Selectism just reported the other day about the collaboration between London Undercover and Tenue de Nimes on the denim umbrella. Today we bring you first images of the Maharishi collaboration with the umbrella makers.
“The pattern on the fabric has been inspired by the dazzle paint scheme used on Navy ships during World War 1. The complex geometric shapes were designed to confuse a German torpedo operator as to the direction the ship was travelling, the distance away and how fast it was moving.
With DPM’s aim to detach camouflage from its military associations and promote its national roots and artistic influences, the Bamdazzle pattern incorporates multiple contrasting Bamboo stems, interrupting and intersecting each other. The theme is continued in the make up of the umbrella with a special natural Bamboo/Whangee handle.
Available in 2 variants, the umbrellas are made in allied France with a traditional metal frame and runner attached to a natural beech wood shaft. The premium umbrellas come with a special collaboration label and engraved metal plate.”
The two umbrellas are now available at the London store of Maharishi and in their online store for 120 Pounds.
