Buenos Aires, 1964.
Every Camper store designed by Alfredo Häberli is a different mise-en-scène in which he integrates the shoes as linchpins of a refreshing new discourse. Häberli suggests playfully engaging universes where aesthetic quality is mixed with humour and ingenuity, settings that speak of creative freedom, uncommon spaces designed to hold uncommon footwear.
