MILTYPE · Pink Panther

maharishi’s MILTYPE capsule consists of a number of sweats and t-shirts constructed in organic cotton, staying true to maharishi’s environmentally-friendly ethos. These are offered in classic colourways maha olive, black, and white, in addition to AW16 seasonal colours Lama, Rust, and Pink Panther.

Most notable is Pink Panther, which draws influence from the Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) – a reconnaissance and raiding unit of the British Army during the Second World War. Contrary to more standardised styles of camouflage, the LRDG utilised a dusty shade of pink to colour their vehicles. The pink paint scheme was said to be a highly effective desert camouflage to hide the vehicles at the most dangerous times of the day, dawn and dusk – helping the vehicles disappear into the hazy horizon.
