She doesn’t have a religion.
the stars, flowers, ocean, and herself.
This was the quote which inspired this fairytale collection for SS19 something which sings to my soul. It just reminds me of the sound of waves along the shore untamable and free. Inspired by nature – mother earths perfect design in flowers, feathers, leaves and animal patterns. Paula Cademartori’s Brazilian soul guided her in the search for unexpected color combinations. Paula’s Italian discipline drove the choice of the most exquisite materials, which we used to convey elegance, comfort and functionality. ‘My shoes are really made for walking. My bags are really made for a life on the move.’ The presentation itself housed the bags and shoes in larger than life fairytale size books which took one on a mystical journey of enchantment.
For cute options there were gingham kitten heels, for the fierce ones multicolor flats embellished with python prints and flamboyant feathers. There wereedgy leopard wedges combining suede, patent leather and bamboo. And for the nights on the town chic stiletto sandals enriched with precious crystal details wrapping around the feet. And for the bags there is Daria – a curvy semicircular shape and can be worn as both a cross body and a top handle. She comes in many variations, from a gingham fabric overprinted with a graphic flower to intarsia leather and ayers. Experimenting with materials and treatments, Paula played with high-frequency technologies to create 3D embossed textures This was accessory heaven!
