Jon: Four Facts….



1.) The aesthetic and cultural mindset of the early 1990’s is without a doubt returning.

2.) Doc Martens shoes are gaining popularity again, largely due to some new design ideas and Kate Moss adopting the style.

3.) Gladiator style shoes are all the rage right now, and appear to be developing into less of a trend piece and more as a new classic.

4.) Guest designers doing capsule collections for lower end brands (think Target’s Go International line, or the upcoming Comme Des Garcons collection at H&M) is the total shit right now…


What the fuck is up with the hideous love child created by (otherwise excellent designer) Raf Simons and Doc Martens? These aweful shoes are scheduled to be released for Spring 2009, but with the negative reaction they are getting from just about everyone who has seen this preview, I wouldn’t be surprised if the whole thing got scrapped.

    i support the 90’s coming back. especially since for the most part I was in elementary/middle school…it’s kind of like a subconscious nostalgia or regret for not getting a chance to live the best moments of it as a teenager….

    but Doc Martin SANDAL THONGS are disgusting!!!!!
