SHOPPING: Dr MARTENS SS17
This is probably the largest Dr Martens collection I’ve ever seen and also the first in a long time to actually reflects DM’s fascinating history and unique place in the footwear. From the Made in England collection, which epitomizes DM’s core values, to the Re-Invented or Refined collections, each segment was developed to fully represent the different periods and versatility of the British shoemaker. Punk, grunge, streetwear, 90’s, fashion, arty, counter-culture, traditional vs modern, nothing has been forgotten.
I love the Reuban, Talib and Kamar for their MadMax meets streetwear take. Monochromes and paints are now fully part of the DM’s classics with new splatters, gradients and for the first time the 3989 brogue in all white. Suede is also a big part of the collection with the Arthur (beige), 3989 brogue (not featured) and again Reuban, Talib and Kamar. Some styles are also making a comeback, especially the lovely and unexpected LES LTT, hybrid between Arthur and classic monkey.
