DR. MARTENS SPEAKS TO PLAC

Many designers at Men’s New York Fashion Week chose to incorporate Dr. Martens into their runway styles. We caught up with a few talented designers and creative directors and asked them about their new lines and their Docs. Here, we spoke to Richard Chun, General Manager of PLAC to find out about their Spring Summer 2017 collection.

Tell us about your first pair of Dr. Martens.
I bought my first pair at Dr. Martens Union Square store in NYC. I was 25 years old. They looked clean and well made, but not too formal – which is good. I still have them and still wear them all the time. 
 
Can you tell us a bit about your new collection and why you chose to incorporate Dr Martens into you show for NYFW?
Dr. Martens shoes get along with any type of clothes like work and casual wear, and PLAC’s Spring Summer 2017 garments also fit into those categories. We were inspired by David Hackneys’ artwork; we made clean, gentle looks with artist’s paintings and personal style to create what we call a ‘gentleman’s summer wardrobe’ that was influenced by sixties silhouettes. 
 
PLAC Spring Summer 2017 collection is one cohesive work of art. Our newest menswear offerings welcomed short-sleeved collared button downs, cropped trousers, and striped shirts. A psychedelic pair of red-tinted oval sunglasses heightened the mood. 
 
What do you stand for?
I stand for PLAC and PLAC only.
