New York based designer Patrik Ervell has been added to the ALDO Rise roster for fall/winter 2012-13. He joins Preen on the fashion week collaboration programme, which supports, promotes and celebrates daring talent in the fashion community.
Noted for his unconventional use of innovative and unusual materials such as vintage parachutes, horsehair, and gold foil, Ervell translates his unique vision by combining various materials such as classic leather with utilitarian rubber soles and technical fabrics like nylon to create functional yet covetable footwear.
For fall/winter 2012, the designer has also collaborated with ALDO Rise and director M Blash to create a video reminiscent of sci-fi classics like Chris Marker’s ‘La Jetée’ and Ridley Scott’s ‘Bladerunner’.
All footwear featured in the video are from the PATRIK ERVELL x ALDO RISE F/W 12 collection available in select ALDO stores worldwide this September 25.
