All About Platforms
January 20, 2012 § Leave a comment
If you do not know it already Bionda Castana is a brand name you should learn. Despite sounding Italian, it is a British shoe label run by two London based designers but made in their family owned factory in Italy. Despite only starting in 2007, the label has done well in its short life span and made many celebrity fans on the way (from Lily Allen to Keira Knightley). Their range is wide – from classics perfect as work shoes, to edgy day to day platforms, to master pieces suitable for a night out: they are true to their motto of providing all kinds of shoes a modern woman needs. The brand is positioned at the high end of the price spectrum for designer shoes, with prices varying between £500 and £800.
My favourites from the recent collections are by far the platforms. They also come in varied styles to suit many occasions. My top three picks pictured above are:
- Beau Capretto Light Beige Platforms SS12
- Bea Crepe Satin Leopard Sky Blue SS12
- Miriam Napa Nero Leather Platforms AW11
You can purchase the shoes online at www.mywardrobe.com and in international retailing spots (in London head to The Box or Harvey Nichols). You can also view the collection here.
