In the Mediterranean, we have a luxury and a custom. The luxury of enjoying long warm seasons, and the habit of taking advantage of them.
We live in the streets, we celebrate with the sun, and we let ourselves be swayed by the ocean winds. And this spirit has a tailor-made footwear: the Menorcan avarca.
“Whatever comes from the heart, carries the heat and color of its birthplace.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes
It’s thanks to the Menorcan countryside and their farmers that we have the Menorcan avarca. It is the seed of this lineage of shoemakers and the pillar on which Castell has grown, becoming a robust company with its own seal. A sturdy family tree from which every Springtime new shoots emerge and new collections are produced from the heart.
Each Castell Avarca is unique, cared for, spoiled and handcrafted.
Last Friday, April 20 the director of Castell Menorca (Pedro Castell) and Nito Vilafranca (designer of the firm and a reference in the design of abarcas) presented at the prestigious European Institute Di Desing in Madrid (IED) an exclusive project together to the department of graphic design and illustration.
On Saturday, April 14th, along with major brands such as Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Amaya, Bimbalina, Canada House, Desigual, Luc & Mama, Nanos, Pan con Chocolate, Tuc Tuc and Yporque, Castell Menorca was part of a great event: the Petit Style Walking 2018 catwalk in the beautiful Born Centre Cultural. An event in which the latest national and international trends in children’s fashion spring-summer were presented.
