Burgeoning fashion designer Aaron Potts set intentions on uplifting community for his Fall/Winter ‘22 New York Men’s Day presentation. He titled his collection “Skinfolk,” as a tribute to the creativity and enduring spirit of diversity.
The Detroit born-and-raised, Brooklyn-based artisan – whose brand name is APOTTS – presented a genderless collection that encompassed 27 sepia-toned and sculptural looks. Tops and pants incorporated a mash-up of fleece and textured velvet, leather dolman sleeved crop jackets, bright animal-print, and wide-legged trousers.
Key items include a brown oversized and embellished tweed poncho, a pair of black drawstring pants with ruched hemming, and a rustic tie-dye matching top-and-bottom set.
Speaking about his design philosophy, Potts says “Details are thoughtful and artistic, silhouettes are graphic and have a distinct feeling of ease and airiness.”
“Real style is about spirit, not about physical differences or trends,” he adds.
As a previous intern for established designers including Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan, Potts is poised to leave his mark on the fashion world, as evidenced by scrolling through the collection gallery above.

Elsewhere in New York Fashion Week, OVERCOAT dedicated its Fall/Winter 2022 collection to “Winter Air”.
