Earlier this week, Aimé Leon Dore previewed the one-of-one Porsche 911 “ALD 964” that served as the precursor to the coming capsule collection. The project took months to complete with visits to the Porsche Museum and 911 assembly line in Stuttgart, Germany. What resulted was a fully-functioning, restored 911 set to be on display for a limited time in New York City. Today, the capsule collection is unveiled in full with a release date.
The apparel offering takes curated inspiration from the Porsche archives with “ALD 964” embroidery throughout with an updated pegasus logo serving as the focal point. Shades of off-white, muted grey tones, forest green and red are complemented by select houndstooth wool accessories by Loro Piana harkening back to the automaker’s roots with a Schott leather car bag and toolkit. Premium leather driving gloves will also be available in a range of four colors while a limited run of pins highlight the iconic Porsche model. The collection thus mirrors the aesthetics and ethos of the partnered car, from the fabric on the Recaro seats to the pigment of the exterior’s paint.
The collaborative capsule launches February 6 at 11 a.m. EST on Aimé Leon Dore’s website and at the Jeffrey Deitch Gallery at the address below.
Elsewhere in Porsche news, artist Benedict Radcliffe created a wire sculpture for the Carrera 934 — the predecessor to the 964.
