Key Pieces: Puffer outerwear is a new addition this season and the leather option with a thick shearling collar is the collection’s standout.
Editor’s Notes: London-based label Aries has looked to the ’90s as a point of departure for its FW19 collection, which features a range of technical-inspired wear including windbreaker material trousers, dresses, and skirts.
Founder and designer Sofia Prantera’s fascination with hand dyeing, printing, and hand finished garment construction lends the new range a subversive aesthetic, one that is characterized by military space-dyed jumpers, paisley, and futuristic knitwear.
Aries’ trans-seasonal “No Problemo” graphic theme lends the collection yet another dimension, which can be found printed across sweaters and woolen accessories.
In addition to the shearling collar puffer jacket, there are two reversible options. In response to popular demand, Aries has created men’s cotton boxers this season, which arrive in plaid and pinstriped styles to complement its successful range of women’s underwear.
Will Sweeney‘s graphics feature on the blue & white- striped dress shirts. The collection makes use of the Leopard and chain-print as well as the new Aurora print, which was inspired by the Northern Lights and a PC screen saver.
