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.
Do you think Doc Marten’s just happened to overlook the part of skinhead history that is violent and all about white power?
It’s an awesome style. And there where a lot of Ska-minded people who just loved the style and music and the whole scene who weren’t into white-power or racism. I think it’s risky, but maybe this way the whole racist-skinhead reference will finally dissapear. And we’ve seen it a while now….
A lot of male models with tattoos, mustaches and beards, dress super skinhead with their pants rolled up high, dark leather boots, white shirt/blouse with suspenders…. The only difference is the facial hair.
And the worst thing is, there a probably more racist people who dress like ‘common’ people than peeps who dress this supercool fashion style.
This film will freshen things up! http://youtu.be/-i7ZM-aeDzo
