Fashion revivals from decades past are all around us. ‘50s mod dresses? Check. ‘80s off-the-shoulder, neon sweaters? Hot. Every season is a potpourri of old-school remixes. The grunge-filled ‘90s are no exception.
What screams ‘90s to me? Besides the juicy, drama-fuelled Brenda/Dylan/Kelly love triangle on the original Beverly Hills, 90210, I remember Dr. Martens shoes (which, I’m pretty sure, were featured on the show, too). The chunky look, the perfect sole stitching, and the bold colors.
The footwear of choice for Generation X.
It’s been a while since those glory days, but the brand never dropped off the radar. The company evolved just as fast as its consumer.
Doc Martens aren’t about what shoes young Hollywood’s wearing. Or about how much one should spend to make a statement. They’re about self-expression.
Today you have the luxury to express yourself like never before. Music. Facebook status. Pictures. Tweets. Fashion. You have a million ways to project your image. A million inspirations to choose from. And sometimes what you’re searching for has been right in front of you all along.
Dr. Martens. Event on now.
