Aléo Studio is a New York City-based line of luxury essentials. Inspired by the refined sensibility of minimalist design and the agile essence of sportswear, our genderless pieces are designed with the modern multifaceted lifestyle in mind. 

With a focus on expert craftsmanship and premium natural fabrics, Aléo Studio stands for style, quality, and longevity. Supple shapes and thoughtful construction allow our garments to effortlessly transition from workdays to weekends, providing the foundation for a contemporary uniform that transcends trends. Each piece in the unisex collection embodies our core values of simplicity, functionality, and responsible production.
Aléo Studio stands by the principles of its Founder and Creative Director, Tiye Traoré. Built on the desire for clothing that balances form and function, the brand springs from her experience as a former corporate lawyer and national basketball player—two seemingly disparate careers that share the need for versatile garments that move with ease. Her motivation in founding Aléo Studio: to create luxury, seasonless staples for the modern individual’s multifaceted lifestyle.
The name Aléo is an ode to Tiye’s West African parents, who imbued her with an appreciation for West Africa’s cultural traditions of expert tailoring and the use of high-caliber natural fabrics. Learning to sew from her father at a young age instilled Tiye with a reverence for construction and pattern making that resonates throughout her collections. The brand’s inclusive ethos stems from Tiye’s upbringing and the notion that gender need not apply to quality garments.
