R.M. Williams and Australian designer Marc Newson have announced the release of the second capsule of their collaboration on the Yard Boot 365.
The new capsule collection of the Yard Boot 365 has launched exclusively with the global online luxury platform, Farfetch. The full collection will also be available on the 1st of March online.
Designed with purpose as a future icon, and the modern-day work boot for the modern-day worker, this collection sees the introduction of a new colour palette with a contrasting cream sole.
The Yard Boot 365 was a contemporary take on the original R.M. Williams Gardener boot, first introduced in the 1950s as an answer to the combined effects of mud, water and sand, for those working in long grass, dairies, swampy or sandy conditions. The Yard Boot 365 embraces this concept of hardworking versatility and updates it for the modern adventurer.
The new capsule collection utilises the same unisex design, made from one piece of leather, a moulded sole and a fully engineered elastic gusset. The boots have the same core design and style, including the sunray sole tread pattern inspired by the harsh yet beautiful Australian outback.
There are three new colourways, Burgundy in a soft Italian leather, Grey in suede and Dusty Ochre in suede.
The Black and Walnut Greasy Kit leather colourways from the first capsule will carryover and sit alongside the three new colours and R.M. Williams' other iconic styles in their trademark colours.
"It is important to me to preserve the DNA of any brand I work with. For this year's Yard Boot 365 capsule collection, we updated the colours and the contrast outsole. As most of us have had to learn new ways of working and living over the past year, I hope this boot adds character to life's everyday adventures," explained Newson.
