Twins by Swash
Camper presents, a limited collection in collaboration with the English brand, Swash.
This new line belongs to the Camper’s “Twins Artista” concept, a project that started in 1992 and shows the relationship between Camper and the worlds of art, design and fashion.
A new vision of Twins has been created now by Sarah Swash and Toshio Yamanaka, the founders of Swash. These two designers, who studied at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College in London, have as their hallmark hand-printed illustrations (hand-drawn by Toshio and hand-painted by Sarah) inspired by 19th century botanical drawings and the idea of creating a Swash’ Cabinet de Curiosités’ but translated into a world of surrealistic aesthetics that takes one back to childhood tales and stories.
The result of this new collaboration is a very feminine and romantic collection, with styles of different heights and full of classic details. Two different patterns have been developed for it. The first one presents nautical figures like traditional fisherman’s knots, anchors, compasses and diving helmets, that bring back, with nostalgia, a summer spirit from the past.
On the other hand, the second print recalls a dream and fantasy world through a kaleidoscope of multi-coloured balloons that come from studying depictions of early flying machines – “Dream Machines” – which were the ultimate sky ride and a utopian summer’s pastime in the early 19th century.
Like in all Twins, in this new collection each shoe has its own personality, but when part of a pair, they represent a scene which makes them indivisible.
A collection filled with creativity, imagination and fantasy that prove that there is a different way of walking.
