Best known for their iconic heavy-duty boots which have been loved alike by grungy teenagers from the 90s to the Shoreditch fashion followers of today…Dr Martens has just launched its own clothing line.
The new lines which was launched yesterdays for men and women also includes accessories and draws inspiration from contemporary “fashionistas” who have adopted the workwear shoe into their wardrobe.
The label has designed a simple collection of shirts, sweatshirts and dresses and contains pretty much what you would expect (and I don’t mean that in a dissapointing way!) – a lot of gingham and check in red and navy.
Prices range from £30 to £70 and the line is available at Dr. Martens stores nationwide, or online at drmartens.com .
