Exploding Mango Acid Wash Hoodie
The piece consists of a printed exploding mango, with the phrase “ham dekhein gey” and dates relevant to the history of censorship in Pakistan protruding out of it. The design is inspired by Mohammad Hanif’s book, "a case of exploding mangoes" which is a comic novel based on the 1988 plane crash of zia ul haq. The phrase “ham dekhein gey” holds great relevance, as this ghazal by renowned poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz, was sung by Iqbal Bano in a packed Alhamra Hall, despite a strict ban on such gatherings by then military dictator Zia ul Haq. The sleeve design is a collaboration with Lahore based calligraphy artists Zahid Mayo, who hand drew the phrase in Punjabi for Rastah. The front of the hoodie also includes INTERMISSION III custom designed logo, never to be reintroduced again.
The sweatshirt is constructed from 100% compact combed 500 gsm cotton fleece, custom milled for Rastah.
