maharishi launches a collection for the Fall/Winter 2020 season honoring traditional Vietnamese embroidery techniques. The London fashion label launches a set of tees, hoodies, sweats, trousers, overshirts, and a tapestry for the colder temperature. The capsule reworked a traditional Vietnamese form of embroidery with a heavy inspiration from artwork by Story Cloth made by the Montagnard mountain tribes in the Vietnamese Highlands.
These artful tapestries showcase bloodshed and the violence that the Hmong people gone through during the Vietnam War. The seasonal capsule altered this harsh concept to a new perspective. The brand takes the traditional idea and translates messages of love, unity, and piece through embroidery. The color palette of the seasonal collection is earthy and dark with olive green, maroon, and black.
