Turning tragedy into an opportunity, London-based photographer Petra Valenti stepped out into the rowdy streets while the London Riots took place in 2011. Looters raided plenty of retail outlets, and Valenti happened to come across youths stealing in broad daylight from the Carhartt store. Rather than frown down at the activity, Carhartt WIP collaborated with Valenti, showcasing the devastation of the London economy and society, as well as perhaps making commentary on the popularity of their brand at the same time. Expect this t-shirt to drop soon at the usual Carhartt WIP flagship stores and retailers.
