First Look at Aldo Rise X Patrik Ervell Collaboration Video

Did you know that Aldo shoes had a high(er) end designer collaboration series called ALDO RISE?!   Neither did I!  Well, apparently, ALDO Rise has already done project with JW Anderson, Faster by Mark Fast, Preen, and even Libertine (how I missed it....one would never know!).  For Fall/Winter 2012, Aldo teams up with Patrik Ervell for capsule that I'm dying to see in person.  

From the release:

"ALDO RISE is excited to welcome New York-based award winning designer, Patrik Ervell, to its roster of world-class designers. Noted for his unconventional use of innovation and unusual materials such as vulcanized rubber, vintage parachutes, horsehair, and gold foil, Ervell translates his unique vision through signature combinations and innovation.

For Fall/Winter 2012 Patrik Ervell collaborated with ALDO RISE and direction M Blash to create a video reminiscent of sci-fi classics like Chris Marker's "La Jetee" and Ridley Scott's "Bladerunner."

"The Fall/Winter 12 collection had to do with uniforms that had a kind of police academy feeling," says Ervell.  "I think the video has a suggestion of that kind of a setting.  An academy of sorts but in an alternative world or possibly a future world.  ALso, watching people fly around in my clothes was pretty amazing."

Here's a sneak peak teaser video and all footwear featured in the will be available in selected ALDO stores worldwide and on-line:


Louis Vuitton Spring / Summer 2013 Pre-Collection Lookbook

Joe Meadcock and Max Rendell star in Louis Vuitton's Spring / Summer 2013 Pre-collection lookbook.  Ever since Kim Jones took over for the reigns for mens at LV, I've been drawn to it like a moth to a flame.  For spring/summer 13, Jones was inspired by sports, specifically the 30th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton Cup.

Obscur Spring / Summer 2013 Menswear Lookbook

Another great lookbook and collection from Swedish menswear line Obscur for Spring / Summer 2013.  Designer Richard Soderberg takes inspiration from the beauty of the scandinavian landscape and his love of the dark.  A bit Rick Owens, a bit Damir Doma, but 100% Obscur - I love it.
