In less than 10 years, Italo-British label Aries have built a lasting iconography in their balancing act between high-brow and low-brow cultural influences, often using the latter to question the authority of the former. Their varied use of Greek ionic columns goes right to the foundations of so-called Western civilization in their lampooning of notions of respectability.
Reminiscent of merchandise issued by Italian cultural clubs and associations around the world, the Aries Men’s MIIT SS Tee proudly lays claim to the label’s Italian heritage with the label’s ‘MIIT’ logo screen printed on the front, featuring “Aries” and “Made in Italy” as stylised text framed by two ionic columns.
Though this piece is, in fact, made in Italy, these words are not only intended literally. Rather, they refer also to the label’s inspirations, both ancient and contemporary, and Aries’s dedication to quality as well as iconoclasm.
Constructed from soft cotton jersey, this classic short-sleeve t-shirt also features a ribbed crew neckline.
Made in Italy from 100% cotton.
