“She has amazing style and knows exactly what she likes,” said Casadei creative director Cesare Casadei of Elena Perminova, the Russian model and socialite who he announced a new collaboration with at the brand’s fall ’17 presentation.
The five-piece collection caters to the travel wardrobe needs of Perminova, the wife of Russian oligarch Alexander Lebedev. “You don’t bring your whole wardrobe,” Casadei added.
And why not? “She’s a mom and leads a very full life,” said Casadei. “The idea we came up with was to create her ideal shoes — versatile, simple and chic.”
And chic they are: a flat biker moto boot, two over the knee styles (one pointed, one laced and open toe), an ankle bootie and a champagne silk pump with signature blade heel rounded out the wearable capsule, which hits stores in September.
