Camper Together

A Model of Collaboration

Camper Together

Veronique Branquinho

Vilvoorde, Belgium. 1973

Clothes, lingerie, eyeglasses, bags, opera costumes, shoes... whatever she designs, Veronique Branquinho always steers clear of ostentation, a decision that Camper applauds and decided to celebrate by inviting her to join the Together project. The result is footwear that captures every nuance of the Belgian designer's understated perfectionism, shoes that are absolutely breathtaking in their stark simplicity.

Veronique Branquinho graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, in 1985. In 1994 she became associated with a group formed at her alma mater, the "Antwerp Six", rubbing elbows with prestigious designers such as Raf Simons, Olivier Rizzo, Peter de Potter and Dries van Noten. In 1997 she created her own label and presented her first collection in Paris. Heady success quickly followed: from its headquarters in Antwerp, the Veronique Branquinho brand spread to New York, Moscow, Tokyo, London and Paris. In 2008 the ModeMuseum in Antwerp organised an exhibition featuring designs from her early years. In 2012 she designed the wardrobe for the opera Sága by Belgian band Dez Mona. She has exhibited at the Fashion Biennale in Florence and the Institute of Fashion Technology in New York.
