Dr Martens present their Spring/Summer 2013 collection with a smart lookbook video. Looking back towards their iconic appropriation by groups like the punks and skins of 70′s Britain, Dr. Martens feature Fred & Nick of Pulse Films for the video. ”Tribes are not just premised solely on style, but also by substance. A shared attitude, a spirit, an instinct. For many, their first pair of Dr. Martens is both a statement of self expression and a stamp of belonging. An individual style, connected by a united spirit.”
