- About Page on Aimé Leon Dore Website
ALD is a brand that has caught my attention by providing its costumers clothing that makes you feel put together while also being more "in the know" in the fashion world. We all already know the big name designer brands that monopolize our instagram feeds. ALD is a more subtle clothing brand that shows people you know a thing or two about getting dressed in the morning. On top of that you are also extremely comfortable doing it, ALD clothing should be worn and can be worn everyday.
While scrolling through their website, you get the beauty in how easy it is to actually live in these clothes. ALD is grounded in what I call the essentials. ALD has mastered "the essentials" by incorporating "simple yet powerful design" into high quality products.
I have "put together" three outfits that stood out to me on ALD store. Hopefully you will see the range of occasions that these clothes can adapt to. Finally, once you get over how much you just spent on a hoodie and some joggers, you will start to understand that the level of quality will pay for itself for years to come. It is worth it.
