DR. MARTENS X NYFW MEN’S: SS18

From July 10 – 13, the fifth CFDA New York Fashion Week – Mens descended upon Lower Manhattan, with 50-plus brands showing their SS18 collections. While the idea of a menswear Fashion Week spinoff is still relatively new in the fashion world — most stick to the bigger presentations in Paris and Milan — smaller, niche brands and cult favorites see the American week as the perfect venue to present casual-classic uniforms. Which is why the catwalk saw plenty of Doc’s, too, with six designers choosing Dr. Martens as their footwear of choice: Carlos Campos, General Idea, Kenneth Ning, Khai Hutchinson, Maiden Noir and R. Swiader. Here’s some of our favorite looks from those shows — starring some of our favorite Doc’s.
