These limited edition graphic t-shirts have been designed by Ardentees and highly acclaimed photographer Gonzalo Bènard. The debut collaboration between Ardentees and Gonzalo Bènard sees them create four exclusive t-shirts which feature photographs by Gonzalo Bènard. The collections of four unique graphic tees are limited to 100 pieces worldwide. Each exclusive shirt comes with its own individually numbered woven tag sewn on and an individually numbered hang tag.
The designs for the t-shirts come from highly acclaimed Lisbon-based photographer Gonzalo Bènard who explores the power and influence of memory in his work. Living and working in Spain, Portuguese born artist Gonzalo Bènard lets his expressions and creativity flow by ignoring distractions like colors, backgrounds and clothing and instead he plays with light, emotions and people. As a child Gonzalo Bènard would nap in front of Hieronymous Bosch paintings through the years spent living and studying at a Tibetan monastery-school, from this he uses his personal experience to create highly imaginative work. Gonzalo Bènard’s work can be found in both public and private collections worldwide, and his growing reputation has led to several high profile commissions.

Getting that indie rock look is all the rage at the moment and can be easily done. We recommend pairing up some blue denim skinny jeans with some dark brown boots with a graphic t-shirt. Any colour jeans will work and you can choose from a range of different colours and shades of boots. At present suede boots are a good choice but remember to get protector and a good cleaner to keep those boots in pristine condition.
For the top half we would choose a large print graphic t-shirt that was bold and classy. At Urban Cove we have a range of different styles of graphic t-shirts from indie and rock brands. For a more rock style check out Dead Cities, Better Off Dead and False. If you want the indie look then Ivory Skies, Das Monk and Comune have some brilliant graphic designs that really stand out.
This style can even be worn on a night out and can be smarten up further with a fitted dark cardigan to really pull of a smart look with a cool laid back style.
This is a real winner and can even be a style worn by women as well for that rock chick look. Check out UrbanCove for more indie rock clothing.
