Spanish designer Mercedes Castillo founded her namesake label in 2017. The brand is based in New York, and creates luxury footwear for women. Having worked at DKNY and Tory Burch as part of their respective footwear teams, Mercedes Castillo wished to create her own label which combines her love for both art and fashion.
Mercedes Castillo is inspired by art and architecture, especially that of mid-century style, and this influence is clear throughout her designs. Modern and minimalist, the brand adds interest through their unexpected shapes and silhouettes. Architectural heels and sculptural silhouettes are signature to Mercedes Castillo, featuring irregular and linear shapes. Muted tones are met with a confident use of colour, providing something for any occasion and often combined with creative, geometric details. While undeniably contemporary, there is a distinct vintage edge amongst designs which adds a timeless elegance to each piece. From sandals and flats to heels and boots, Mercedes Castillo is unique and intriguing. Strappy, knot-detail sandals and metallic heels are met with diagonal-heeled boots and woven fabrics. Made from fine leathers and suedes, Mercedes Castillo designs are built to last, both in terms of style and quality.
Collections from Mercedes Castillo can be found in various department stores across the world, as well as online through Bergdorf Goodman.
