Snapshots: Paula in Vitoria

July 31st, 2013

There’s no place like home.

 

Although she loves to travel the world over, designer Paula Hermanny keeps strong ties to her roots in Brazil.  On a recent visit to the island city of Vitória in the state of Espírito Santo, Paula rediscovered the joys of her childhood town:

 

She spent quality time with extended family and even visted a relative’s farm.  Paula remembers spending many a weekend in this rustic setting as a child.

 

 

Art and beauty seemed to follow Paula at every turn.  She admired a self portrait painted by her grandmother Joana.  Joana was a source of style inspiration for Paula and her influence can still be seen in what has become the ViX signature style

 

 

Of course, no trip for Paula is ever without a visit to the beach!  The designer found time for stand-up paddle boarding, a favorite activity she does whenever the ocean is nearby.
