Following the recent sneaker reveal, Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance have provided a closer look at their much-anticipated collaborative release. Encompassing an array of pastel sportswear and two colorful runners, the collection is tailor-made for the forthcoming warm weather.
Lush colors inform the collaborative collection, keeping in line with Aimé Leon Dore’s seasonal in-house collection. Like the brand’s own line, the New Balance capsule is informed by vintage sportswear, with bold color-blocking, throwback logos and retro cuts. Shirts and sweaters also feature New Balance’s old slogan: “The Intelligent Choice.”
Both collaborative 997 shoes both feature bright tones of yellow, green, blue, purple or pink, adding heritage-indebted flair to the muted grey uppers, with premium pebbled leather and suede accenting the multi-hued panels. Like the sneakers, the clothing capsule embodies the bright shades of bygone era sportswear. Matching sets of long-sleeved tees and running shorts mesh with floral prints and fleece cardigans, all offered in tonal make-ups. The understated hues are elevated by impactful contrasted branding, which ranges from the aforementioned slogan to “Aimé Leon Dore” emblazoned in the New Balance typeface.
Expect the New Balance 997 and collaborative capsule to drop via Aimé Leon Dore’s web store and New York storefront on April 12 at 11 AM EST. Get up close with the two 997 models below.
