Since offering up a line of colorful knitwear for Fall/Winter 2018, Arte Antwerp has journeyed to the other side of the world to shoot its Spring/Summer 2019 lookbook in Dakar. The new assortment from the Belgium-based brand was inspired by its hometown harbor, presenting easy, workwear pieces across a pastel palette.
Within the range are hoodies, knit sweaters, graphic T-shirts and denim jackets. Polo tops and tees are offered in soft shades such as light blue and salmon, while a dark navy provides the foundation on a crewneck and sleeveless vest silhouette. “Arte” logos serve as the key detail on the outerwear styles, with variations of the word including embroidery and a bold yellow patch. Sand tones like tan, off-white and khaki are dispersed throughout, helping to evoke a minimalist aesthetic. The images were shot by Belgian photographer Jef Claes and showcase models from Senegal; designer Bertony Da Silva street-casted a group of boys from the area after they passed by his team at a local bar.
To shop the collection, visit Arte Antwerp’s official website where pieces are available now.
