Special Castaner – Manolo Blahnik capsule collectionBoth of Spanish origin, for the 90th anniversary of Castañer, the Spanish brand and Manolo Blahnik presented a limited edition collection together, where the naturalness of Castañer’s acclaimed jute espadrilles is paired with the sensuality of Manolo’s stiletto heels.
To celebrate its 90th anniversary, the Spanish brand Castaner – known and renowned for its espadrilles – launches a capsule collection realized in collaboration with the stylist Manolo Blahnik. Starting November 13, the collection will be made available on the company’s online store, as well as in the brand’s flagship stores and other special select stores starting in December, as part of its Spring-Summer 2018 pre-collection. The new project features two lines – “Manolo by Day” and “Manolo by Night” – proposing 3 models each, which come available in 6 different colours.
Thus, the two spirits of Castañer and Blahnik come together to create models characterized by typical ankle strap fastenings and jute uppers, which nevertheless see flat espadrilles take on surprisingly pointed toes, while classic Castañer espadrilles substitute the wedge with the sensual Manolo stiletto, which comes available in two different heights. The idea is to continue down this path of collaborations, which will see the brand partner with a new designer next year.
