Designer Shoes: Paula Cademartori


Paula Cademartori Lotus sandals | 115mm/4.5″ heel | shop on sale at Matches, Moda Operandi and FarFetch.

We’re crazy for these signature Lotus sandals by delightfully quirky Italian-Brazilian desgner Paula Cademartori. Gaining popularity for her whimsical crossbody bags, her footwear collection lends playful pop art for your feet too.


Lotus features an anguled block heel, corset lace-up front design, long wrap-around leather laces and colorful fanned out design wrapping around the heel. Half sizes are available and we’re equally in love with this multicolor style:

In addition to the blooming flowers, welcoming sunshine and green grass, strappy open-toe sandals are another sign that spring has sprung. Before you know it, it will be time to pack the boots away, treat yourself to a pedi (we suggest trying Dior’s new lilac polish) and slip into some strappy sandals – strappier the better.
