Dr.Martens X Sunspel Collection

With the regeneration of British manufacturing and the economic crisis heavily in the lime light at the moment, the government strategically pumping money into revamping rundown areas of the country with The Olympics and Mary Portas fronting these initial projects, it was only natural that British brand Sunspel: one of the oldest producers of high quality British perfectly hued polo’s and luxury mens underwear since the 1860’s, now stretching across male and female clothing announced their collaboration with 60’s British giants Dr.Marten’s.

A design and craft match made in heaven collaborating to create 2 60’s polo’s to represent the colour palette of the classic Dr.Martens brand the two exclusive polo’s currently released by the brand seem to have echoed 60’s rivals Fred Perry, giving DM their very own tipped polo duo perfectly matching their Ox Blood brogue and Classic Black boot with tips to match the classic yellow stitching, a brand strategy I feel that’s been a long time coming.

Although the brands choices are very similar to items seen on the market before, and won’t knock you for six like a Mary Katrantzou mirrored floral, their choice of colour scheme, luxury egyptian cotton, unique attention to detail and the fact their manufacturing is all completed on Great British soil in Long Eaton means that this collab is something to fork out for, screaming sleek 60’s style and showing British production at its finest. I’m just now hoping they bring out some women’s dresses!
