BIONDA CASTANA LUXERY SHOES&SANDALS ARE EDITORS NEW “IT” PEDS












Words, Images Judith Ecochard

We are lucky ladies sometimes.

Last week, we were able to grab some time to chat with the amazingly talented and lovely Nataila Barberi-half of the duo (with Jennifer Portman) helming the chic shoe collection, Bionda Castana.







This London-based design team may hail from the investment banking and marketing worlds…but they have quickly captured the hearts of posh editorial types with their barely two years old venture in glam accessories.











The results should give all women more than ample reason to treat themselves to these impeccably crafted shoes and sandals made from the finest materials available (buttery leathers, shiny patent, and solid hardware used for studding and oval eyelets). Even the heel shapes are delicate, sturdy and sexy---







Actually, invest might be a better word…as these multi-strapped sandals, boots, pumps and hip booties…are modern classics that are as well made- as well as comfortable. A phenomena not often seen/endured in high heeled kickers.







Plus, we could not believe how every exquisite style had so many color and material options. We were wowed espcially considering this is a fairly new line.







It is really a tribute to the Italian (where else) factory and craftsmen’s deep knowledge…that these shoes are as nice as any that we have ever seen.







Sophisticated beyond belief...


Bravo.

These ladies deserve all of the accolades sure to come their way…and then some. Retailers should stock up.
