Camper Couture

Camp Collection

What It Is: Slow clap for ingeniousness CAMP Collection. Meet this relatively new upstart fashion brand out of California that has captured the nostalgic look and feel of those 70s and 80s camp films – or at least, their wardrobes. Producing quarterly collections of ringer tees, short shorts, and chilled out rompers and tanks, this awesome brand trades on actual catchphrases from favourite retro films (‘Hickie from Kenickie is one of their latest’) and more generic ‘camp’ styles to add a little old school flavour to your closet. Whether you’re heading to a music festival or looking for some fun throwback fashion, your search ends here!

Who It’s For: Your best friend, as a quirky birthday present. Your kid, to rock at their own summer camp adventure. Your spouse, so you can get all dual decked out for the festival circuit this summer.

What It Costs: Prices start at about $35 USD, almost nothing is over $100. Shipping is $30 flat rate from their site, but if you check their stockist page you may be able to find some items elsewhere for better rates.

Where It’s At: Visit the CAMP Collection site here. Or try Urban Outfitters.

    I like the retro look of this line! If go for the boyfriend shorts because they look comfy.

    I thought those fashions would stay buried in the 70’s and 80’s. But if I had to choose one I’d opt for the “Check You Later V-Neck Ringer Tee”. (their prices seem a bit on the steep side for me, $103 American for a pair of leggings, yikes)
