Casadei’s Spring 2017 Shoes Are as ’80s Glitz as It Gets 

The world’s of footwear and jewelry collided at Casadei’s presentation in Milan on Sept. 22.

As a part of their ongoing initiative to introduce buy-now, wear-now styles each season, the Rimini, Italy-based women’s shoe brand collaborated with jewelry designer Ilenia Corti, on a a capsule collection of three bijoux adorned styles. Two stilettos and one starkly flat sandal (in black or gold) came tricked out with enamel coated gold botanic and animal charms.

Debutta oggi la prima linea di gioielli Casadei realizzata con la designer Ilenia Corti. Memore delle grandezze e degli esperimenti teatrali della couture francese anni Ottanta, la collezione ritrae un’Amazzonia iper realista e dettagliata, feroce e dolcissima. È un baccanale di flora e fauna: orchidee, rane velenose, foliage tropicale, scimmie rampicanti, piante carnivore. Collane, anelli, orecchini più un bracciale custom made. E le calzature che si abbinano ai gioielli o che diventano gioiello. È il sogno che si fa accessorio. La creatività di due eccellenze italiane che si uniscono in una nuova avventura. @casadeiofficial @ileniacortivernissage #casadei #casadeiofficial #casadeishoes #vernissage #vernissagejewellery #casadei #casadeishoes @karlaotto #ileniacorti #jewels #jewellery #casadeishoes

The glitzy effort – which will retail now online and in Casadei stores – also features a small selection of complementary accessories.

For the main line spring ’17 offering, Casadei harkened back to ’80s-era glitz with chain-embroidered, elastic, strappy boots (very bondage-esque, very early Versace). There were also metallic platform mules and woven flats in riotous shades of rose, emerald and sapphire.
