UK label maharishi have collaborated with London based Photographer Alastair Strong to produce a London climate inspired technical shoot.
It highlights a waterproof capsule collection that is integrated into the maharishi AW15 collection, with technical seam sealed jackets featuring Mat_Air™ Nylon in a number of urban silhouettes.
The fabric is proprietary to Italian mill Serates, constructed from a waterproof, breathable membrane that features a porous micro-layer resulting in an incredibly soft touch.
Full protection from the elements is ensured with a plasma finishing process that results in extreme water repellant properties and durability.
It typically lasts three times the number of washing cycles of comparable fabrics, while offering four-way stretch for unimpeded movement, even in closely fitted styles.
The capsule collection is designed with the urban commuter and traveller in mind.
Featuring pack-away hoods, secure pockets, neoprene side panels, ergonomic sleeve constructions, and unbeatable packability.
As per the maharishi ethos, the Integrated Transit Jacket takes design cues from the contemporary Police uniform, with both the Maha Parka and Long Waterproof Parka remaining true to classic military design.
Rounding off looks are a waterproof high-frequency welded nylon backpack and MA phone bag with rubberised water resistant closure.
For those seeking the ultimate in stealth there is the Shinobi Visor, modelled after elements of the US Army’s extreme extended cold weather kit. It features fleece backed reflective glass bead material so effective at returning white light to its source that it can conceal the identity from night-lit CCTV cameras.
