DR. MARTENS SPEAKS TO OLIVIA EMILY

We spoke to Olivia Emily, fashion blogger and one of the faces of our Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign, to find out more about what she gets up to in London and what she’s listening to right now.

Tell us about your life in London:
In London I generally hang out around Angel and East London – they just have a much more homely vibe than the other central bits! I spend most of my time in parks, and outside of London I love going on walks through forests – I grew up in the countryside, so nature is a huge part of my life.  
 
How many pairs of Dr. Martens do you own:
6 (so far!)

Tell us about your first pair of DMs:
I got my first pair of DMs for Christmas when I was 14 or 15 – classic black 1460s. They’ve been a solid part of my wardrobe ever since and still hold up today, despite being worn for thousands of days!  
 
List three tracks that you are listening to right now:
I seem to be stuck listening to older songs recently:
Everlong – Foo Fighters
Wake Up – Rage Against The Machine
Hey – Pixies
(it was so hard to pick those three out! Honourable mentions to System of a Down, Slipknot, RHCP & old Daft Punk)

What is your favourite thing about the city you live in?
London always has something new to discover – a secret garden tucked away behind a corner, or an unassuming cafe that makes the best cinnamon rolls you’ve ever had in your life (seriously, they’re the size of your head), or someone or something completely new.
