We get a private tour with Canadian footwear favourite, ALDO

With plans for further North American expansion, their new LOCALE boutiques, and a leather handbag line on the horizon, we thought it an ideal time to catch up with the team at ALDO for a behind-the-scenes look at the accessories mega-retailer.

Touring the headquarters in Montreal, we lived the dream of shoe fanatics everywhere, getting a firsthand glimpse at the full Fall collection, the new Terry Richardson campaign, and what’s in the works for Spring/Summer ’11 (our lips are sealed). Speaking with Design Director, Avi Tenzer, you definitely feel the energy of a brand on the rise. And there’s lots to look forward to – with growing recognition south of the border, and brand advocates among the Hollywood elite, the outlook is promising.

Take a peak of the tour here, and for your first look at the fall collection, check out your local ALDO retailer, or browse online at The Natural Milled Leather Handbag Collection launches this September.
