Autumn / Winter 2023 · AN EXPLORATION OF INDUSTRIAL WORKWEAR 1523 - 2023

Maharishi reveals its latest editorial showcasing technical styles which accompanies its seasonal interpretation of workwear and original silhouettes. Shot in London against a stark industrial landscape the design ideology of duality is explored through MIL-SPEC fabrics and pacifist silhouettes which have been produced.

Cordura® NYCO® and Alpex®’s waterproof fleece are two examples of fabrication used for the uniforms of Japanese and French militaries, as these fabrics serve as juxtaposition for pacifist silhouettes with eastern asymmetric tie closures and openings. The study of Japanese firefighters from the Edo period to present day inspires surface design celebrating Hanko style prints, Pax Cultura symbols and artworks taken from Ukiyo-e print masters such as Kuniyoshi and Kuniteru. Firefighters from this period wore reversible coats (hikeshi-banten), adorned with folklore heroes and mythological beasts on the interior that worked alongside and protected the firefighters in battling blazes.

Drawing parallels between the uniforms of harnessed construction workers, key pieces are showcased with Hi-Vis panelling and patch work of reclaimed surplus fabrics. A combination of technical properties on shirting, cargos and smocks allow for multiple pocket arrangements and enhanced durability.

The latest delivery is available now exclusively on, in stores London and New York soon.
