The sculptural debut footwear collection  of Andreia Chaves


Andreia-Chaves-leather-wood

Brazillian footwear designer Andreia Chaves has launched her extraordinary debut footwear collection as part of her degree course  in Design of Footwear and Accessories.from which she graduates next February  in Florence.

Andreia grew up in n the busy metropolis of Sao Paulo, Brazil  where she learned to search out u beauty amongst the chaos. Each of the  shoes in her launch collection  is an individual work of art.  Her training in Florence in texture & visual effects, has acted as the catalyst for her fearless experimentation with different materials in the creation of her visionary footwear design collection..

She says, “The fact that I grew up in a chaotic metropolis like Sao Paulo, full of contrasts, being in contact with such diversity and constant exposure to different visual inputs, has inspired me in how I think and conceptualize my shoes. Looking at my work, I can clearly see influence coming from my South American sense of versatility with an element of the European experiences I have lived, thrown into the mix.

…..no need for conversation with a pair of Andreia’s creations…they really would speak for themselves…. a definate conversation  piece……! If this is the level of work that Andreia is producing before  graduating…..watch this space…..
