As Maharishi celebrates its 30th anniversary, the brand presents a fitting tribute to its enduring legacy with the release of Maharishi’s M.A.L.I.C.E. Bags. This collection exemplifies its commitment to functional design. Under the guidance of Hardy Blechman, Maharishi has consistently championed the concept of “Pacifist Military Design,” and this latest offering continues to evolve that ethos.
The collection of M.A.L.I.C.E. Bags draws inspiration from the “ALICE” US Military carrying systems of the 1970s, particularly the harness-based design that evenly distributed weight across a soldier’s shoulders, waist, and hips. Maharishi has reimagined these iconic military silhouettes with modern fabrication and utility features.
Crafted from water-repellent lightweight Flight Nylon, a material reminiscent of classic MA-1 flight jackets, the M.A.L.I.C.E. bags combine durability with a lightweight design. The collection features strategic pocketing, including large front pockets and a detachable padded strap, ensuring functionality while paying homage to the ALICE system’s design language.
Whether navigating the city or venturing into nature, Maharishi’s commitment to blending style and utility shines through in this collection. With prices starting at $95, Maharishi’s M.A.L.I.C.E. Bags are a testament to the brand’s enduring dedication to innovative design and craftsmanship.
