Dr. Martens' classical boots in 'China' design
Highlights of the new Dr. Martens Fall/Winter 2015 women's collection are the classical 'Core Pascal' 8-eye boots with print that is inspired by porcelain table ware. In English 'porcelain' is also named 'China' after the country where the production of porcelain was developed. In the 17th century, it became fashionable to import blue-white porcelain ware in Ming dynasty style from China to England.
The white-blue print of the Dr. Martens boots show typical landscape sceneries with a boat on a river, a house, a bridge and birds; one of the birds looks like the legendary 'fenghuang', the Chinese phoenix which symbolizes in porcelain history luck, world peace, represents the empress and the harmony of yin-yang as well as marital harmony.
