Instilling their pacifist military design with a retro-futurist outlook, Maharishi present their latest offering of cutting edge, street-ready style.
Presenting their latest collection, London-based outfit Maharishi deliver a cutting edge interpolation of their signature aesthetic language. Drawing on vintage military garment design, forward thinking streetwear and technical apparel, "East West Futurists" reflects on the way the year 2020 was imagined back in the '90s, when Hardy Blechman first started the brand.
Detailed with 3M thread for a futuristic twist, Maharishi's signature blend of East and West cultivates a varied offering that bridges the gap between classic military apparel and traditional Japanese garments. Vintage Sukajan-style embroideries are embellished with reflective outlines, transforming heritage imagery into futuristic depictions of cybernetic samurai, alien geishas and cyborg dragons - a dystopian imagining of the brand's recognisable graphics.
Complete with Maharishi's legendary interest in disruptive pattern materials and technical construction, this collection is rooted in their dedication to sustainable practices and natural fabrics. Reflecting on the unpredictable nature of the contemporary climate as a result of man, this season's DPM patterns draw inspiration from inclement weather conditions, with the Neo Rain and the Desert Rain camo both featuring heavily.
