maharishi Fall/Winter 2016 Collection
maharishi presented their Fall/Winter 2016 collection at LC:M, with the showing entitled “Post-Geographic Devotional Uniform & Habits: Part II.” Where Part I pulled inspiration from the garments of various religious sects around the world, Part II explores subcultures such as military platoons, gangs, crews and tribes. Details and cuts come from uniforms, moral codes, and sets of beliefs amongst members. And so we have a lineup that’s filled with insignia and branding. Japanese technical fabrics are leveraged throughout while the color palette features deep maroons, olives, as well as a new core color titled “Lama,” a hue inspired by the habits of Tibetan Buddhist monks. In the end, the pieces showcase the best of Japanese tailoring across a range of pieces with a strong dose of military influence.
