From Givenchy to Vivienne Westwood, 2011 has seen an explosion of floral fetishism that extends beyond the standard spring sweeps. No stranger to floral patterns themselves, Doc Martens have been making tongues wag positively for the first time in ages. Their new 2012 line is bold, vibrant and absolutely beautiful. It features new materials and solid colors as well as a few new shoe and boot designs, but it’s the floral prints that are sweeping across the blogs. Ditch your high-school punk phase and go flower child.
