The Dr. Martens Individual Style, United Spirit campaign continues with the release of this short film starring British model Ash Stymest. The video is a gritty, intimate look into Stymest’s life, and follows the model and his crew – which includes fellow models Todd Taylor and Adwoa Aboah – as they take to the streets of Manchester in typical Doc Martens style. Stymest narrates, sharing his thoughts on life, love, and growing up: “I’m 20 years old. Who’s really got it figured out at 20? None of us have got it all figured out. As much as we think we have, we ain’t, have we?”
The Individual Style, United Spirit campaign is a continuation of Dr. Martens’ Fall 12 campaign of the same name, in which Stymest also made an appearance. The campaign spotlights the spirit of the brand and its followers through interviews, audio recordings, photography, festival coverage and videos. The project’s accompanying hashtag, #FIRSTANDFOREVER asks notable industry figures, including Alice Dellal, Ash Stymest and Agyness Deyn, to share their memorable first experiences (like their first kiss or buying their first pair of Dr. Martens).
