London Undercover has teamed up with maharishi to produce two striking umbrellas. The pattern on the fabric has been inspired by the dazzle paint scheme used on Navy ships during World War I. The complex geometric shapes were designed to confuse a German torpedo operator as to the direction the ship was traveling, the distance away and how fast it was moving. With DPM’s aim to detach camouflage from its military associations and promote its national roots and artistic influences, the Bamdazzle pattern incorporates multiple contrasting bamboo stems, interrupting and intersecting each other. The theme is continued in the make up of the umbrella with a special natural bamboo/whangee handle. Available in two variants, the umbrellas are made in allied France with a traditional metal frame and runner attached to a natural beech wood shaft. The premium umbrellas come with a special collaboration label and engraved metal plate. Available now through the maharishi store as well as online via maharishistore.com & londonundercover.co.uk. Retail is set at £120.
