After dropping a collection of hardwearing stand cotton accessories, London-based label maharishi has returned with a new capsule inspired by Japan. Named “maha Boro,” the collection is influenced by a traditional Japanese practice of reusing textiles through piecing, patching and stitching. This technique — named Boro — originated on the island of Honshu and frequently used layers of hemp to produce pieces.

The technique is referenced throughout the collection, with a patchwork effect and stitching detailing used on all of the pieces. Standout pieces in the “maha Boro” capsule include the MA-65 Kimono, the collarless shirt and MA-65 Cargo Pant, with staple crewneck sweatshirts and T-shirts also featuring. The collection comes in a color palette of black, white and “Mil Olive.” The full “maha Boro” capsule is available now from the maharishi web store, with prices ranging from £450 GBP ($615 USD) for the kimono to £115 GBP ($160 USD) for the tee.

In related news, LUKER by NEIGHBORHOOD has unveiled a new drop of coach jackets.
