Based in Florence, Italy, CASASOLA is a new-generation luxury women’s ready-to-wear brand by Brazilian-Italian designer Barbara Casasola.
CASASOLA brings together modern suiting and easy, sporty, knitwear that transitions from day to night.
Drawn by a desire to simplify and concentrate on quality and fit, each new season aims to replenish the wardrobe - not replace it - and provide a clear and considered collection that quietly moves fashion forward. Every piece is crafted in Italy with attention to detail and the highest quality materials and construction available.
CASASOLA is regularly worn by industry leaders and many of the most photographed women in the world including Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alicia Vikander and the Duchess of Cambridge.
The steady growth of the brand has led to international critical and commercial success. Barbara Casasola was "Guest Women's Wear Designer" (2014) at Italy's Pitti Uomo in Florence and awarded "Breakthrough Designer of the Year" (2015) at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards.
The brand is sold worldwide, but selectively, at department stores such as Net-a-Porter (Online), Selfridges (London) and Tsum (Moscow); luxury boutiques such as The Webster (Miami, Bal Harbour), Just One Eye (Los Angeles), The Line (New York, Los Angeles), Joseph (London, New York) and Antonia (Milan).
We believe that modern luxury is underpinned by ethical and sustainable practices. To this end, we make all our product in Italy with local and sustainable materials.
We select our raw materials, fabrics, yarns and makers capable of meeting the highest standards of both craftsmanship and sustainability. We only use Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified viscose from sustainably-managed forests in Europe. Where we use synthetic materials we are increasing the quantity of recycled fibers that are certified according to the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) and comply with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) protocol. Our wool is mulesing-free and our cotton is certified organic.
We are committed to a supply chain that treats everyone with dignity, respect and fair wages. We have a fully traceable supply chain and work only with the most reputable luxury manufacturers in the world, which are also subject to annual third-party audits.
Our Supplier Code of Conduct requires our suppliers to exhibit exemplary labor standards, social responsibility, environmental measures and business integrity. For a copy, please email our Customer Service.
