Bertony Da Silva is an Antwerp-based designer who could be best described as an example of a so-called cross-over. He began graphic design studies at the Sint Lucas School of Arts to never actually graduate. Instead, he took all the knowledge he gained during those years and used it as an inspiration for what started as a T-shirt label but gradually evolved into premium menswear label Arte Antwerp.
His background in visual arts interfaced with environmental influences results in advanced designs of great comfort which is sustained by no-nonsense aesthetics. All of this emanates from a strong belief in authenticity, bravery and above all a never-ending progressiveness.
