Another high profile collaboration comes as part of the adidas Originals Five-Two 3 Project Brands Pack. This time they worked with Maharishi on the classic Stan Smith.
In line with maharishi’s strong ‘decommissioned’ army influences, drawing attention to the beauty of camo patterns and clothing design and negating the military associations, the light blue canvas upper of this Stan Smith makeup draws inspiration from a less obvious piece of regulation apparel – naval chambray shirting circa WWII.
Contrasting white stitching continues the theme, while a red top eyelet, metal eyelets reinforcing the trademark ‘3-Stripes’ of perforation make for subtle but effective detailing. The brand’s signature dragon motif is embroidered on the tongue, with a maharishi logo applied on the heel and a special ‘XV mahadidas’ sockliner to complete a unique meeting-of-minds.
