Building on a traditional Tigerstripe base, maharishi’s DPM: Tigerstripe Murale nods toward camouflage of the Vietnam war era.
Rather than opting for common rotary printing techniques, maharishi utilise hand screen printing. This method allows for manipulation of the pattern – resulting in dense and sparse variants reminiscent of late 60’s Tigerstripe camouflage.
Also, having utilised reflective 3M technology since 1994, SS17 brings an iteration of DPM: Tigerstripe Murale that features 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Materials.
3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Materials use a technology known as retro reflection, which occurs when light rays are returned in the direction from which they came.
The MA65 Fishtail Parka -a silhouette that merges an elongated MA1 jacket with a fishtail parka – has been updated with white light reactive camouflage.
This further reinforces the use of camouflage as a symbol of nature and art, not as a means to kill members of our own species.
