Since 1947, Palladium has been putting their canvas and rubber expertise to use by making incredibly hardwearing boots. The timeless design of Palladium’s signature Pampa canvas boot is still as relevant now, over 60 years later, as it ever was.
Maharishi was founded in 1994, with a vision to create environmentally friendly, fair-trade, long-lasting and high-quality utilitarian clothing. Featuring hemp and natural fibers, organic cottons and recycled military clothing, promoting the natural roots and artistic influences of camouflage.
Maharishi’s Summer 2011 look book features a collaboration with the heritage boot brand Palladium. Palladium made boots in 1947 for the French Foreign Legion, who fought in the deserts of North Africa. Maharishi’s Summer 2011 collection entitled ‘Theatre of War’ takes its inspiration from 1940s North African desert military, making for a logical partnership between these two brands.
All the models in the Maharishi look book wear Palladium boots and there is also the addition of the unique ‘Palladium Compatible’ Fixed Custom Snopants, which are designed to be the perfect length and fit to complement Palladium’s signature ‘Baggy’ boot. The custom Snopants finish high on the ankle and can attach to the boot via Palladium popstuds on the inside ankle of the Snopants. There are also runours that the two brands may collaborate to create a co-branded boot for Summer 2011, so watch this space.
