Back in July, FLARE‘s fashion director Liz Cabral announced that she had teamed up with ALDO Shoes a second time for a Fall 2012 limited edition offering. Naturally, I did a celebratory dance in my beloved snakeskin wedges from the first collaboration. I’ve been waiting patiently for more information ever since, and we’ve finally got some via FLARE’s October 2012 issue.
Get ready to shop not one, but two pairs of shoes designed by Cabral and the ALDO team…and handbags too! All with price tags under $200, the mini collection features a lace stiletto bootie ($175) and an oxblood shootie ($155). Trying to pick just one will be futile: one of each, please!
No word yet on when the second FLARE x ALDO collection will be available, but when it finally launches it’ll be sure to sell out fast. In the meantime, stay tuned for more details!
The complete FLARE x ALDO Fall 2012 collection has now officially been revealed! In addition to the highly covetable lace stiletto bootie and oxblood shootie we gave you a sneak peek of earlier this week, the collection also features a faux croc bag that comes in two bold colours, blue and red, and will retail for a very reasonable $70.
“I’m confident the oxblood shoe will turn up on the street-style blogs, while the black lace pair should prove a hit on the holiday party circuit”, says Cabral, with which I wholeheartedly agree. “As for the bag? At first, Aldo was planning on producing only one colour. But after lots of debate on the merits of red versus blue, they decide on both!”
Having a tough time deciding yourself? Don’t fret – the affordable price tags mean you can buy the entire collection for under $500 before taxes and you have until October to save up. The official launch date is yet to be confirmed though, so watch this space!
As of October 5, the collection is now finally (woohoo!) available in limited quantities at the following locations:
Montreal – Eaton Centre
Toronto – 50 Bloor Street West
Toronto – Yorkdale Shopping Centre
Vancouver – 1025 Robson Street
Calgary – Chinook Centre
In other words, GO, GO, GO!!!
