Made in Italy using only Italian-made
materials, Paula Cademartori is a strong advocate of embodying a true Italian
brand. Since debuting for Spring/Summer 2011, Paula Cademartori has now
established her namesake brand as an in vogue bags and accessories label with
instantly recognisable details. The magic happens right at the heart of Milan
in a headquarters designed by Italian tastemakers, where a unique perspective
of modernism personifies the brand.
Conventional modernism with a distinct slant.
Colours with a composed twist. Fabrics and textures with a contrasting
statement. With a background in industrial design and fashion accessories as
well as a stint with Versace, Paula Cademartori has managed to combine her
industry know-how and love for the seemingly unconventional into something not
quite seen before in the industry.
Paula Cademartori’s designs are made as
wearable works of art. Feminine shapes here and a pop of whimsical fun there
result in enduring collections of statement-making bags and accessories. Two
main collections – Heritage and Radical – cement this notion.
For Pre-Spring 2016, the Heritage
collection explores a luxuriant secret garden where exotic birds and
multi-coloured floral can be found. The imagery is vivid, captivating, and full
of texture – courtesy of thread embroidery and suede inlays which are
precision-cut and expertly sewed together. The Radical collection on the other
hand, pays a subtle tribute to nature. Beautiful digital printed flowers on
leather are juxtaposed against micro fringe edges. Such intricacies are an
eloquent display of pure Italian craftsmanship and that is something we don’t
Amidst the colourful displays lies an
emblem, a metal buckle that exemplifies the artisanal brilliance of Paula Cademartori. This buckle is applied as key finishes to all her bags as well as
her hot-of-the-rack shoe collection. It is a modern logo like a stamp of
approval from Paula Cademartori herself that design ingenuity comes first and
not mainstream conventionality. This is where Paula Cademartori makes her mark.
Kendall Jenner, Chiara Ferragni, Olivia
Palermo, and Singapore’s very own Esther Quek have all in turn given their own
stamps of approval to Paula Cademartori. With a bold stance in design, function,
and detail at the core, one thing is for sure and that is Paula Cademartori’s
star is on the rise.
