Posted Jun 10, 2010 by gravitypope in camper together, bernhard willhelm, spring 2010, women's shoes, camper

Belgian designer Bernhard Willhelm's collaboration with Camper Together had a lot of people in the office wondering just how these funky sandals would look on a foot.  The designer's signature designs have interpreted recycled and eco-friendly materials into wearable art.

Google didn't offer much for pictures in terms of real people in these shoes, so we took it upon ourselves to do the world a favour.  What do you think? (Click on the pictures to zoom in.)

Mr. Hare spring 2010

Posted Jan 28, 2010 by gravitypope in men's shoes, mr. hare, spring 2010



Gentlemen, we have very important footwear news - gravitypope is proud to add Mr. Hare to our list of brands. We have been drooling over these impeccably designed men's shoes since the AW09 collection launched and the SS10 collection 'Hot Steppers' confirmed this is a brand we MUST have.

Mr. Hare, the person, had an impressive career in PR, as a design consultant with Karrimore, was a marketing consultant for a long list of footwear and sport brands plus he opened 2 successful shops in London before starting Mr. Hare the brand - a brand that took 360 days from conception to fruition after a visit to a roadside tapas bar in Spain. Mr. Hare designs his shoes wherever he chooses. Currently handmade in Empoli (Tuscany, Italy), Mr. Hare will be made wherever the greatest manufacturer best suited to the task at hand is located.

For SS10 'Hot Steppers' is a dedication to a selection of Dancehall generals who through their sheer brilliance have given us reason to tear up the dance floors across all continents. Above the thrill of music that moves your physical and emotional state, there is only love in Mr. Hares humble opinion. For SS10, the major emphasis is on the materials. Mr. Hare wanted to create something with the presence of the AW09 'Purest Form' Collection, but with a much greater depth of character. The heart of the collection is made of Vachetta, a vegetable tanned leather that isn't produced in such an environmentally damaging way and the leather retains more of it's natural characteristics. These shoes must be polished regularly with natural bees wax polish and in return they will age and grow with you forming a unique patina and colouring that is distinct and unique. The more love you give them; the more reason they will give you to love them back.
