Dividing the collection into two distinct parts, Maharishi’s designer Hardy Blechman merged the inspirational factors of his work to create a collection with a spiritual, religious and devotional edge, while at the same time nodding to the utilitarian, almost military uniformity of these groups.

Presenting the ‘Post-Geographic Devotional Uniform & Habits: Part II’ collection at LCM, Blechman’s pieces were predominantly  made up of earthy tones of green, gray, autumnal rust and dusty pink, with the main colour being inspired by the robes of the Tibetan monks.

The thematic representation of the East meets West duality is evident in the collection with a streetwear vibe, seamlessly meeting a feeling of spiritual devotion seen in some of the silhouettes which resemble the oversized robes of Tibetan monksand Indian Sadhus.
