Castaner – Spanish espadrilles with a long history
The history of the Castaner brand can be traced all the way back to before the Spanish Civil War. With such a long history, you might be expecting a conservative approach to shoe design, but in fact the opposite is true. Castaner espadrilles, sandals and wedges are fresh and modern and absolutely perfect for sunny summer days. With shoes from this brand, you can keep your feel cool, ensure that you look great and create an outfit that incorporates the lovely colours and beautiful woven soles of this amazing footwear.
Castaner – the family that fought
The Spanish Civil War saw soldiers wearing seven-ribbon espadrilles, which led to the first Castaner workshop being privatised by the government of the time. The company continued in the same family until the 1960s when the business underwent a shift, with Isabel Castaner coming to the front of the firm. The footwear became more colourful and fashionable and started to be marketed as the stylish espadrilles we know and love today. Castaner has worked with top fashion houses and has opened stores in various cities, including Barcelona, Tokyo and Paris.
Castaner style through the ages
It’s hard to say whether the modern world would have fallen for the espadrilles of the previous decades, but luckily it’s not an issue because the shoes we have today are thoroughly fabulous and colourful. The understated elegance of these sandals and wedges are superb for wearing with floaty skirts and summer dresses. You can also use them with shorts or even ¾ length Capri pants. The particular beige of the jute soles is an excellent base colour for matching with summer pastels. Match with white or black for an equally striking effect.
