Throughout Dr. Martens history, the brand has been adopted by diverse individuals, musicians, youth cultures and tribes, so it was only natural for the launch to be supportive of home-grown talent. A special attention-grabbing commission created by local artist John Mackay was proudly displayed on a large-scale backboard and will remain a focal point within the store.
The Dr. Martens Oxford store is now open at – Unit 46, 238 Westgate, Queen Street, Oxford, Oxfordshire. OX1 1PE.
