Aimé Leon Dore and Woolrich have released a Fall/Winter collection together every year since 2018. For their fifth collaboration, the two switch things up to present their first Spring/Summer collection.
The collection draws inspiration from the great outdoors, more specifically fly fishing, as well as both brand’s dedication to history and heritage. Founded in 1830 in Pennsylvania, Woolrich has a deep history with fishing, as many of its employees have taken up the hobby due to the abundance of lakes and streams near Woolrich, PA. Digging through the Woolrich archives, the Aimé Leon Dore team took interest in the vintage ’80s catalogs focusing on fly fishing, a representation of Americana culture and outdoors lifestyle.
ALD x Woolrich SS22 showcases Woolrich’s commitment to designing garments to embrace and protect from the elements, bringing archival styles to life through Aimé Leon Dore’s modern aesthetics. Wading jackets, utility vests, shirts, sweaters, custom-print fleeces, convertible bottoms, and a range of accessories are featured in the collection.
The Aimé Leon Dore x Woolrich collection will be available on May 6th at 11am ET via aimeleondore.com, woolrich.com, the Aimé Leon Dore flagship, and select Woolrich stores. Check out the lookbook photos below.
