This morning I popped into the Exposure PR press day, I was invited to see the SS13 Dr Martens collection. I LOVE Dr Martens, I love the fact they are a great British brand, I love the fact they are always cool, they are comfortable, well made, waterproof, they are just brilliant! You could ask anyone in the street who Dr Martens are, and they would all know, yet they were the shoe of choice at London Fashion Week this season for all the top press. That’s because everyone knows Dr Martens, and everyone loves them! They are effortlessly cool.
For AW12, Dr Martens teamed up with Agnes Deyn, I loved the collection because it was totally 90s grunge, it was all inspired by Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. It was really hip and wearable. This forthcoming SS13 season they have joined forces again to produce another range of clothes and shoes. The shoes are too cute, sandals and bows, chunky with cut-out sections. I love them in orange! The clothes have the motif of an eye running through them, from a bag in the shape of an eye, to an eye print top, to a orange dress where the buttons are tiny eyes. It’s all cute hip and wearable, and the eye is actually Agnes’s eye. Inspired by the Tokyo region of Harajuko, this collection is cute, hip, casual and edgy.
Dr Martens have a collection which is still made in their original factory, this is the Made in England range, I love anything made in the UK, and it’s a beautiful range, made for life, they are created from their finest leathers and silk. I really love these pieces, I really love the shoes made out of silk tie fabric, what a wonderful twist!
There were so many shoes, boots and bags to look at and I was so smitten with so many pairs! From the cut out shoes, to the studded boots. I loved the neon boots with three colours and brogue stitching. I loved every pair which had a matching satchel! I so want to rock a matching pair of docs and satchel! I love the brogues, the creepers, the boots! It was all quite exciting! I took a lot of snaps! Enjoy! Visit the Dr Martens website!
