Aries Dresses Vans Silhouettes in Mismatched Prints and Patterns

Creating an “accidental recipe” for the designs.

Aries has reunited with Vans for the second time, coming four years after their limited-edition release in 2017. The collection of footwear and apparel incorporates a wide range of influences, from messages of self-expression and creativity to Americana references and Aries’ signature graphic identity.

The footwear in the collection includes two colorways of the Vans Authentic — one arriving in tie dye and tiger stripe, while the other features a multicolor marijuana leaf pattern — and the Sk8-Mid, with two brighter colorways. Rounding out the footwear is the Era and Chukka, both of which feature tie dye designs.

The graphic reference comes from a “customize your own Vans” poster Aries founder Sofia Prantera discovered while working at Slam City Skates. “We wanted the collaboration to follow this accidental recipe; some colours don’t quite match like they have been made of found pieces of material; graphics and logos are incoherent; random apocalyptic stories appear on the soles; while the phrase “go your own way” and “Art Trip” reinforce the message of individuality and rule breaking that is shared by both brands.”

As well as footwear, the collection also features a range of apparel pieces. The clothing, such as hoodies and tees, continues the graphic themes, with tie dye items, and a mixture of Vans’ logo houses with Aries’ signature temple graphic.

Take a look at the collaboration in the gallery above. The full collection is due to release via the Aries web store on August 21.
