After fruitful collaborations with New Balance, Woolrich or even Porsche, Aimé Leon Dore plunges headlong into vintage. The team around founder Teddy Santis announced that the brand will start offering consumers a range of selected pieces and objects that have been used as benchmarks for the brand in recent years.
Baptized Léon Dore, the first curation will be released online this Friday. Information on what will be included in the drop is still scarce, but the lookbook shared by Aimé Leon Dore gives us a glimpse of vintage sportswear, old logos, faded cargo ships and more.
The campaign is shot in true Aimé Leon Dore style, combining a relaxed aesthetic with more formal pieces by mixing and matching loafers and blazers with sporty sneakers and jerseys – something that has become a signature for the brand. .
Founded in 2014, Aimé Leon Dore has gained a cult following among fashion and streetwear enthusiasts around the world, thanks to the brand’s ability to create a style ecosystem that goes beyond sneakers and basic clothing. When you see Aimé Léon Dore in nature, you immediately know what it is.
That, and Santis’ ability to create sought-after sneaker collaborations regardless of the figure he’s working on, has earned him the role of New Balance’s Made in USA Creative Director. The first collection directed by Santis is expected to be released in 2022.
True vintage junkies won’t want to miss this drop. Léon Dore’s first curation will be released on Friday July 16 online at 11 a.m. EST. Stay tuned for more information on which coins are going to drop, as well as expected prices.
