When two beloved fashion brands meet and converge, the results are never disappointing. In fact the results are downright exciting putting it mildly. This is what happens when print-centric Missoni and the Spanish espadrille king Castañer decide to collaborate on a collection that will surely make your summer burn even hotter. The Castañer x Missoni collaboration features a delicious assortment of bright colors including the unmistakable Missoni zigzag print in addition to other geometric designs in all shapes and sizes.
Angela Missoni admitted to thoroughly enjoying the experience of re-designing the famous platform espadrille in Missoni’s signature colors and patterns. The collection of shoes and handbags features plenty of colors, patterns, geometric prints including Missoni’s motifs.
Castañer was first founded in Banyoles, Catalunia back in 1927 by Luis Castañer and Tomàs Serra, while Missoni was born in 1953 near Milan by Rosita and Ottavio Missoni. So where history is concerned, there is no shortage of heritage or craftsmanship where these two are concerned. What’s even more awe-inspiring is their ability to conform with the times and still be as hip and trendy as ever. This collaboration is aiming to cement the value and relevance of these brands who, between the both of them, have been around for over 150 years!
