The sculptural debut footwear collection of Andreia Chaves
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…..
