"Friends make the best collaborators, Andrea Vargas Dieppa was in Mexico when she clapped eyes on the perfect shoe - a men's lace-up with just the right amount of style. She talked to her friend and fellow colombian, Elisa Restrepo, got some samples made up and started selling. An amalgamation of their last names, tastes and vision, Dieppa Restrepo is about the function and form of classic mens footwear infused with a touch of feminine frivolity and flirtatiousness. From pastel-hued patent leather to spangly metallic accoutrements, hand-made in Mexico, each shoe is a testament to the age-old artisanal craft of shoe-making - from brogues to boots, loafers to oxfords, and everything in between."
I'm such a sucker for beautiful packaging and My Chameleon made life feel a little sweeter with these surprises.
