There’s no mistaking designer Paula Cademartori‘s inspiration came from The Cayman Islands for her S/S13 bag collection.  The bags throughout never fall short from embodying the beachside vistas, summer sunsets and natural materials such as palm  + rattan.  Featuring patterns + structured shapes with great attention to detail, playing up their 1950’s nuances with modern lines, including the milled buckle with engraved PC initials, jewel-chains on the shoulder straps and the hand-made inlays on the top handles, these bags are bound to be on everyone’s ‘must have’ list for when it starts feeling hot again.

Made of nappa leather and sometimes suede, with the occasional lizard patchwork motif and gold studded detail or shining glittering fabric and reflecting calf, what’s not to love.

With a color palette that ranges from bubblegum, sky blue and banana yellow, don’t you just want to break out your bikini and sunnies, hoping your premature preparation brings back Spring just a lot faster next year?  True, the bags tend to be on the structural side, which isn’t a bad thing at all – blame Paula’s industrial design background for that one –  but by having soft curves in the form of soft front flaps, for instace, they’re lines are softened.

These are definitely the types of bags you’d build your look around, not the other way around.
