To get the appearance which the author had in mind, you need to install Moka and Arc icons and then choose the Arc icon theme in your Desktop Environment's preferences.

Here is how it looks with the Arc theme (Darker) enabled in Cinnamon 3.0.5:

And here is a screenshot from XFCE 4.12:

The author stated the following:

This theme doesn't provide application icons, it needs another icon theme to inherit them. By default this theme will look for the Moka icon theme to get the missing icons. If Moka is not installed it will use the Gnome icon theme as fallback. To change the application icons, edit Arc/index.theme and replace Moka with the name of your preferred icon theme

For example, if you like the Faenza icon theme, change

[Icon Theme]
Comment=Arc Icon theme


[Icon Theme]
Comment=Arc Icon theme
