After creating a football-themed collection with Umbro earlier this summer, London-based label Aries has now partnered with Cali Thornhill DeWitt to present a new collaboration with NTS. The “Made in Italy” capsule features a range features tees, sweats, socks and bowling shirts, all sporting dystopian messages.
The messages throughout the collection include bilingual phrases such as “TUTTI PAZZI” (Italian for “all crazy”) and “HELL ON EARTH.” The wording is a reference to both the present day, with its uncertain political and environmental times, and the Anglo-Italian identity of Aries and founder Sofia Prantera.
To launch the collection, Aries has worked with NTS to curate a special radio show featuring 20 of their favorite artists and producers, including Clairo, Nabihah Iqbal, Obongjayar, Shygirl and Vegyn. All of the artists will be gifted a personalized friends and family Aries x Cali Thornhill DeWitt x NTS varsity jacket that will not release more widely.
The full collection is due to release on July 18 via the Aries web store.
