Castaner Espadrille Capsule Collection on Gilt

When it comes to spring and summer, there isn't any better shoe than the espadrille. Often imitated (never duplicated), the original shoe is made by Castaner, a family that started making the shoes and selling them at a market in Spain. The versatile shoe caught the eye of Yves Saint Laurent (who makes killer shoes), and the rest is history.

Now Castaner has teamed up with Gilt for an exclusive capsule collection, available Wednesday, March 6 at 9:00 pm EST.

Most often seen in its wedge form with the ballet ties, this versatile wedge has been worn by everyone from Penelope Cruz to Grace Kelly, and the flat versions have even been worn by men, including Salvador Dahli.

Recently Pictured in Vogue
Gilt caught up with Isabela Castaner and talked to her about the capsule collection, the original Castaner espadrilles, how it has become a family business, what to wear espadrilles with and her favorite vacation spot.

The capsule collection, designed for Gilt, is a great way to get the ultimate spring/summer shoe that will never go out of style. Available in every style from flats to wedges to heels, you can get in on the perfect summer shoe no matter what your personal style.

Plus it gives you a shoe to look forward to and something to wear when all the snow finally melts.
