Jeffrey Campell Contest on Karmaloop

Jeffrey Campbell Paradigm Collection Contest

Jeffrey Campbell "The Paradigm Collection" Contest

Prepare your eyeballs for the first ever Jeffrey Campbell x Karmaloop capsule collection! Yup, you heard us — a set of some futuristic Frankenstein kicks that only the freakish mind of our shoe buyer Joe Farese and the always over-the-top Jeffrey Campbell could dream up. Says Joe: “I think sometimes everyone imagines themselves as a robot, and we all have a little bit of a dark side. Now girls just have the footwear to match!”
So what are these styles all about? Playing off the current sportswear trend ruling the ready-to-wear scene, we’re bringing you six shoes spread across three exclusive styles: Ascension, Cyrax, and Succession. Without further ado, we excitedly introduce our killer lookbook with illustrations from Phillip Mimms (better known as Human Aliens or HMN ALNS). Do you dig?
OK, trick question! Clearly you do. Enter our giveaway for a shot at winning the whole set of Paradigm shoes. Our grand winner gets the entire collection and 5 more entrants will each receive 1 pair from the collection. Contest Ends 8/24. Winners will be notified by email.
*While supplies last. Should supplies run out a Gift Code will be issued equal to the prize value.

When books had taste in clothing

I used to love my grandma reading me these books when I was a child. Snuggled in a warm bed. It was one of my favorite memories of her before she passed away. R.I.P grandma xx
