PREEN: For their second season with ALDO RISE, London-based design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi present a collection of contemporary elegance with their romantic yet whimsical designs. Reminiscent of an English Garden, the footwear collection features striking butterfly and botanical prints in lush suede and rich leather. The 1.75 inch platform and 6.25 inch conical heel create a modern aesthetic that transcends the classic Victorian style.
PATRIK ERVELL: ALDO RISE is thrilled to welcome New York based designer, Patrik Ervell, to its roster of world-class designers. Following the success of his award-winning menswear collections, Ervell launched his first womenswear collection for F/W 12, inspired by police and military uniforms. Noted for his unconventional use of innovative and unusual materials such as vintage parachutes, horsehair, and gold foil, Ervell translates his unique vision by combining various materials such as classic leather with utilitarian rubber soles and technical fabrics like nylon to create functional yet covetable footwear for women. The collection is offered in this season’s key colors including navy and plum.
