Arte Antwerp is a fashion label based in Belgium and it recently unveiled its Spring/Summer 2019 collection, drawing inspiration from its own hometown and harbor. It also directly highlights West Africa's Dakar of Senegal location, translating design cues onto pieces such as tees, shirts, trousers, sweaters, jackets, and more.
The seasonal pieces are modeled by a group of Senegalese boys and the lookbook is set in the City of Dakar. The aesthetic captures the muted monochromatic themes of the concrete architecture in the city -- this contrasts against the bright color palette that the pieces are completed in including bright pink, light blue, and salmon hues. The design cues also embody a sense of preppy influence along with workwear shapes as well.
