Ever since the first Ostwald Helgason x ALDO Rise collaboration debuted in February at MADE Fashion Week, we have been anxiously awaiting the second installment from the two brands. Well, get ready, because the sophomore collection will be available online and in stores beginning September 4—just in time to help assuage those end-of-summer woes.
The collection of footwear and handbags features a gorgeous mishmash of textures and colors—think tweed, felt, oxblood and navy—that are all pretty perfect for fall. The best part? The footwear retails from $150 to $180, with bags ranging between $55 to $85. Finally, a straight-off-the-runway collection we can actually afford to shop!
"We wanted to achieve a look that was polished and playful, and most importantly: wearable," said Susanne Ostwald, Ostwald Helgason’s creative director. "Apart from aesthetics, we thought about practicality, so the shoes and bags had to feel as effortless gliding down the runway as dashing about on cobblestones.”
The brand has also created a behind-the-scenes video from its fall show, full of playful shots of models getting ready—and, more importantly, close-ups of the shoes and bags in all their runway-ready glory.
