Aimé Leon Dore
Established in 2014 by Teddy Santis, Aimé Leon Dore is a lifestyle, sport, and ready-to-wear brand based in New York City. Described as “like the Big Apple’s answer to A.P.C.”, the label has a strong focus on simple yet powerful design.
Heavily inspired by Santis’ nostalgic memories of growing up in Queens, Aimé Leon Dore’s signature urban and tailored essentials draw influence from graffiti kids to basketball stars. Trench coats and bombers layered with streetwear staples like hoodies and T-shirts result in an unexpectedly elevated aesthetic, whilst handcrafted leather high tops and hybrid Chelsea sneakers stay true to the imprint’s NYC roots, bridging the gap between luxury and streetready style.
In 2017, Aimé Leon Dore collaborated with Ronnie Fieg’s KITH on a nautical themed selection of hoodies, T-shirts, pullover sailing jackets, pants, and caps. They have also collaborated with German sportswear giant PUMA in the past on the brand’s classic State sneaker.
