Editor obsessions: Uber clothing delivery and ALDO’s latest campaign
Here's everything that got us talking this week.
ALDO launches new “Inspiration is Everywhere” campaign
For its spring 2016 campaign, ALDO juxtaposed still life images shot by Bela Borsodi with portraits of select influencers by Matteo Montanari. Together the shots tell the story of how inspiration can go from the abstract to the tangible and depicts ALDO’s take on the spring trends. Influencers include model/It-girl Kelsey Soles, actress Laura Harrier (pictured above) and jewellery designer Susannah Liguori.
Uber is testing out a fashion delivery service
Is fast fashion about to get even faster? Uber, the disruptive tech startup that provides a ride at the tap of a smartphone, already launched a meal delivery service called Uber Eats. Now, the company wants to be the one to deliver your online purchases too. The program is already underway in Chicago, New York and San Francisco, and Uber just announced partnerships with retailers Nordstrom and Rent the Runway. Although there’s been no word on a Canadian rollout, we can only imagine how the imitative will change the retail game.
