This collection consisting of vintage leather jackets hand painted and tailored by our own David Sabastian will be sold exclusively at FourTwoFour on Fairfax. The artwork was drawn with acrylic and leather based paints and was inspired by David Sabastian’s childhood memories and iconic pop art from the 1980′s.

“My creative DNA is the spawn of everything I have seen since I can remember. A leather jacket is nothing but a blank canvas for me to illustrate the things that mean the most to me. Pop Art, cartoons, high fashion designer logos,and street art juxtaposed against a leather jacket has always interested me. What the leather jacket means to Western culture has also fascinated me as well,” says Sabastian. “RAD has given me the opportunity to express what inspires me the most! Fashion is an extension of art and i feel RAD sits on the cusp of Fashion and art. You don’t know if you want to wear it or frame it – thats the beauty of it.”

Everyone should own one piece in there closet that says “this is me!”  I’m not  sure how many people could actually pull off one of these pieces off but the brave, unapologetic tastemakers out there should definitely pick up one of these conversation pieces.
