Sofia Pantera, founder of London-born streetwear brand Aries, is no stranger to rebellion. With an affinity to skate culture and punk, the Central Saint Martins trained Pantera has made no secret of her desire to challenge the gender binaries that still blight streetwear. Her designs, which often employ experimental dye techniques, are bold, brazen, and built for all. The Aries FW19 collection follows this disobedient path, and it’s finally hit the shelves of luxury retailers, including MATCHESFASHION.COM.
Pantera has looked to subcultures past and present for the latest Aries opus, with ’90s references running throughout. This logo tie-dye T-shirt reflects the brand’s skate culture roots, as well as a commitment to quality. The vivid dyed tee is 100 percent cotton and is made in Italy.
Non-conforming doesn’t have to mean no comfort either. The paisley track pants, which continue the bold aesthetic, come in mid-weight fleece and feature nylon knee panels. Other statement-making highlights include the “No Problemo” sweater, featuring a print befitting skate culture’s more laidback approach to life.
