Paula Cademartori made headlines when she debuted her first collection of handbags in 2011. Since, the Brazil-born, Milan-based designer has flourished, while staying true to her roots. With colorful prints and designs, the Brazilian influence is strong, while the fine Italian craftsmanship of her handbags is clearly evident.
Recently, the designer made her forte into shoes. These Lotus Lace-Up Sandals are inspired from Paula Cademartori’s Nouveau Risque bag series, as they celebrate the beautiful shape of a lotus flower. I love the seductive lace up front, and bright colors that blend seamlessly with the neutral tan colors. These would look ultra-chic paired with a pair of cuffed boyfriend jeans, tan button-up, and a bright purple bag.
