Available in black and wheat, the collaboration is based off of the concept of “Reinventing California.”
We sat down with Alex James, the Brand Director for Publish, to tell us about the inspiration behind the collection and how he’d personally style the boots.
How did the concept of “Reinventing California” come to be?
People associate boots with colder climates yet everyone in California still wears Timberlands. These classic styles have no boundaries.
We wanted to put our design aesthetic on two models that we love, the Chelsea and the Oxford, and educate the masses on relaxed California lifestyle.
Through styling, photography, and awareness, Publish and Timberland are “Reinventing California” style one day at time.
Why did Publish decide to collaborate with Timberland?
We have all been huge fans of Timberland for quite sometime – we use a lot of different Timberland boots in our styling. The overall vibe matches ours seamlessly. When the opportunity arose to collaborate, we didn’t hesitate and the rest is now history.
What was the creative process and thinking behind the design of the Chelsea boots?
Right now, Chelsea boots are highly desirable in many different sects of fashion around the world. I personally don’t like the heel on most Chelsea’s out today.
