Dr. Martens is going high-fashion thanks to the company's recent partnering with Jean Paul Gaultier. The French fashion designer has customized the classic boots for fall, adding large perforations to styles in both black and white for women (which call to mind a punk rock take on YSL's coveted cage shoe). Fashionista found a first look at the aforementioned two styles, but unfortunately there's "no real information on timing, though it sounds like they’ll only be available in Gaultier stores in France." For those who can't make it across the pond, there's always Urban Outfitters, and, as Fashionista notes, good old DIY. [Fashionista]
