The debut line from the New York brand Aimé Leon Dore launched online recently and I’m loving everything about this street-meets-high fashion line. What is thoroughly impressive is the attention to detail in everything from the stitching and hardware that adorn the clothing. Visit their online store here.
Daniel Oliver and Damien Horan, two friends, and band members of underground Avante-garde group, The Villainares, decided to develop a line of clothing which breaks down the boundaries between art, music and fashion. Their vision was simple, easy to wear fashion with a unique, ‘do it yourself’ approach.
Combining a wealth of experience, creativity and business sense, the pair set out to create a lifestyle label which closes the gap between ‘the street’ and ‘high fashion’.
