A forerunner to the modern day designer textile industry, the family-own maharam became well known first not as a supplier to the fashion industry of Garment District, but as the go-to fabric provider for stage sets and costumes of Broadway. After a stint as the primary furnisher for the landmarked TWA Terminal by Eero Saarinen, the U.S. Pavilion of 1967 World Expo, and the Centre Georges Pompidou, the maharam family embarked on the concept of contract textile. Today, the maharam Collection is not only one of the most extensive fabric line, it is ever expanding still, through new designs, techniques, and tools.
Following a wildly popular run in 2007 and 2009, the company partnered with Nike Sportswear for a third time in facilitating a limited collection for women. Fashion forward with the “always in” color black, the Nike Sportswear x maharam Women Destroyer Jacket is a serious “weapon of choice” for an all-girl night out or a 20K jog around Central Park. Sublimated block letter print, also in black, makes it unique among the many collegiate/varsity jackets out there. Water resistant construct, in addition to the quilted lining ensure Mother Nature to know her place when you’re around. Available now exclusively through NikeStore.com
