For Fall/Winter 2014, maharishi celebrates its 20th anniversary while exploring the theme of "Skeuomimicry RIP," a reference to the decline of a design practice in which new technologies are visually explained by symbols representing their analog/physical world versions. Consequently, the collection's primary design motifs are inspired by the camouflage systems perfected by nature, including tiger stripes and the "rosette" patterns on leopards. They appear in disrupted and abstracted forms, stylized with pixelation and highlighted by the "DPM: Pixel Bonsai Forest," a pixelated version of the Bonsai Forest pattern. Technical materials featured here include waterproof Sympatex fabrics and organic cottons from Swiss textile mill Schoeller, showcasing advanced moisture management. Upcycling, a vital component of every maharishi collection of the last 20 years, is seen in the reworking of Polish, Czech, Serbian and US military garments, with maharishi's version of the classic MA-1 jacket being a particular standout. Check out the lookbook for maharishi's Fall/Winter 2014 "Skeuomimicry RIP" collection below.
