Eckhaus Latta Are Happy Campers

Eckhaus Latta, the experimental label helmed by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta; has positioned itself at the vanguard of New York’s new wave and is hailed for injecting the city with a much needed shot of artistic flair.

Season by season they take NYFW by storm and enjoy a band of inspired and devoted followers, some of which have even started their own brands, such as August Vestbo of Bror August or Esther Gauntlett and Jenny Cheng of Gauntlett Cheng.

Eckhaus Latta’s offbeat designs and witty eclecticism has caught the eye of Spanish footwear brand, Camper, who recently invited the duo to collaborate on their project ‘Camper Together’. The result is an exclusive selection of block-heeled sock boots in delectable pastel shades.

The collaboration is a marvellous meeting of minds. Eckhaus Latta’s fascination with knitwear is merged with Camper’s shoemaking expertise, the outcome is captured in a short film set in Camper’s native Mallorca and features Eckhaus Latta muses, Hari Nef and Martine Gutieriez.


The film beautifully blends fashion and performance art, with the two models acting out trance-like sequences in which they attempt to drink out of glasses with the boots on their hands or crush oranges wearing them on their feet.

Speaking about the collaboration, Eckhaus Latta said, “we became very inspired by Camper’s late 90s Walk Don’t Run campaign, which captures Mallorcan and Spanish landscapes with normal people, occasionally in the shoes,” says Latta. “We felt inspired to use that as a jumping off point but our way, with our clothes and our people.”
