Before I was born, my father started to work among others end of the 60ies till two decades with different shoes firms together. In collaboration with his partner they imported shoes to Germany and later on to other countries.Castañer, who designed the first wedge pumps for Yves Saint Laurent in the late ’60s, was one of them. So this brand is very familiar for me. All shoes were printed with the label „Castañer by Lapp & Stecher“. In my childhood, our whole celler was full of Castañer shoes. Later I could wear them perfectly, because they where my size – the sample size 37. So, in summary – you can perhaps understand why I am such a shoe addict 😉
Castañer’s classic ‚Carina’wedge pumps are a summer essential. Expertly crafted in Spain from durable canvas, this versatile pair is designed with a jute heel panel woven with cream and natural yarns for a speckled effect. I especially like the ribbon ties that wrap elegantly around the ankle.
For accentuating the legs I styled the comfortable wedge pumps (where I can walk miles with) in combination with a high waist Levi’s cropped denim shorts in dark blue. The off the shoulder blouse from Pixie Market shows off a hint of skin for a sexy and romantic inspired look. For some harmony in this style my wedge pumps matching my blue shorts and the stripes of my top. To give the whole look some color and finally the last touch I chose the Mark Cross bag as the perfect accessory . The inspired by the late heroine, Grace Kelly, the Grace box bag from Mark Cross is very chic and has this special box shape.
Finally the Castañer shoes reminds me of my great childhood and makes me feel home and comfortable!!
