses, and running his own fashion label, Argentinian multi-talent Marcelo Burlon has teamed up with Timberland on an exclusive drop of the footwear brand’s classic 6-inch boot.
The collaborative boot was unveiled on the runway earlier this year and is the last design to drop from Marcelo Burlon County of Milan’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection. Burlon, who is known for selecting alternative and often dark themes for his collections, lived up to his reputation this season looking to tarot card iconography and horror movie graphics for inspiration.
Continuing the theme, Burlon has dip-dyed Timberland’s iconic 6-inch silhouette to create a fading effect from fiery red at the ankle to black at the toe. Not only does the choice of color and gradient effect aesthetically fit the rest of the range, but it is also suitably macabre recalling, in the brand’s words, “a blood stain in reverse.” A perfect Halloween cop we think.
