Timberland announces another collaborative release following the collections with Tokyo based RFW and San Francisco based Black Scale. This time Timberland partners with Japanese renowned lifestyle fashion label UNITED ARROWS BEAUTY&YOUTH (B&Y) for the first time to introduce a collaborative Premium 6” Boot.
Established in 1989, UNITED ARROWS is a Japanese multi-brand retailer offering dressy clothing and goods for fashion-savvy who pursue a quality lifestyle. Its subsidiary label BEAUTY&YOUTH has been promoting the “Beautiful Spirits and Eternal Youth” to a more mature group of consumers with elegant, clean, trusted and traditional clothing.
The collaborative 6” boots represent B&Y’s modern take on the classic silhouette of the Timberland boot. Preserving the signature wheat color, the B&Y Premium 6” boot has adopted a more hairy suede material instead of the original nubuck leather for the shoe’s body. The padded collar is crafted with a dark navy suede material to create a more aesthetic style. Other details such as the golden round eyelets, tone-on-tone wheat color stitches and wheat shoe laces also give the classic boot a more contemporary look.
The Timberland x United Arrows Beauty & Youth Premium 6” Boot will be available at Raffles City, ION Orchard, 313@ Somerset, Paragon and Takashimaya Men’s Department from 21 November 2014 onwards at a retail price of SGD$359.
