Hitting Dover Street Market today, the collection – composed of three distinct styles of the ‘Teix’ trekking boot – explores the fusion of performance and design. Kostadinov, whose work focuses on innovative pattern cutting and intricate garment construction, is often influenced by uniforms and workwear – making this partnership a fitting one, given Camper’s utilitarian aesthetic.
Reinventing one of the Spanish brand’s most classic concepts, the series consists of chunky-soled, hard-wearing boots in three earthy colourways with contrasting branding on the tongue.
Set to influence the next generation of outdoor-inspired urban footwear, the campaign embodies Kostadinov and Camper’s values of individuality and diversity. Shot by Gareth McConnell in an overexposed, low-fi style, and with art direction from Dazed’s art director Jamie Andrew Reid, the images capture the leather and mesh panels of the ‘Teix’ in a way that provokes feelings of movement and action.
The collaboration will hit Dover Street Market, London today via an in-store installation.
