Spanish shoes in London with japanese “co-operation”


The Japanese artist has recreated a floral landscape in the new Together boutique on Regent Street.

 Camper has taken a new initiative to promote creative diversity in its new Together shop in the heart of London. The shop is set to open in October at 207-209, Regent Street. The artist behind the concept is Tokujin Yoshioka, one of Japan’s leading designers on the international scene, who has taken his inspiration from elements of nature.

Simple, but with the complex beauty of a landscape in bloom, the setting is an invitation to contemplation. The idea comes from an installation the artist created in New York in 2007, based on the principles of nature. On that occasion artificial suede was used to create the flowers decorating the walls in a rich palette of natural reds in line with the brand’s colours.

Tokujin’s work emerges from the beauty of everyday objects. Born in Saga (Japan), the designer has worked with Issey Miyake since 1988. In the year 2000, he founded his own studio, where he has worked with brands like Hermés and Swarovski. However, he first earned international recognition when he created his paper chair Honey-Pop, which has been on exhibition at galleries like the MOMA and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The Together concept came to life in 2006, and reflects a style of partnership which Camper has evolved over more than thirty years. With it, the brand has successfully integrated diverse cultures and skills in a bid to communicate its essence through new kinds of language. This is the Majorcan brand’s fourth Together shop in London.
