So fashion week has me thinking straight ahead to next Spring, when we can get back to neon colours (well colour) and lighter fabrics. So if you are anyway like me and like planning for the future, and that includes your wardrobe, you will drool over these.
Casadei have the most amazing collection of shoes for next season which underpin everything a shoe should represent, feminity and sexiness! Creative Director, Cesare Casadei says of the collection, “I have been thinking non-stop about python, color, design, music and rich materials but wanted to mix them with the special techniques and craftsmanship that only we can achieve.” The inspiration is clear from the four key looks.
Python, a new focus for the label extends to the real thing and replicas. An intricate laser cut embossing technique, for example, has recreated the exotic skin with three different finishings: a shiny patent calf leather in glossy bright colors, a metallic leather in gold, rose gold, pewter and bronze, and a matte leather version in an earth palette. In another treatment, python is printed onto raffia that features a natural-looking, scaly surface. Real python skin, offered in a T-strap flat sandal and perfect point toe pump, completes the offering.
Architecture introduces more structured pieces including the ever popular wedge. With the Calder wedge, Casadei has reinterpreted the artist’s concept of space, using two abstract elliptical elements in wood or metal to frame precious materials. The Fontana wedge conveys a sense of geometric three dimensionality with its deep polished wood and steel frames. The negative space bounces off a cork exterior and neon interior, creating a sense of perspective. Also sculptural is the Blade Wedge, an evolution of Casadei’s famous blade stiletto heel, which features a sharp sliver of metal that slices through patent leather wedge.
Get back to disco with Elastic, with new fabrics which echo comfort and style are key to this look. A two-tone iridescent stretch material, made from a super fine metal and elastic fiber weave, was designed specifically by Casadei to create a holographic effect.
And finally, yep you guessed it, Flourescent. Neon colours will get you into Spring and paired with a slim stiletto this look will be available in a range of spectacular colours.
The collection is not available yet (it only showed in Milan today!), but if you like the look of these, you will love the Autumn/Winter collection which is available by clicking here (mycorner.com) or over at Yoox.
