Maharishi SS18

Spring Summer 2018 Collection.

London’s Maharishi returns with a new selection of militaristic clothing equally influenced by Japanese craftsmanship and Western streetwear. Up-cycled pieces are complemented by organic cottons and comfortable fits, with plenty of eye-catching graphics. Like the brand’s previous collections, Eastern influences, such as tapered trousers and sashiko-style stitches, appear throughout the collection — with maharishi’s recognizable branding further accenting the items. Military influences appear in the form of bomber jackets, camouflage layers and multi-pocketed jackets, adding a contemporary air by blending the armed forces functionality with slouchy styling.

About Maharishi.

1994 was groundbreaking for urban culture. Most Hip Hop heads will cite it as the year Nas debuted with Illmatic and Biggie dropped Ready to Die. Street-wear fans will mention it as the year Supreme opened on Lafayette Street and NEIGHBORHOOD set up shop in Harajuku, Tokyo. But it’s also the year Common released his underground classic, Resurrection and Outkast changed the perception of southern hip-hop. It’s the very same year that Hardy Blechman founded the cult UK based streetwear brand maharishi. The son of an antiques dealer, Blechman founded Maharishi—meaning “a Hindu teacher of mystical knowledge” or translated from Sanskrit as “great seer”—with the idea of offering military-inspired, technically superior garments made with natural fibers through ethical, fair-trade production. While these sorts of intentions may seem like a no-brainer in 2017, they were absolutely trailblazing in the mid-90’s. According to a 2011 profile in maharishi Journal, the online publication for the brand’s web store, Blechman’s “former experience lay in the international military and industrial clothing surplus trade, started maharishi by producing hemp and other natural fiber clothing as well as recycling work-wear and military surplus.” Unlike the militaristic origin of the garments, however, the brands ethos is decidedly pacifist. As stated on window of the maharishi flagship store in London’s Soho neighborhood, the brand “aims to convey a strong anti-war sentiment through its use of camouflage—reclaiming its symbolic value away from war, back to its roots in nature and development by artists and to highlight objections to continued 21st century Warfare.”
