Now that Aldo’s established their high fashion cred with their new Rise collaborations—J.W. Anderson and Mark Fast signed up for the first round—they’re taking on the ultimate celebrity partner: Madonna. The next leg of her fashion tour, a collection of shoes, is called Truth or Dare by Madonna. A release says the shoes, produced by Aldo, “target Madonna’s core demographic, women aged 27-50 who have a timeless style and an innate sex appeal.” It also notes the involvement of Arianne Phillips, the Oscar nominated costume designer who’s collaborated with the pop icon for years.
The collection includes flats, heels and “iconic styles that Madonna is so famously known for, such as the over-the-knee boot.” (Of course, that over-the-knee boot she wears so often is actually Stella McCartney’s vegan silhouette.) When the shoes hit in August, they’ll cost $89 to $349. Aldo’s president said, “Combining our global footwear and retail expertise with the vision of a fashion icon like Madonna plays right into our strengths.”
