On the heels of last week’s teaser video, Aimé Leon Dore has unveiled the lookbook for its upcoming NY NAVY capsule collection. The 22-piece range features a number of military-tinged essentials, including hoodies, bomber jackets, cargo pants, crewnecks, sweat shorts and knit beanies, finished in a color palette limited to olive green, navy blue, cream and heather grey. The creative inspiration for ALD founder and designer Teddy Santis hinged upon the parallels between his hometown of New York City and the United States Navy, resulting in an emphasis on quality, comfort and functionality. Materials used throughout the collection include Canadian milled french terry and waffle, as well as Japanese nylon, canvas, cotton twill and satin. The NY NAVY collection will be available starting tomorrow, April 9, through April 13 at the Aimé Leon Dore concept shop at 179 Mott Street in NYC. An online launch is set to follow on April 13th.
Release Date: April 13, 2015 (Monday)
