After teasing bits and pieces over the last few weeks, Teddy Santis‘ Aimé Leon Dore officially premieres its Fall/Winter 2019 New Balance campaign, dubbed “Life In The Balance.” Consisting of two collaborative footwear silhouettes — a New Balance 990v2 and New Balance 990v5 — plus co-branded apparel, the collection combines ALD’s signature elegant sportswear styling with New Balance’s storied heritage.
Drawing upon the colors, sights and sounds of a trip from New York City to the lush forests of upstate New York State, the “Life In The Balance” range provides several co-branded fall staples to complement the comfortable footwear. Key pieces range from cozy fleece pullovers and matching pants to sturdy knit caps and even versatile scarves with special zip pockets, with a classic grey sweatsuit reinforcing the timeless motif. Of special note is a two-tone navy/black fleece zip-up jacket and a rugby-style fleece overshirt with a snap closure collar.
Of course, the collection’s center point is the two co-branded footwear silhouettes. Aimé Leon Dore’s latest take on the 990v5 utilizes rich green and stately navy blue hues to jazz up its plush nubuck and mesh upper, while the 990v2 opts for a slightly more colorful look, adding yellow and grey into the mix alongside neutral off-white tones that inform the sole unit of each sneaker. Small Aimé Leon Dore-branded tags appear beneath the ankle, a subtle reminder of the shoes’ collaborative nature.
