"Iridescence" captures more than one aspect of Ximena Kavalekas' eponymous line of handcrafted python accessories. On one hand, the term refers to one of the many dazzling finishes that bring a signature Miami flamboyance to the timeless collection of bags made in Italy; on the other hand, "iridescent" adequately describes the designer herself, who has a contagious joie de vivre. Born in Ecuador, Kavalekas became a Miamian in 2000. "Miami is in my soul. I feel very Miami," says the designer. It's no surprise, then, that the same bags designed to embody the designer's spirit just as readily speak to Miami's wild, sun-drenched sophistication.
