Founded by Lluís Castañer and his cousin Tomàs Serra, Castañer has been making espadrilles in Catalonia since 1927. The brand is famed for turning the classic rope-soled shoes into the ultimate stylish Mediterranean footwear and has collaborated with huge fashion names from Yves Saint Laurent in the 1970s to Spanish icon Manolo Blahnik last season. For spring/summer 2018, the brand looked to the colours of summer and a Mexican fiesta for inspiration. The Acai sandal, with its woven platform sole and playful pom-pom detail, is certainly made for a party.
