Japanese retailer SHIPS JET BLUE‘s private label, Acycle, is scheduled to launch a few new supplements to the already popular DPM FABRICK by maharishi accessories collection. A design partnership which first started in August of last year. MEDICOM TOY CO. invited the iconic London-base design firm, maharishi, to create a series thoughtfully composed Disruptive Pattern Material (DPM), the technical term for camouflage, as basis for its FABRICK brand of printed textile. As result, creative director Hardy Blechman and the team at maharishi devised the Bonsai Forest III DPM – a black, tone-on-tone camouflage. In reference to Japanese culture and mythology, the camouflage features silhouettes of Mount Fuji, Bonsai Tree, and Kirin, a mythical dragon-like creature.
With assistance from accessories manufacturer PORTER, Acycle utilized the MEDICOM x maharishi – FABRICK Material to create an exclusive collection, including this laptop sleeve. Insulated and waterproof, the laptop is able to hold a standard size 15″ laptop securely. Currently available in limited quantity at SHIPS JET BLUE retail branches across Japan and its online chapter on ZOZOTOWN.
