“Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction.”

Desert: Storm is the latest editorial in an ongoing series that pairs Maharishi clothing against nature’s elements. The instalment sees the iconic British streetwear brand head to sandy plains to showcase the latest line of camouflage patterns.




The SS16 lookbook features snapshots that portray zero visibility conditions that the unforgiving Sahara Desert is notorious for. The series introduces Maharishi’s seasonal DPM: British Bonsai Forest camouflage pattern in three variants; Papal Woodland, Sand and Desert Blaize. The diversity of camouflage is displayed across an array of traditional utilitarian aesthetics, most noticeably the Suede Flight Jacket, Hakama Pants and the Desert Blaize/White Reversible Camo T-Shirt. All the camouflage styles in this collection are fully reversible, enabling the pattern to be worn internally for a versatile style. Other reversible styles in the collection include the Papal Woodland/Sand Reversible Camo Sweater and the Desert Camo Swim Shorts.

More directional pieces in the Desert Storm editorial include the classic MA Bags that are constructed from a lightweight flight nylon across a range of neutral colour hues, including Olive, Black and Navy.
