Andreia Chaves is a celebrity designer that is not a household name yet. However her creativity and art are standing out already.
Footwear celebrity fashion designer Andreia Chaves treats each shoe as an individual work of art. Raised in the busy metropolis of Brazil Andreia Chaves doesn’t find chaos annoying. Instead she understands that beauty can be found in chaos not only away from it. This understanding of chaos is a concept that is revealed in her footwear designs.
Andreia Chaves has been intensely studying form, texture & visual effect, and experimenting with different materials on footwear design. Recently Andreia Chaves has introduced ‘Invisible’ concept shoes; covered with mirrors, they are meant to constantly change appearance as their mirror-covered surface reflects their surroundings.
These “concept shoes” are too zany to actually wear; unless, of course, you’re Lady Gaga. In these model shoes, Andreia Chaves experiments with material and optics.
Andreia Chaves in her own words, about these ‘invisible shoes:
“The fact that I grew up in a chaotic city 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.”
