At first, I didn’t really understand Casadei Spring 2011. The collection features everything from leopard-print stilettos to peach suede 70s-style platforms to dainty lace kitten heels, not to mention denim-look knee boots that feature what can only be described as a tromp l’oeil fly. Where’s the common thread?
After some thought, though, I’m not sure that cohesion within a shoe collection really makes a lick of difference to consumers. How well one shoe matches the rest of the shoes with which it was produced seems more like fodder for critics than a serious consideration for customers, and most of these shoes seem like they’ll have at least some kind of audience. Even if their audiences are all quite different.
