In the face of fashion, there has never been a shortage of endless possibilities, devout creativity and profound displays of originality that seek to bridge the realms of art and fashion. As it stands, the industry has continued to make strides by serving as an open forum for a new league of burgeoning designers that seek to propel visionary thinking, while also incorporating diversity. The latest designer-duo to take the reigns is newcomers, Eckhaus Latta—designed by Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta. Together, the pair is breaking down barriers with a radical design approach that infuses avant-garde elements with a new sense of refinement—and on Saturday night, the designers revealed their next big unveil.

To celebrate their ongoing footwear collaboration with Camper, Eckhaus Latta devised a conceptual Halloween costume contest in the Playa Las Tunas Banquet Hall in Koreatown—which was filled to the brim with a myriad of fantastical looks from the night’s most notable attendees.

Read on to see how the blossoming brand conceptualized their Camper collaboration and behold the evening’s most outlandish costumes.

How did the collaboration between you and Camper originally come together?

We were admirers of Camper prior to them approaching us—their original brand ethos and collaborative nature with the Together program are things that we were very drawn to. It has been a great experience to collaborate and work with them over these past few seasons.

What did you see in Camper that made for a strong collaboration?

They are very open and excited and open to challenging themselves—allowing us to push them out of their comfort zone.

How did you seek to give each shoe from the collaboration a fresh new take on style?

It mirrors a similar process of designing the collections in that there is no singular way into how ideas are formed.

The designs are said to be ‘anti-fashion.’ What does anti-fashion mean to you and how was that incorporate into your designs?

Not falling victim to trends and caring too much what others think.
