After teaming up with Prabal Gurung on the shoes for his Spring 2013 collection, the folks at Casadei are back with the designer for Pre-Fall. While the spring shoe was a semi-serious mesh pointed-toe wedge ($900), the Pre-Fall styles are much more playful: a tube boot and an ankle strap pump that come in neon pink, green and black and white, and feature a “cowboy feel.” The colorful styles fit perfectly with the rest of Gurung’s collection, which was inspired Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, set in Miami.
And good news for fans of both brands: it doesn’t look like they’ll stop collaborating any time soon. Designer Cesare Casadei told ELLE:
I see this as a very long-term partnership. Every day our collaboration gets better. Prabal works with our existing structures, adding his flair and aesthetics. The vivid exchange of ideas is really gratifying.
