FOCUS ON Aldo Castagna: the enlightened shoemaker who believes in new generations

During the last edition of WHITE we met Maria Pontillo, Sales Director of Aldo Castagna, a Neapolitan brand with 59 years of footwear background, where traditional craftsmanship and up to date style are perfectly balanced.

Aldo Castagna is still leading the project – over almost 60 years, the "evolved" craftsman has been able to keep the focus on a product that season after season, proves to be a vivid expression of femininity and versatility for women of all ages and strong personalities.

The strong point of a winning brand is always that one - says Maria Pontillo - quality, without it we can't even mention style, something that we are happy with. We are satisfied with the results achieved, especially with the “cage”, for some the "spider". It has become a brand reference model, increasingly successful, also thanks to the variaty of leathers and colors proposed every year, a way to renew the offer even towards those loyal customers willing to add new models to their collection.

Aldo Castagna's research goes deeper and deeper and continues to improve from one collection to another thanks to an increase in innovative processing methods creating super-comfortable leathers for sandals, ankle boots and boots, with an attractive allure suitable for day and night. An example with a strong visual impact "the new laminates such as crack in the gold, bronze and light blue versions, are the expression of a woman who wants to be well dressed again by wearing sophisticated accessories enhancing her body as a mirror of a new creative and economic momentum in which we firmly believe" says Maria Pontillo "or the essential suede boots but with an innovative cut that folds on itself, able to keep a flawless shape".

A trend study carried out by a team of young creatives with a burning passion for this job, a fire that the company feeds by giving them space and trust in collection's development which allows a stylistic innovation without ever neglecting the detail that for many may appear insignificant, "especially thanks to the experience gained in almost sixty years rooted in the footwear industry" recalls with respect and gratitude Maria Pontillo.
