Spring/Summer 2015 is hot with designer and affordable collaborations! ALDO shoes are releasing a Spring/Summer 2015 collection with the help of New York based designer Misha Nonoo. Born in Bahrain and raised in London, the 27 year old launched her namesake label in 2011 and has gained a wonderful celebrity following including Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Emma Watson and Pippa Middleton to name a few. The brand is recognized for its commitment to high quality craftsmanship and inspires women to look and feel composed, while maintaining a sense of softness and ease.

The MISHA NONOO x ALDO RISE collection of footwear and handbags were presented as part of the MISHA NONOO runway show during New York Fashion Week.

“Contrary to popular perception, the most daring fashion can sometimes be rather quiet – not showy or ‘out there’ but decidedly confident and on point, says Douglas Bensadoun, Chief Creative Officer for ALDO, of Miss Nonoo’s collection.

“It’s been a privilege to collaborate with Misha at such a pivotal point in her career and witness her label’s admirable essence infused into a beautifully crafted collection of shoes and handbags that can go from desk to dinner, where a change of shoes and bag play a crucial part in that transformation.”

 The designer was inspired by the romantic tension illustrated in Dustin Yellin’s three dimensional psycho-geography glass collage series. “For this stiletto silhouette, we used multiple fine straps that overlap and wrap around the foot to showcase a controlled chaos. This design speaks to my signature; creating a juxtaposition between my heritage and contemporary art and culture,” explains Miss Nonoo.

“The most thrilling aspect was considering a look as a whole and being able to design from head to toe. To witness our design details transform into curated collectibles has been a rewarding experience. It has been wonderful to work with ALDO, a brand that shares our belief that accessories should be works of art.”

ALDO RISE, is an amazing endeavor which supports, promotes and celebrates daring talent in the fashion community. ALDO RISE ensures fashion designers have the ability to create and showcase the footwear and handbags they envision for their collections.
