With reference to his Rasta collection, for which Philip Treacy was commissioned to make the hats, Rifat Ozbek stated 'I got my inspiration from the Rastafarians in Notting Hill Gate and mixed elements with high tops to make it more ‘streety’'. The hat was worn with stretch body suits in 'Rasta' colours.
