Bionda Castana is Italian for "Blonde Brunette" and indeed, the company is run by two London based designers, Jennifer Portman and Natalia Barbieri, who are not only blonde (Jennifer) and brunette (Natalia), but also design shoes that should be placed at the very heart of a woman's wardrobe.
Established in 2007, the brand has rapidly gained recognition and in 2008 Bionda Castana won the award for Best New Accessories Designer at the "Who is on Next/Vogue Italia" Event in Rome. The brand has also received recognition from both the media and the fashion world and has been stocked at my-wardrobe and Browns Fashion, one of the leading online designer clothing retailers.
The brand is also stocked in many high end retailers and premier stores, including Browns and Dover Street Market.
In the ladies' own words:"We design, create and sell unique and beautifully crafted, fine quality footwear that inspires and delights intelligent, freethinking women worldwide"
The Bionda Castana range of shoes and sandals is manufactured in Italy. The range is edgy and current, and the polished range is also tough and hard wearing, made from the most luxurious leathers imagineable.
Celebrity clients include Chloe Sevigny, Kate Moss and Rhianna.
Although based in the UK, both my-wardrobe.com and The Outnet offer worldwide shipping and accepts all major credit cards.
