Elevating functionality to the apex of this latest drop, maharishi partners with renowned Swiss textile manufacturer Schoeller in delivering its 2013 fall/winter collection. Moisture-wicking, stain-repelling and cooling properties offer the body a higher order of protection from the elements, with organic woven cottons and jersey cloths used throughout the release. Hydrophobic treatments allow each garment to maintain air permeability and comfort, while still serving a utilitarian purpose. For this season, inspiration was derived from the notion of the modern day survivalist; those who acknowledge that some day our basic food and energy needs may be stripped by a disruption on a social and political scale. Look for the collaborative drop to be available soon at maharishi stockists and the London-based label’s online store.
