The new Dr Martens collection, entitled ‘Spirit of ‘69’, aims to encapsulate the Skinhead ‘look’.
They’ve teamed up with a number of renowned brands to create a collection inspired by the original Skinheads of the late ’60s.
I don’t like it! Dr martens was a basically a skinhead brand! This new collection looks like it’s trying to revive the “fashion” and being skinhead is not a fashion! In addition, the girl on the picture look like a skinhead which denies itself, for example his jeans (we cant see very well here but I have seen other pictures) it looks like it is bleached but just a little. It makes me think of someone who would have the look but do not dare too. Or someone who want to follow the fashion but in the negative way, the person who don’t have personality and wants to dress like everybody. But damn, being skinhead is not a fuckin’ fashion, it’s a way of life! Now in France, there are large store chains (like “mim”) that sell “fake” dr martens and people who wear it are 12 yo girls who pad their bra and smoke to play the rebel. I find it pathetic! I don’t know if people are the same in other countries so i give my point of view as a french people. But i really dont want to see little stupid “skinhead” who just follow the fashion who will be something else the next year.
