Italian luxury footwear brand Casadei has created a collection of jewelry in collaboration with designer ILENIA CORTI. The CASADEI BY ILENIA CORTI collection also includes sandals, which not only go well with jewelry, but themselves become a work of jewelry.
“Jewelry has always been a very important source of inspiration for Casadei collections and more than once became part of the most sophisticated and luxurious shoe models. When we thought about creating a collection that would unite the world of shoes and jewelry, we immediately realized that we wanted to realize this idea together with Ilenia Corti. We already worked with her in the past, and immediately realized that our creative vision and energy are absolutely in tune. In addition, the feminine aesthetics of her creations and her passion for work and the creative process are very close to me personally, ”says Cesare Casadei, Casadei creative director, about the collaboration.
The jewelry collection includes necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings made of brass, enamel and Swarovski crystals. Separately, it is worth noting a silver bracelet decorated with rock crystal, precious stones and enameled details by the unrivaled masters of the House of Santagostino di Valenza.
For this collection, Cesare Casadei created high-heeled sandals and flat soles. Sculptural and spectacular, these models stand out clearly due to the decor placed on a flexible gold plate decorating the upper part of the foot. Sandals are presented in two versions: in golden leather with multi-colored stones and in black suede with golden monochrome decor.
The CASADEI BY ILENIA CORTI collection was presented at Milan Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2017 and will be sold in Casadei boutiques and at casadei.com.
