do you remember your first pair of doc martens? let it be noted that the english working class shoes are making a serious resurgence, especially when they graced the runways of high-end designers. the company is running a very smart marketing campaign right now, which asks people to remember their firsts: first kiss, first love, first pair of doc martens. they even got the amazing street style photographers, scott schulman and garance dore, to weigh in on the question and beautiful agyness deyn to model in the campain (smart!)
as for me, i got my first pair in college - a six hole shelby boot. then i got a three hole oxford with pointy toe. then, i got those tassled, slip on oxfords in the photo above. five pairs later (wait, was it more?) and they're all gone; lost in my move from san francisco to boston, along with a ton of other college momentos. those who know me well, would agree this loss was for the best as it forced me to make a fresh start. and, now you know my first heartbreak.
ps~love this first heartbreak video that accompanies the campaign. well said, agyness deyn, well said.
