New Selfridges pop-up store - New Shoes ALDO Rise
Preen, JW Anderson, Mark Fast and Christian Cota are amongst the designers, who will be showcasing their capsule shoe collections for Aldo at the beginning of next week.
"We have just been in Montreal working with their design team on the initial designs," Thornton told us. "It's still in development, but the initial designs are looking very modern and sexy. Aldo really wants this range to be a fantastic high quality, directional product, so they will appeal to the Preen customer."
So will the range make its Preen catwalk debut ahead of its arrival in stores for spring/summer 2012?
"Yes for sure, from the runway to the sidewalk!" Thornton added. "We will be using some of the designs on the runway for our New York show in September."
