Covet: Dr. Marten “Garden of Earthly Delights” Satchel


Just a few weeks ago, I wrote a short post about the current Doc Marten revival. Last year, I complied a list of clothing and accessories that incorporated the art of Hieronymous Bosch. And now my friend CV has sent me a link to a new collection that combines both these interests of mine: a line of limited edition Dr. Marten/Bosch shoes and bags.

They all look fantastic, and any of them would be sure to garner looks and compliments on the subway and on the street. I think the small satchel illustrated with a section of  Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights—the “Heaven” section, when everyone is still frolicking with fruit and flowers in some kind of terrestrial Paradise—is my favorite.


Here’s a look at the whole collection. These items aren’t cheap (the small satchel is 125 pounds on the UK site), but they’re fun to look at. I hope I’ll see someone wearing those Hell boots on the street someday soon.

This collection is available through the Dr. Marten website.
