The supple shapes and quality natural fabrics provide for the longevity of the garments both in style and construction.

Aléo Studio stands by the principles of its Founder and Creative Director, Tiye Traore. Functionality and comfort are key tenets of the brand, which have a personal connection to Tiye’s background as a practicing corporate lawyer and former national basketball player. The motivation is to curate collections of luxury seasonless staples for the modern urbanite’s multifaceted lifestyle.
The name Aléo is an ode to Tiye’s west African parents, who passed down their cultural traditions of expert tailoring and use of quality natural fibers. Learning to sew from her father at a young age gave Tiye a reverence for the construction of garments and pattern making which transcends throughout the collections today. The brand’s inclusive ethos stems from Tiye’s upbringing, growing up with the notion that gender need not apply to quality garments.
