WE LOVE: BERNHARD WILLHELM + CAMPER FALL 2012
Bernhard WillheLm builds upon his 7 seasons in collaboration with Camper shoes for Fall 2012. Willhem (who, quickly in case you’re not familiar, got his start with Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood and has worked closely with Bjork) transposed his quirky designs on both his collection and the Camper sneakers at his show in paris that featured models dressed as writhing zombies. The sneaks mix architectural structures with an orchestra of color and offer up styles that go from flamboyant to euphemistic without loosing a common voice. That the Camper collaboration manages to stand out means that they can be worn as focus pieces for more quiet looks (simple pants, simple shirt) or incorporated into much more busy looks without being swallowed whole. But really, it means this is a collection that’ll be adored.
