Following on from its 1960s inspired military collection early last spring, Maharishi is back and expanding on its knowledge of soldiery with this "Art of War" inspired collection. This latest capsule looks to military cultures of the past for inspiration and reinterprets iconic silhouettes and motifs.
From the Japanese Samurai to Native American Comanches, these latest pieces have drawn inspiration from a variety and storied military histories. Deadstock vintage military patches abandoned by US forces at the end of the Vietnam war are utilised throughout alongside a brand new seasonal camouflage. Elsewhere, the Tailor Shop showcases impressive and intricate embroidery in the form of the US Seawolves Helicopter Attack Squadron alongside familiar eastern mythology-inspired design.
The collection features several nods to Sun Tzu's ancient Chinese military book "The Art of War" with quotes such as "The greatest victory requires no battle" & "the art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting" displayed across several pieces.
The full collection is available now at Maharishi's webstore and is expecting to drop at selected retailers in the coming weeks! In other news, White Mountaineering x UNIQLO gear up for the great outdoors.
