CAMPER FOOTWEAR TOGETHER Projects S/S 2014-Rachel Comey + Bernhard Willhelm


Miguel Fluxa-Owner, Carlox Motti-General Manager
NYFW offered up footwear collections -including one of our favorites ---the family owned, Camper. An international brand (300 stores and sold in 50+countries) that we bet the likes of a Deckers or Wolverine Worldwide would love to snap up if they could afford it- to add to their portfolios of great shoe brands.

A fun, fashionable and comfortable selection of footwear always---and set for Spring 2014- sandals by Rachel Comey----and the 10th (!) takes on the unisex Himalayan outsole shoes with Bernhard Willhelm.

Rachel Comey-Camper: Molded rubber sandal, anatomical insole lined with leather, hand made embroidered upper+rubber texture details-als comes in white and a rose petal pink 

Fashion Designer-Rachel Comey-womenswear, menswear apparel vintage tinged- modern clothes w/edge and details-traditional craftsmanship fused with contemporary good looks.

the art installations which we just noticed while going through the pics-we guess is a  sardonic take on gender based advertising

TEN YEARS--- Camper and Bernard Willhelm  created an iconic sporty kick -from the beginning To&ther collab with the Himalayan-(outsole shaped like an undulating mountain range)...

For S/S 2014 the series of unisex sneakers come in a variety of color and print options...and a color block sandal with adjustable straps.

Bernard Willhelm-men's colorful 2 strap summer sandal-though we think these qualify as unisex too
