This dynamic two-tone jacket repackages traditional Pakistani truck art culture with a distinctive Rastah twist. The trucking industry has been a leading influence in the creation of this collection and this garment is our most direct homage to artistic traditions of our latest muse. The hap-hazard split design, however, also eludes to the darker aspects of this striking and complicated industry, which we have also sought to explore throughout our current work. The upper half, made of acrylic wool was handpainted by Bilal, one of Rastahs oldest collaborators, a furniture and truck painter in Lahore. Previously, he painted the immensely popular Poets Jacket for Volume II. The lower half of this jacket was constructed from black handwoven acrylic fabric with delicate coloured yarn detailing.
