Hey women of Portugal. There’s a new brand of fashion footwear in town. Guava! Its designs are “a fusion of geometric seduction, urban experience and new design perspective.” Slip on these shoes and transform your feet into a showcase of couture and architecture.



Guava is the brainchild of Portuguese designer Ines Caleiro. She conceived her vision for the product line while living in the U.S., and quickly returned to Portugal to begin developing and building her brand. Caleiro honed her geometric aesthetic studying graphic design at IADE in Lisbon. She followed this with courses in fashion and product design at the London College of Fashion. Here, she won a “Best Student” award, which lead to an invitation to work at Jimmy Choo.

Coleiro describes her product as “asymmetry, design, innovation and a touch of glamour, where shapes and structures cohabitate harmoniously.” For her Fall/Winter 2011 collection, she drew inspiration from architecture. Geometry is the main concept and accent colors become graphic focal points creating a duality of concepts.
