Keds Camp Oxford with a French toile print twist

What makes these super limited edition Keds for Opening Ceremony sneakers special are the French “toile” print embellishments on the fabric. Usually the stuff of cliched grandmas the world over, the toile prints here get a twist via artist Richard Saja, who re-contextualizes the artform with his own particular sense of humor. As Opening Ceremony describes, “Richard’s reinterpretations subvert the expected daintiness by inserting figures reminiscent of the artist’s childhood doodles: superheroes, monsters, clowns, and mutants. The end result recalls something else along the lines of fabric graffiti, or comic strip tapestry.” Ssuperheroes, monsters and mutants? Say no more. Based on the classic Keds Camp Oxfords, Richard Saja’s revision “France Edition” sneakers will debut next week at Fashion’s Night Out.
