ALDO RISE collaborating designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi of PREEN, say their FW13 collection is inspired by Jubilee. They don’t mean the cherries . They’re alluding to the acerbically titled 1978 film by Derek Jarman, in which Queen Elizabeth I is transported to a punky post linapocalyptic London where the girls wear pearls with their guns. On the runway, that translated into zip an chain details, pixilated leopard prints, biker aesthetic references, and a minimalist palette of red, white and black.
Working directly with PREEN , ALDO has delivered with three key styles that promise to up the system. Offered in celestial blue, fiery red, or biker black, these three feminine silhouettes all boast a chic island platform, stiletto heel, and an awesomely pointed toe. The kicker? The collage of textures in pony hair, leather and suede. Tough and sexy in equal measure.
