Stepping into a Camper store designed by Jaime Hayón is like moving from reality into a dream world. This creator plays with style fusion, combining materials and designing furniture that is always unusual, with a quality verging on handicraft. His spaces are worthy of the shoes they display: imagination is always in the air, and we feel as though we have stepped through the looking glass.
