Preen x Aldo Rise

The wait is over! In stores now, ALDO RISE is proud to launch its third collaboration with London-based design duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi of Preen by Thornton Bregazzi.

Buffalo 66, the darkly absurd cult American film, characterized Preen's perpetual play on the masculine and feminine identity for Spring/Summer 2013. The PREEN x ALDO RISE collection contrasts classic shapes with striking patchwork combinations. Stand-out styles include a pump with mixed exotic influences and asymmetric vamp; an ankle-strap stiletto with a flash of neon and touch of snake. Detailed with a silver square metal lock closure, the collection is an exquisite distillation of Preen's masterful balance.

PREEN x ALDO RISE is now available in select ALDO stores worldwide. Through ALDO RISE, ALDO supports, promotes and celebrates daring talent in the fashion community.
