Los Angeles–based AIREI offers a fresh take on contemporary ready-to-wear. Creative director Drew Curry founded the brand in 2021 after studying the political and technical history of cotton—an exploration that informed the brand's signature deconstructed aesthetic. Its visibly stitched, pieced-together style is also paralleled in the brand's name, which is translated from the Greek expression "to cut away." Across the collection of relaxed open knits, asymmetrical quilted vests, and paneled denim, raw thread detailing serves as a reminder of each garment's underlying components. Challenging traditional tailoring, AIREI makes clothing for the unconventional.
