We’ve been big fans of Cameron Helm and he’s at it again with his signature paint splatter designs.Helm’s latest footwear line amps up his already well-known hand-painted, abstract drip style similar to that of Jackson Pollock. For his latest men’s shoes collection, he’s moved to lighter shades for the summer on an array of different types of shoes from high-top sneakers to derbies. We think they’re perfect with jeans, shorts, or dressy summer trousers.
If you wonder how he does it, the prints are digital reproductions of his original paintings. This time round his designs are used artistically on a combination of materials from tough canvas to hearty leather. They’re available at either Nordstrom’s or Forty Five Ten. We’re also thinking, it’s a great Father’s Day gift. It’s not that far away.
