Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

The violence and destruction of property surrounding the 2011 London riots was devastating. Notably, a laundry list of independent record labels including Warp, Domino, Mute, 4AD, and XL lost valuable inventory when the 200,000 square-foot PIAS warehouse was burned to the ground. Countless retail shops endured days of looting and vandalism. During the mayhem, photographer Petra Valenti snapped the dramatic photo above of a few looters robbing a Carhartt store while a bright red sports car burns in the foreground. The designers at Carhartt, likely drawn to the gravity of the photo, have included the image on a new tee for its SS 2013 line. [via]
