MAHARISHI AW’13 COLLECTION IN-STORE NOW

leave a comment »

MAHA AW13

The theme for maharishi’s Autumn Winter 2013 is based on the modern day Prepper, a group who prepare for a future where our basic food and energy needs may not be provided by the state or private enterprise, following economic or societal collapse, a solar flare hitting the earth and wiping out electricity grids, a polar shift or anyone of a myriad of possible apocalyptic events.

maharishi’s camouflage DPM pattern this season is a photo real rendition of an English Oak forest infused with bright red edible berries, referencing the hi visibility colours included in many hunting patterns since several US states outlawed non high vis camo for hunting (as a result of so many fatal hunting accidents where hunters successfully hide from fellow hunters and get caught in the cross fire). With so much of the prey being colour blind, the orange and hi vis layer in the patterns is only visible to humans.

The new Maharishi collection is in-store now at CONCRETE.

MAHARISHI SPRING COLLECTION 2013

MAHA HOME

“Memento Mori: Year Of The Snake”

Maharishi launch Spring Summer 13 this month, celebrating The Chinese Year of the Snake. The collection is entitled Memento Mori, and many aspects of the collection remind us of the inevitability of death.Two red dots, representing the snake’s bite, appear on t-shirt graphics and subtly within details from bar tacks and button holes to the colouring of maharishi’s 3 circular eyelet branding.

Seasonally maharishi offer a new disruptive pattern, this time its a version of the house camo pattern. Entitled DPM: Bonsai Python, the pattern is available in woodland and night colourways. The usual bonsai trees growing from heavenly clouds and other elements are infilled with a snakeskin texture look. Although in nature there are not typically any woodland patterned snakes, maharishi take this artistic license to reinforce the theory that camouflage was only developed thanks to the research of Abbot Thayer and other natural historians and the development of Picasso’s Cubism, which allowed artists to create more abstract renditions of nature.

MAHARISHI DPM: BAMDAZZLE x CASIO G-SHOCK

leave a comment »

Maharishi’s DPM:Bamdazzle pattern was inspired by the dazzle paint scheme used on Navy ships, primarily during WWI. It consisted of a complex pattern of geometricshapes in contrasting colours, interrupting and intersecting each other in order to confuse a german torpedo operator as to the direction that the ship was travelling, how far away it was and how fast it was moving – essential information for a direct hit.

Maharishi have created there own variant called DPM: Bamdazzle, a portmanteau referencing Dazzle and Bamboo. Our interpretation of dazzle is infused with bamboo to express a core DPM theme, that camouflage ultimately has it’s roots in nature where it was discovered by natural historians, developed by artists and only later was co-opted by the military.
