Only few Mallorcan brands are as successful on an international level. In fact, many people are not even aware of Camper’s Mallorcan origin. And certainly not where the name comes from. With Camper Lab the popular shoemaker takes the art of shoemaking a step further. For a couple of weeks, Camper Lab Palma opens its doors. And the pop up store in the heart of old town looks like an exhibition of shoe art.
Housed in the former store of Cortana, the great fashion designer who moved to new stunning premises. And right across from Nano Coffee, Camper Lab Palma attracts shoe lovers and passers-by. With an eccentric style that doesn’t even bother with restraint. While individual shoes already seem sculptural, others are statements of self-confidence and joie de vivre. You put them on and get in party mode right away.
Camper refers to el campo, the rural area. Well, the brand from Inca has made its way into the urban world long ago. And Camper Lab is the logical next step ahead for those who love to be avant-garde. If you want to catch a glimpse, the Camper Lab Palma is open until end of October.
Palma is a great place for shoe aficionados, anyway. Because Mallorca got a long history of shoe making. And in addition to traditional brands a couple of new ones design and even manufacture footwear on the island. From typical Mallorca shoes to Berlin meets Mediterranean, from casual to dress up. Yours to discover.
