Aime Leon Dore
Queens, New York born designer Teddy Santis revealed the first collection from his brand Aimé Leon Dore in 2014. The clothing was comfortable with minimal branding; simple yet considered. Years later, this philosophy of creating comfortable, tailored clothing has proven to be successful. Aimé Leon Dore is among New York’s hottest brands and has found its way on the backs of celebrities—including LeBron James. While Aimé Leon Dore’s mainline collections have done very well season after season, the brand’s collaborations have been even more successful. The New York Yankee and Los Angeles Dodgers hats in particular sell out immediately and Aimé Leon Dore’s ongoing collaboration with New Balance seems to garner more attention and praise each time a capsule is released. Aimé Leon Dore is the brand to keep an eye on for those looking to bridge the gap between streetwear and traditional menswear in their closets.
