The majority of “Satanic Panic” is unexpected and throws one off the track you’d think Aries would go down. Sure, there’s a range of track jacket and pants, hoodies, T-shirts, and other essentials that the brand has perfected so well, but there’s also plenty of elevated garments that explore an even wilder side to Aries (alongside essentials that step further into the Aries aesthetic).
For example, technical and artisanal design details can be seen complementing and contrasting each other throughout the FW21 offering, with classic examples of traditional tailoring sporting nylon and track-panel details, or patchwork polar fleeces being worked over in artworks that explore mysticism yet still sporting technical finishing touches.
Hand-painted symbols and emblems of fertility, snakes, and runes go to show some of the intricacies on offer from Aries, but what we think is even more outstanding is its take on classic garments. The duffle-like overcoat is oversized perfectly and features red Aries-styled letters all over it, the boxy-fit white shirt fitted with mystic figures all over it is another seasonal masterpiece, and oversized mohair-mix waffle knit grandad cardigans and tank vests combine traditional cuts with their contrasting neon-hued temple logos.
Throughout the collection, you’ll find a new range of denim — some featuring all-over prints and others serving different finishes on either leg — lots of tie-dyed pieces taking over padded track pants, sweats and more, and of course, accessories playing off of cultural undertones such as the football scarves that have been given a quintessential Aries twist.
The Aries FW21 “Satanic Panic” collection can be seen above and all will be available to purchase in the coming days on Aries’ website and at select stockists worldwide.
