Where the runway meets the street

Maharishi presents a modern special forces inspired collection for Fall/Winter 2011, entitled ‘Into the Light: Survival 2012’. High tech webbing and other interesting production methods have been applied, as well as Swiss Riri zippers and overall a range of high tech Swiss materials, including the densely woven naturally waterproof organic cotton ETA, Schoeller cloth with anti-abrasion Kevlar fibres, alongside more elaborate pieces in several types of 3M reflective material which only turn on when exposed to direct white light; incorporated within construction thread, cloth, print ink and embroidery threads.

maharishi has long produced all its jersey and sweat in Organic yarn, and this season many of the wovens are also organic. A darkened palette of black and charcoal makes up the main color theme of the collection.

The Fall/Winter 2011 range is certainly a new look for maharishi in comparison to previous collections, while still staying true to many of founding principles.
