Editor’s Notes: Carhartt WIP has tapped L’Art de l’Automobile, a used car dealership-cum-fashion-label operated by Parisian car specialist Arthur Kar, for its latest capsule.
The cuts and silhouettes riff off the design frequently used for a mechanics uniform in reference to Kar’s formative years spent skipping school to help his father fix cars – the pants even come with a wrench clipped to the leg. Meanwhile, the new green colorway is inspired by foliage of Lebanon (where Kar grew up) and the specific shade of green seen on the Italian Fevres Rangers from 1965.
The collection includes classic aforementioned Carhartt WIP pieces and graphic tees, accessories, and stickers.
