Over the last two fashion weeks, I’ve been seeing quite a number of women carrying Paula Cademartori bags. The colorblocked bags seemed to have gained quite a following, but quite frankly I have yet to be converted.
The bag styles themselves are quite honestly, not extraordinary, but Cademartori is quick to put a signature look to each of her bags (which is a very good move)– that central “stripe” and buckle. To me, Cademartori bags work only when the color combinations/ color blockings are done right.
The Tatiana below for instance, does not really appeal to me at all, perhaps because of the choice of colors. The bag looked rather dull in my opinion.
On the other hand, the Petit Sylvie clutch below is something I would see myself carrying because Cademartori married different pastel colors quite well.
Cademartori makes the Georgia tote her own with that same distinctive buckle on the external pocket, and while the style of the bag is rather bulky and I reckon quite heavy, the right color combination made it look real cute.
And as the buzz about Paula Cademartori’s bags continue on social media sites like instagram, I will wait for that time when I am utterly convinced to get one of her bags (though that Petit Sylvie in pastels is slowly calling out to me haha)
