Daniel Arsham crumbles into fashion, while Aries channels all the awkwardness of adolescence
ARIES GETS AWKWARD
For SS23, Aries produced a collection that aligns with disparate youth culture archetypes: the Camden punk, the 90s casual, the teenage romantic, the cultist, and the trust fund baby. With models – who are not natural vocalists, might I add – singing along to Do You Have Friends in your Dreams, the whole recalls all the awkwardness of adolescence. Scroll through Aries to see all the garb and its accompanying David Sims’ campaign.
MIAOU STANDS FOR MARIE ANTOINETTE
Drawing inspiration from the French countryside, It-brand MIAOU’s saucy new collection offers a contemporary take on the Marie Antoinette type. Think baby tees with corset boning, pastoral prints, and a creamy motorcycle jacket, and low-rise denim, modelled on Aweng Ade-Chuol a la campagne. Head over to MIAOU to get a glimpse.
DANIEL ARSHAM CRUMBLES INTO FASHION
It’s not just sports stars, pop stars, and reality stars launching brands, but following in the tradition of Sterling Ruby, celebrities of the art world are also approaching fashion as a way to expand their practice. Beloved of major designers and bros alike, Daniel Arsham just announced his new clothing line, dubbed Objects IV Life, which is a joint project between Arsham and London-based brand developers, Tomorrow. Breathing new life into deadstock materials, Chapter 001 includes workwear jackets, hoodies, t-shirts, and denim in mottled blues and off-whites. Head here to see more.
MY THERESA GETS MUGLERISED
An exclusive capsule collection arrived at My Theresa this week, boasting all of Casey Cadwallader’s hits – bodysuits, leggings, dresses, and denim in his signature bodyform fit. In the words of Mugler muse Megan Thee Stallion, it’s a hot girl summer, after all. Travel through the 17-piece offering here.
FAR-FETCHES SOME MAJOR COLLABORATIONS
In an ongoing series of collaborations, exclusives, and one-off creations dubbed BEAT, Farfetch has just facilitated a link-up between Peter Do and Opening Ceremony. Reimagining the brand’s familiar varsity jacket, Do has softened its silhouette using upcycled parachute material from his very first runway show and his own spacer fabric. Each numbered piece includes a cardholder with a handwritten note from all three designers (Peter Do, Humberto Leon, and Carol Lim). Log onto Farfetch to get your hands on a piece.
This week, Tremaine Emory found himself a new home in Dover Street Market, where he launched a 9-piece rhinestoned capsule, comprising t-shirts, hoodies, caps, and denim, boasting 300 hand-applied rhinestones in talismanic circles. An accompanying campaign is modelled by Jmann Patton and Brooklyn-based artist Aya Brown, who is best known for her depictions of Black female essential workers during COVID-19 and Breonna Taylor. The collection is available in all DSM stores worldwide.
