Italian footwear brand CASADEI presented the Spring Summer 2023 Collection with a presentation held on September 22nd, during the recently finished Milano Fashion Week. For this season, Casadei launches itself to the future by entering the NFT world and inaugurating Casadei 3.0 on the Decentraland virtual space, with the help of Cesare’s daughter, Arianna Casadei and Another-1, an innovative web3 platform for luxury fashion. Opening up to a new community to explore its DNA through an immersive “real life” experience, Casadei launches users into a retro futuristic metropolis among skyscrapers, mega screens and neon lights.
Our job is a gamble. My parents always repeated the mantra: “Be at the service of women”: it is in their happiness that we can understand if we have done a good job. This longing for something beautiful, unique and well-made always leads us to new challenges. It is the value of knowledge, the mad flight of Ulysses beyond the Pillars of Hercules, beyond the extreme limit of the known world. Going where nobody has gone before, Casadei is part of the movement dimension. Like Giovanni Pascoli’s ‘Il fanciullino’, we have curious, clear and dreamy eyes ready to discover the intimate essence of things. – Cesare Casadei
Tactility and sensations, a family passion, a dialogue between generations. Emotions have always run wild in front of a pair Casadei shoes: upon opening the box, a women is taken back to her childhood desires, while a little girl dreams of the woman she will become. – from Casadei
Tradition and experimentation, sexiness, psychedelia and avant-garde virtuosity come together in the Casadei summer. This opens with a psychedelic heel that is reminiscent of the curves of the famous chair by Danish designer Verner Panton: Casadei’s spring-summer 2023 inaugurates Elodie, a “landscape-shoe” among pumps, sandals and slingbacks characterized by an unprecedented handwritten 3D logo. – from Casadei
