After releasing a teaser for the upcoming Nike collaboration recently, London-based label maharishi has now officially unveiled the full capsule. The joint release includes three different silhouettes, with the Air Force 1 High Premium, Air Force 1 Low Utility Premium and Air Max 270 Bowfin Premium all redesigned with nods to maharishi’s Fall/Winter 2018 “International Redactioniste” collection.
The Air Force 1 High Premium comes in red or navy and has been wrapped in a wool upper as a nod to military officer uniforms, stadium jackets and the Moon Melton wool used by maharishi. The Swoosh is also reworked featuring classic maharishi themes, with intricate embroidered golden dragons and tigers making up the motif. Lastly, the sneaker is finished with maharishi’s redacted MILTYPE branding. The redacted text also appears on the Air Force 1 Low Utility, which features a woven ripstop complete with all-over redacted document print.
