Inspired by Pieter Hugo's photography book The Hyena & Other Men, these funky print wedges are a mishmash of textiles designed by Julian Louie for Aldo Spring 2011. According to the designer, "The photographs [are] of a group of men in Nigeria who were street entertainers, and they trained hyenas. They had these crazy outfits that were half American sportswear that they found and half really traditional tribal pieces with a lot of interesting textiles and tassels. So the whole collection was about the mix of those two ideas."
Of course we spotted some fashionistas bold enough to pull of this statement wedge.
