Would Daria Approve Of These Floral Liberty London x Doc Martens? We Think Yes.
April 19, 2012
Nineties icon Daria Morgendorffer wouldn’t be caught dead (but maybe a little deadpan) without her Doc Marten combat boots — but how would the deliciously dry character feel about a collaboration with Liberty London, purveyor of the flower print? As devotees of the MTV series, we can say with absolute certainty that she would approve of these rugged, yet extremely-floral lace-ups, which hit stores May 1.
And whether you remember Daria or not, this season, floral is having a moment. Wait! Hear us out! Unlike every spring, when we get a floral skirt here or a floral dress there, the print is showing up on literally every piece of clothing—blouses, jeans, pants, even blazers.
The iconic eight-hole and three-hole boots and shoes will be covered in the Brit line’s signature prints: “Strawberry Thief,” the classic print designed by William Morris in 1883, ia a retro combination of flowers and birds, while “Martens Flower” is a modern take on the 1930s Carlino print. We’re pretty sure this cool collaboration was inspired by the phrase, “April showers bring May flowers.” Or, if you’re Daria — just more showers.
