Trend in Fashion - Casadei fall23 presented in Milan

Casadei fall23 presented in Milan

A sinuous vinyl strappy sandal that hugs the instep, giving a light bondage effect while exuding extreme femininity.

The Casadei lexicon arises from the uninterrupted dialogue between Cesare Casadei’s creativity and

the female world. It is a conversation made up of continuous observation and a love for beauty, which

guides the gentle but inexorable engineering of building a shoe or a bag: objects of perfect design

conceived to respond to a precise function, but also expressions of a way of being. Each collection

defines a kaleidoscope of attitudes, finding its coherence in plurality, as well as in the absoluteness of

the shapes expressed through the research of materials. The balance of the different components is

resolved in a sign that is unequivocal: clean and subtly seductive.

This season the sense of plurality is particularly accentuated. It arises from the response to the

fragmentation of the contemporary world, from the certainty that never before has identity been

expressed in such a multifaceted, swirling, non-univocal way. There are no more barriers, of use and

occasion, and not even of generations. Today every woman can decide to look what she wants and

when she wants it; she can explore different aspects of her personality at different times and

occasions of the same day, and always be herself.

The collection follows this prismatic flow. The ultra-thin heels and strong silhouettes of Rachel or the

asymmetrical Melodie t-bar, as well as the bold and pointed shapes of Superblade and Ultravox

are thus contrasted by the affirmative commando soles of Generation C, or the tubular volumes,

amplified by the use of cruelty free fur, of Yeti.

The chunky-heeled Cleo boots have a yè-yè quirk to them, while the Anastasia craquelè booties

play with the balance of volumes by transfiguring the classic Texan stye. Casadei is naturally

synonymous with elegant sensuality, with shoes as an instrument of seduction.

Here too the expressive range is wide, and ranges from the hymn to the sinuous lines of Divina, the

new pump, all curves and points, to the elongated thirties hints of Geraldine, from the play of solids

and voids of Galaxy to the retro futurist purity of Elodie, with acidized effects that liquefy the sculpted

heel in haloes of digital allure. The bejeweled shoe, another must, is luminous and sidereal in the

flashes of Stratosphere, or is touched with wild elements such as the multicolor Mongolian fur of

Annabel or the fur buckle combined with craquelè leather of Aria.

Small handbags or shoulder and bucket bags give further roundness to the variety of feminine

expressions. It’s the details that set the tone: metal handles, crystal pavé, chain links like a logo in

contrast with leather. An expanded, ever-evolving lexicon keeps being defined.
