Maharishi commemorates its 30th anniversary, it coincides with a unique event – the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese calendar.
Collections rich in narratives and artworks symbolize flexibility, strength, and resilience, exploring the synergy between nature and technology and celebrating their harmonious coexistence.
One of the main themes is bamboo. This plant is widely used as a building material and scaffolding in the Far East, especially the ‘Giant Dragon Bamboo,’ known for having the largest and tallest stems among all known bamboo species. The bold embroideries and prints in the collection draw inspiration from the intense concentration of neon lights and bamboo scaffolding along the iconic Nathan Road in Hong Kong, emphasizing their scale and luminosity.
Bamboo images also carry auspicious meanings, harmonizing with Feng Shui symbols associated with abundance and fortune. Original Snopants®, hoodies, and various versions of the MA-1 Flight jacket are adorned with mystical creatures featuring bamboo structures.
On its 30th anniversary, Maharishi revisits camouflage themes and consistently employs eco-friendly fabrics. The seasonal technical offerings continue to use recycled nylon, plant-dyed by the Japanese Komatsu mill, for new refined silhouettes of outerwear and pants.
For the warmer part of the summer season, a lightweight selection of materials, such as Japanese Wagara Stripe and Italian Cupro Twill, has been designed, continuing the Upcycled series made from repurposed parachutes for classic styles like the Monk Snoparka, kimono, and bags.
The Maharishi collection is now available on the website and in flagship stores in London and New York.
