Embracing the ‘Makers Movement’: Matthew Miller x Timberland

In the next few years, every person will be able to interact and have a conscious choice on colour and the way that a garment is constructed and finished. In a true sense Timberland are pioneers in the new movement, the biggest of our generation: “The makers movement.”

- Matthew Miller

This season, Matthew Miller has partnered with Timberland to design the footwear for his show at LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN. Using our Design Your Own online tool (US version here and UK version here), the breakthrough menswear designer created four unique styles which mirror the themes of his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.

Miller picked from the hundreds of leather bases, laces, rivets and soles available on Timberland.com to adapt the classic boot to sit alongside his collection.  See the finished products and hear more about the collaboration from the designer himself:

The ease and gratification of the Timberland Design Your Own function meant the design process was effortless. The design possibilities are endless: you choose your own colours, hardware, fabrications and can even take the customisation further with your own embroidered initials.
