Stylish Shoes From ALDO RISE x Preen's Latest Collaboration
Few can dream about purchasing a pair of shoes straight off the runway, but thanks to their latest collaboration with ALDO RISE, you can snag Preen’s gorgeous heels—at accessible prices—from their S/S 13 collection. For their second season with ALDO RISE, Preen’s London-based design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi mined inspiration from Buffalo ’66. “The darkly absurd, cult American film orchestrates Preen’s perpetual play on the masculine and feminine: the seductive innocence of Christina Ricci versus the overt masculinity of Vincent Gallo,” Bregazzi says. Indeed, the shoes offer a fashion-forward contrast—edgy hardware and sleek silhouettes with luxe textures and pops of colour—that’s ideal for all your spring ensembles. Read on for a few of our favourites from the collection and styling tips from the designers themselves.
1. Musilova Heels ($155) in Ice
These pointy-toe pumps in versatile white are just as suitable for the office (with a printed pencil skirt and blazer) as they are for your next GNO (with cropped skinnies and a silky tank).
2. Buito Sandals ($155)
A touch of snakeskin gives these ankle-strap heels a little extra pizzazz. “The open-toe is super cool with a loose tailored suit, or even a silk t-shirt and pants,” Thornton says.
3. Pravda Pumps ($155) in Navy
These square-heeled pumps are definite scene-stealers. “The closed-toe style is great with a slit skirt and blouse,” Thornton suggests.
