Happy 90th birthday Castañer!
Long live the summer! That’s what Castañer espadrilles seem to say, from the iconic Spanish brand that is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2017. It’s an important landmark that further emphasizes how the brand has become a benchmark in the field of footwear: its creations are entirely made in Spain, with expert craftsmanship, tradition and style. The Castañer story has its roots back in the 1920s, while their first wedge espadrilles were created in 1970 together with Yves Saint Laurent.
There are two main trends for S/S 2018, St. Rémy and El Paraìso, both in classic Castañer style reinterpreted with a glamorous, witty twist. The former, inspired by Provence, evokes the idea of the transition from winter to spring, with cotton, denim, fine embroidery, gingham and ultra-soft leathers. The latter, which is definitely summery, evokes the beach paradises of Tulum: warm, vibrant colours, with raffia and crochet, for a super fashionable look.
