Dr. Martens opened their first New York retail store at 148 Spring Street in conjunction with their 50th Anniversary with a launch party this past Wednesday. The store?s de?cor is based around the furniture and fixtures you could expect to find in the raw and industrial Northamptonshire, England factory. Reflecting the sense of craft involved in Dr. Martens? boots and shoes, all fittings used in the store are authentic and durable. Now all the die-hard Dr. Martens fans can shop till they drop, the store stocks a full offering of boots, shoes, sandals and accessories as well as a special limited edition 1460 boot in Liberty Green and Big Apple Red exclusively in the SoHo store.
There was also a preview of the Spring/Summer 2011 collection at the party which you’ve already previewed last month. All guests got to leave with a pair of Dr. Martens of their choice, I went with the Diva Darcie 8-Eye Boot! Love them!
