Philip Lim Pre-fall 2012 anyone?
It’s all about new and exciting talent (mega bucks not required) and that’s why Aldo Rise deserves a standing ovation.
On the eve of Versace for H&M’s Spring/Summer Collection release, Aldo Rise is the high street and designer collaboration that everyone’s talking about. Why? US brand Aldo has created an affordable but impressive collection by putting heads together with the hottest names of fashion future-land: J.W.Anderson, Mark Fast and Preen masterminds, Justin Thornton and Thea Bragazzi (learn all these names!).
Prices range between £125-£135, and the designs will be available at Selfridges only for the next month and at ASOS from February 22.
P.S. Take a look at Preen’s SS12 Ready-to-wear collection here. Classic looks we’ll be seeing filtering down through to the high street this season (our earlier post on Primark is a good example!)
So, I was on a recent shopping trip with our lovely Beauty Editor Amy, when she randomly (as she does), she turns to me and says ‘You know what I want, I really want a black and white blazer. You know… with the trimming?’ At first, I honestly had no idea what she meant. And yet in every shop I couldn’t help but search for this ambiguous, but undoubtedly fabulous, jacket. Which, gave me an idea for a blog feature.
