Just weeks after releasing its Spring 2016 collection, Aimé Leon Dore returns with a special project made in collaboration with Tyrsa, a prolific French artist who specializes in typography.
The two-piece range is comprised of the brand’s signature 28 oz 500 GSM French terry hoodies, which are adorned with a calligraphic Aimé logo created by Tyrsa. At first glance, it’s obvious the hoodie designs are a nod to the iconic Coca-Cola logo; you have the recognizable ribbon under “Aimé” as well as the classic red and white colorways.
Aimé Leon Dore says the style was intended to honor the storied American brands that have inspired its work throughout the years. And it couldn’t have picked a better collaborator than Tyrsa to help execute that vision. Really, the man has created work for some of the biggest brands around the globe, including Nike, McDonald’s, Carhartt, and Schott NYC.
You can check out the hoodie in the image below. The pieces will drop tomorrow exclusively at Aimé Leon Dore’s website and Colette Paris.
