When we first signed the lease on Mott in December 2015, Aimé Leon Dore was in its infancy, still an idea more than a brand. We walked into a fucked up, barebones space on the edge of Nolita and challenged ourselves. Three years later - and still on the original month-to-month lease - we feel tremendous pride in what the space has become and what it has represented for ALD as a whole. Mott was never meant to be permanent; it has evolved together with the brand and helped bring many of its ideas and visions to life.
Next month, Aimé Leon Dore will be opening its first flagship at a new location, a space that will give more meaning to what ALD already represents. As a homage to Mott, we've released a limited graphic tee depicting the storefront as we will forever remember it. Thank you for three years of beautiful memories.
