London-based vintage store Dukes Cupboard has championed its collection of rare art T-shirts in its latest editorial shoot. The team enlisted photographer Emma Williams and the model Sam Roberts to help capture the essence of each piece, delivering an editorial indebted in ’90s inspirations to reflect the period of when these T-shirts were being made.
The campaign sees grainy images laid on top of one another in a collage-style to show different aspects of each T-shirt, allowing us to see the full piece, as well as small details such as the frayed necks and natural patinas acquired over the years. In its seven-look editorial, Dukes Cupboard spotlights some of its rarest pieces in its collection, from two Picasso T-shirts to tops that sport artwork by Sarah Lucas, Roy Lichtenstein, Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Cézanne and Keith Haring.
Now that the T-shirts have been featured in the editorial, Dukes Cupboard is ready to part with its beloved pieces. Take a look at the vintage art t-shirt editorial in the gallery above, and be sure to keep an eye out on Dukes Cupboard’s Instagram and website for the pieces’ imminent drop.
