Missoni Castañer

Missoni Castañer collaboration is a wonderful gift to all shoe lovers. The two companies have what is a called a natural creative synergy. Missoni is a legendary Italian label known for its famous "psychedelic" zigzag pattern that is iconic of the late 60s and the 70s. Castañer, very popular in Italy, has time and time again come out with a number of espadrille collections featuring amazing artisan-grade textile patterns. So, one could definitely say that the Missoni Castañer collaboration is a match made in heaven.

Castañer’s Big Birthday

It was Castañer's big birthday the other day - the iconic Spanish espadrille firm is 90 years old. I have professed my love for this brand countless times on this blog. One of the most popular Castañer models these days is the "Carina" espadrille wedge. The brand is currently running a draw - every day until April 16, 2017, you can win a pair of "Carinas" by going to Castañer's FB page or through their website. If you don't win, there is a very attractive version of the "Carina" espadrille currently being sold on FarFetch.
