One of the newest arrivals at the boutique comes from world renowned Japanese designer: Issey Miyake.
Issey Miyake started his self-titled brand in 1970. After graduating from Tama Art University in Tokyo, he worked internationally in New York and Paris.
Having done work and research abroad he returned to Japan and started Miyake Design Studio which initially specialized in high end women's designer fashion. Since then the brand has expanded to include: menswear, womenswear, bags ( the Bao Bao collection), watches, perfumes, and other specialty products.
Miyake also boasts quite the resume having had collaborations with other prolific Japanese contemporaries such as Takashi Murakami, and even a friendship with Steve Jobs, creator of Apple. Apparently the iconic turtlenecks Jobs used to wear everyday were made upon request by Miyake himself!
Miyake's Bao Bao bag collection, however, is designed to give the consumer a look into the intriguing world of Issey Miyake.
The bags feature an easily recognizable design that features triangle pieces so as to transform the bag from a 2-D object to a 3-D one when the bag is in use.
The idea of the design is to add a sort of "size playfulness" as the brand puts it. There is a certain sense of surprise and humor in each design that also features colors that were chosen to reflect the changing seasons.
The bags are made to be easily stored when not in use and are able to fold down to 1/4 of their original size. Bao Bao bags make for a great "subtle flex" or even a statement piece (should you choose one of the brighter colors) and are a functional accessory for almost any outfit.

This week's we'll be focussing on the highly technical Japanese sportswear brand: Descente. After initially being started by Ishimoto Shoten in 1935, they were able to capitalize on the growing popularity of baseball in Japan and found great success producing cream colored baseball uniforms and pants. Around 1954 Japan's first professional skier, Kazuyoshi Nishimura, was brought on as an advisor to the company. The brand actually gave Nishimura quite a bit of creative freedom and started to go through the process of trial and error to figure out which of his ideas were viable. Eventually Descente found that focussing on skiwear would be their best bet for maximizing market share as they already had Japan's most prolific skier (at the time) as a brand advisor and ambassador. Nishimura was a stickler for perfection when it came to his ski wear and as such has shaped the brand's history and reputation for manufacturing products that incorporate extreme attention to detail as well as a design that works in tandem with the human body to ensure the best performance possible.
Descente has a multi-step design/manufacturing process that includes: a 3D simulation process known as "Motion 3D", sewing technicians that have national skill qualifications, and self imposed design criteria that meet even the highest standards of the global sportswear marketplace."Motion 3D" is a process that simulates each garment as though it were made of paper as opposed to a soft fabric. This allows the designer to get an exact feel for even the smallest of details. Another result of this design process is that the jacket is then significantly more comfortable when worn actively. In addition all of Descente's sewing technicians have certifications that prove they were able to not only pass difficult practical skill examinations, but have also demonstrated a strong theoretical appreciation of technical sewing. As such all of Descente's technicians do very intricate and time consuming sewing to ensure the highest quality product possible.
A key element of Descente's global product strategy is to produce products that meet the needs of potential customers everywhere. Descente is a brand for perfectionists that want the highest quality performance garments on the market. They hold themselves to the highest design and quality standards possible and even go so far as to share a list of "Things not to do" throughout the whole company. Descente also does rigorous internal evaluations so as to be sure that all testing procedures and standards are constantly maintained. So if you're looking for the best quality winter sportswear at a competitive price, feel free to stop into Castello Boutique as we have a great selection of Descente products to choose from!
Today I'll be highlighting another brand that is a current favorite around the boutique: Golden Goose
Golden Goose was first started in the year 2000. It was created by Alessandro Gallo and Francesca Rinaldo, in Venice, Italy. Upon inception the creators of the brand wanted to make sneakers that are a reflection of their lives: inspired by the ideas that nothing in life is perfect, and there are many inspirations to be found throughout the journey of live.
They travelled around collecting memories and ideas that they would later shape into their own unique shoes by pairing these designs with a touch of handmade Italian craftsmanship as a sort of homage or remembrance of their heritage. As Golden Goose is built on the idea of a sort of perfect imperfection, this is reflected in the design of the sneakers as each is uniquely distressed.
Moreover the distressing of the sneakers actually serves more than just an aesthetic purpose. The shoes are supposed to feel "broken in" as soon as you put them on for added comfort straight out of the box. This is also supposed to breathe more life into shoes and the brand itself as they pride themselves on being a "living work of art with the scratches to prove it." If you're looking for a pair of well-made shoes that comes with a unique sense of style and functionality, then Golden Goose is the brand for you!

While they are available online, feel free to come into our physical store in Red Bank, NJ, to purchase select styles from this brand as well as: Timberland, Saucony, Buttero, and many more!
