First Dibs – Paula Cademartori SS16 Accessories


Who doesn’t know Paula Cademartori, needs to quickly look her up and keep on the fashion radar! The success of Paula Cademartori‘s accessory line is based on an aesthetic vision focused on intense care for details, combined with the determination to carry out production in Italy. Each bag is conceived as a design object to own and love. The precious seal of each model is a metal buckle, personally designed by Paula supported by her background in jewellery and industrial design. Her new SS16 collection that was presented in Milan a few weeks ago tells one, major thing – fringes and colours will storm the streets next summer… in both, handbags and shoes!


Furry Luxe


The new era at Gucci which appeared within the arrival of Alessandro Michele brought a lot of surprises. For example, these loafers. At first sight, they look like the famous, super-luxe Gucci jetset loafers. But then, the luxurious boredom is broken thanks to the fur-filled lining. Aren’t they… insane? I mean, they are too fun for office and too fancy for a pajama party, but in overall, they are great. Oh, and they are totally unisex.

They are as soft as socks. They are as casual as ballerinas. Slip-ons which are the perfect-shoes-on-the-go are making a loud comeback. It was Maryam Nassir Zadeh who made the cult in New York – and then, Phoebe Philo of Celine made them cool again during her recent fashion shows. What’s nice about them is the fact, that they are so seasonless – I mean, you can wear it during summer and winter, and they always look good and on time. So, in other words, they should be present in your everyday wardrobe!

Shoes Like Pottery


Japan-based label Shoes Like Pottery crafts classic trainers with the closest attention to detail. Featuring carefully chosen materials, each shoe is built on a special vulcanised rubber sole and fired in a kiln using a unique process called ka-ryu for long lasting durability and wear. Shoes Like Pottery features high-quality, beautifully textured fabric, hand-sewn by the skilled craftsmen of Kurume in Japan. As the owner of one of these shoes, I feel really happy – I sought for the perfect pair of trainers for a very long time, and these are not only comfortable, but super stylish! I see that the new generation of these little, conceptual brands from Japan are the one to watch for.










Rings on My Feet


Martina Grasselli is the new-comer star of Italian shoes industry – after her latest AW15 presentation, I am in love. Her signature “rings” and “piercing” footwear is mind-blowing and feel truly unique. She has worked with Stella McCartney, Angelo Figus, Breil Milano, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Christian Louboutin, creating collections of accessories, offering her input both in terms of style and in terms of products. COLIAC, her brand, was founded in 2009 – it is a modern fuse of costume jewellery and tomboy-like shoes. It is characterised by an ironic tone with a hint of the surreal, artsy edge, making the shoes strongly recognizable not only in Milan, but also in other fashion capitals. Which ones do you fancy the most?
