How does living Minnesota influence your style?
Oh gosh. The winters are long and cold so I tend to only want to wear cozy things Dec-March. April comes around and is either still snowy or the grass is turning green and all I want to wear is dresses every day. Over the summer it's very humid, so anything that doesn't have me really wearing anything skin-tight is a win! So. Many. Dresses. and mules and sandals! Fall is really fun too because of all the vibrant colors of nature- you want to match the world around you. You have to be prepared for four completely different seasons to live in Minnesota, so it keeps my wardrobe exciting.
What are your routines for getting ready for the day?
I have a very luxurious skin care routine, make a smoothie bowl or eggs, and sit at my kitchen table and work on my computer the majority of the day for a Non Profit.
Where do you find inspiration?
Who are some of your favorite designers?
Craftsmanship is at the heart of each pair of Huma Blanco shoes.
Huma Blanco is a footwear brand, designed and handmade in Lima, Peru. The line was born of an appreciation for the simple luxury of Peruvian hides and textiles, along with a goal to sustain long-term jobs for shoemakers in its designer's home country.
The raw beauty of these Peruvian materials - such as suede, alpaca and calf hair - inspires the designer, Adriana Crocco. Crocco works with them using natural dyes, or leaving them in their pure form. The line fuses classic silhouettes with interesting construction and unexpected textures.
Huma Blanco is created by Adriana Crocco, a third-generation shoemaker and designer based in Lima. Her Peruvian and Italian shoemaking heritages have led Adriana to an appreciation for quality of materials and construction.
