The fashion and lifestyle news to know this season
Discover our roundup of the latest fashion and lifestyle news from Westfield Stratford City.
The UK’s most iconic brand has shod generations of subcultures. It started in the 1960s when The Who’s Pete Townshend stepped out in a pair and a legion of mods followed suit. Later, the punks of the 1970s and 80s customised their high-cut DM boots with colourful laces and studded chains before the 90s ushered in grunge style, pairing DMs with flannel shirts and slip dresses.
Their enduring appeal is in part thanks to the brand’s clever collaborations with an eclectic mix of tastemakers including designers Yohji Yamamoto and Marc Jacobs (celebrating the 25th anniversary of his 1993 Redux Grunge collection), as well as artist-activist Keith Haring, the Tate Britain and English rock band Joy Division.
In store you’ll find all of Dr. Martens’ best-loved styles including the original 1460 lace-up boots and the 2976 Chelsea boots. What’s more, a team of experienced staff is on hand with practical advice to make choosing your perfect style a walk in the park.
