Of all the new designer labels we debuted in our new luxury annex, Aimè Leon Dore was by far the favorite of both customers and staff. The Queens-based lifestyle, sport and ready-to-wear brand founded by Teddy Santis casts a nostalgic eye to the New York culture of his youth, with a mix of urban style and tailored essentials that draw inspiration from Ralph Lauren, '90s hip hop, pickup basketball and the origin of streetwear.
The simple, bold and timeless pieces that they create; clean logo tees, crews and hoodies that sit alongside tailored knits, sweaters and outerwear, are simultaneously contemporary and familiar and extremely wearable. It is no surprise that we completely sold out of their Fall/Winter '17 collection. Fear not though, the Spring '18 line is currently on the way and will be available online as well as in-store. Keep it locked to our twitter feed for info on the next drop and get read for more from Aimè Leon Dore.
