Made with Love in the USA

Made In The USA

Introducing the Made with Love in the USA collection!

Party in the USA! This spring, we’re debuting our limited-edition collection of apparel in fun graphics & prints made in sunny LA. From crop tanks and graphic tees to printed pants, these super-soft styles are everything you need for your moment in the sun.

Made In The USA

Everything you need for your moment in the sun.

Last year, we traveled straight to the source to see the love in action at Antex Knitting Mills in the heart of downtown LA. The family-owned factory was opened more than 40 years ago, and employs 600 workers today. Half of those workers have been at the factory for at least 10 years, but all are considered part of the fam, too.

Each week, the factory busts out 1.5 million yards of fabric, or 3 million tees, so it didn’t take them long to produce our special collection of sunny styles. The current owner, Bill, gave us an exclusive tour of the 1,000,000 sq. ft. factory, including its 15 million pounds of yarn, 490 knitting machines and 56 dying machines.

Made with Love in the USA shows our support for our home turf, and brings you styles that represent the ease and breeze of warmer weather. Stay cozy in crop pants on a cool spring night, or throw a graphic tank over your swimsuit on a hot summer day. However you wear it, know that it was made with love, just for you.

How do you wear the collection? Show us with #AerieREAL!

Xoxo,

Aerie

What Inspired Shannon’s Look:
“I just love anything retro inspired, so I am super excited the trend is back this Spring! Aerie’s retro high-waisted swimsuits has definitely got me smitten! I went with their super fun hi-rise bikini bottom in the multi colored pattern, which is so perfect for Spring! I paired it with their crop bikini top in red! I just love the high neckline and the criss cross back is just too cute! I threw on my hi-rise festival shortie to make this look perfect for a day of cruising on the beach. I finished this look with a straw panama hat and mirrored sunnies!”

What Inspired Neal’s Look:
“My travels are always inspiring my thoughts, and in turn my style. Recently I had the opportunity to vacation in a hot climate (which was a great change of scenery from the freezing cold Canadian temps). The palms and the whole vibe of the island were very relaxing, so I went for a more relaxed look. The palm printed jogger shorts were perfect for wear from the beach to sight seeing. I mixed prints by adding a striped tee and then added a denim jacket for when it got breezy in the evening. A denim jacket is a classic that can be worked in your wardrobe all year round, and mixed with trendier pieces.”
