Just add this to the list! Aldo’s latest designer collaboration has given us yet another reason to be excited for New York Fashion Week, which kicks off in a week (it runs from Feb. 12 to 19). The accessories brand is joining forces with celebrated designer Misha Nonoo (whose designs have found fans in high-profile stars, like Gwyneth Paltrow, Emma Watson, and Sarah Jessica Parker) for the second time. Following the success of last season's partnership, it's no wonder the two have decided to team up again for fall/winter 2015.
"The inspiration behind the fall 2015 collection is the complexity of the woman. I am honored to work with the Aldo team on a line of collectibles that inspire women to look and feel composed, whilst maintaining a sense of conviction and ease,” Nonoo says. "It is a dream come true to be granted the platform to present my work within the Aldo community."
Judging from the sketches, Nonoo has clearly nailed it. She encapsulated her inspiration and funneled it into a playful (yet elevated) fluff ball of an evening purse and sleek ladylike pointy-toe pumps with Mary Jane-esque straps. "Misha's innate understanding of her customer, as well as our own, translated beautifully into artful yet functional pieces," says Aldo's Chief Creative Officer Douglas Bensadoun. Agreed!
