Italian design company Kartell is strengthening its collaboration with the Brazilian designer Paula Cademartori and launching a new capsule collection for fall. This includes a clutch and a pair of rain boots inspired by the colorful aesthetic codes of both brands.
The Rosas oval clutch is crafted in transparent or colored plastic, embellished with a series of rich 3-D detailing, like geometric micro patterns, hearts and stars. A star-shaped clasp and a chain strap complete the accessory, which is offered in the translucent hues of crystal, gray, amber, petrol and blue. In addition, bicolor options and a matte black model are available.
The Barbarella rubber rain boots showcase tailoring stitching as its main motif. Available in blue, black, nude and a raspberry shade, they are also offered in a more eccentric version with 3-D rubber flower applications.
The accessories are currently presented to buyers at the Massimo Bonini showroom in Milan and will be available on Kartell’s online store and select department stores worldwide starting from September.
The partnership between Kartell and Paula Cademartori launched last year, with the introduction of the spring 2017 capsule collection that included the Parati bag and Claudia sandals.
The Paula Cademartori label joined Renzo Rosso’s OTB group in October. Kartell started developing fashion capsules back in 2008. Former collaborations include those with Alessandro dell’Acqua’s No. 21 and Christian Lacroix.
