Paying homage to his home borough, Teddy Santis channels Queens with the first drop from the latest Aimé Leon Dore collection.
Pride of place in the ideological outlook of Teddy Santis' Aimé Leon Dore is the brand's connection to place - specifically New York City, and more specifically, the Borough of Queens. Naming his latest collection after the fond colloquial nickname for his hometown, "The World's Borough" reflects the New York sensibility that Santis continues to proliferate and build upon with his brand.
The most culturally diverse county in the United States of America, Queens has been built on multi-cultural exchange. Capturing the essence of this sentiment, the brand deliver a wide range of garments and alternate styles, seamlessly blended into one overarching aesthetic of its own. Pairing heavyweight wool overcoats with cotton sweatpants, double breasted suit jackets with ball-caps, comfortable fleeces with oxford shirts and much more, Aimé Leon Dore crafts a confident and expressive sensibility that distils a microcosm of New York City into a tangible and identifiable entity.
The first drop from Aimé Leon Dore's AW20 collection, "The World's Borough", is available online now at END.
