The highly anticipated return of New York's hottest young export
Emerging in 2014, Aimé Leon Dore has quickly established a firm footing on the global streetwear scene by remaining true to one core philosophy; 'to create timeless work by portraying an aesthetic that is uniquely our own.'
Influenced by the collision of cultures that is unique to Queens, NY, Aimé Leon Dore draws upon a vast array of classic streetwear references close to the heart of the brand's founder, Teddy Santis.
Masterfully synthesising Big Apple nostalgia to create elevated urban essentials, ALD's exploration of sophisticated streetwear reaches a level of luxury not commonly seen from independent design outfits.
For SS18, Aimé Leon Dore places a new focus on the development of their classic logo range with a sophisticated palette of dusty-toned tracksuits emerging as this season's ultimate grail. Taking a global approach to fabric procurement - sourcing cloth from Italy, England, Japan, Canada and the U.S. - Aimé Leon Dore invests time in equipping its design team with the perfect raw ingredients to craft some of the freshest streetwear pieces seen each season.
In a saturated streetwear market, ALD's strength lies in an ability to design urban clothing with a finesse and sophistication that translates fluently from the inner-city projects to the upper-east side; a well-considered style interpretation of the contemporary streetwear buff's multi-faceted lifestyle.
