Camo and combat motifs are the bread and butter of today’s streetwear. No brand has perhaps used them as intelligently as Hardy Blechman’s maharishi, which from its inception in 1994 has set about liberating military aesthetics from their militant undertones. In recognition of maharishi’s pioneering influence, adidas have invited the brand to contribute to their Five-Two-3 project, showcasing a diverse array of lifestyle labels from around the globe. Maharishi have taken on old favorite of ours, the Stan Smith, and crafted it from baby blue chambray, a fabric commonly used in naval garbs during the Second World War. Packed with the minute details we've come to expect from maharishi it's another impressive release from a brand noted for it's strong collaborations.
