Veronique Branquinho's Camper collaboration. Courtesy photos

Back in 2009, Belgian fashion designer Veronique Branquinho shut down her personal label due to the recession. That doesn't mean she's gone off quietly though -- for the last year she's been involved in an on-going collaboration with Camper, creating modern interpretations on their classic men's sandals and Derby shoes. Now, Branquinho's taking a stab at the women's side.

The Veronique Branquinho for Camper line recently introduced some seriously stellar heels for spring/summer. Available in Camper stores now, the collection consists of three pairs of edgy espadrille-inspired sandals in punchy colors and with beautiful braided detailing throughout. They run for about $215-$250.

While Camper's no stranger to artistic aesthetic (they've collaborated with Antwerp based designer Bernhard Wilhelm and avant-gard designer/artist Maria Blaisse), their women's shoes usually tend to be a lot more substance than high-style. Branquinho's new women's collection has definitely injected a heavy amount of cool factor into the 30-year-old Spanish brand. After all, the company's motto is "imagination walks" and lucky for us, it's clear here that Branquinho has let hers run wild.
