Spring Preview: Candela

Sophisticated meets bohemian in Candela’s spring ’11 collection. South American-born designers Natalia Kuks-Jacobs and Gabriela Perezutti-Isacson mix Native American beading and metal detail with Victorian structure in line. Boots and oxfords are lightened up with woven and mesh leather paneling. The 50-style collection includes leather treatments in colorful stripes, braiding and laser cutouts. And the neutral palette has been enhanced with metallic and bright color pops. Priced between $220 for flats and $450 for boots, the offering is sold at high-end retailers, including Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale’s.
