MYAR SS20COLLECTION / RE_ALOHA / PRESENTS
SPANISH ARMY SHIRT - 1980’S
Spanish jacket with vintage Hawaiian aloha shirt coming out from hem.
The aloha shirt of the insert will have a placed graphic and will always be different depending on availability.
The jacket is part of the M77 kit created for the Spanish air force.
The standard M77 uniform was used by the ‘Ejercito del Aire Espanol, but its colour was different depending on which unit.
The color green was chosen for the elite forces, the ‘Escuadrón de Zapadores Paracaidistas’.
The M77 jacket was made with cotton and polyester and had two pockets on the chest and hooks to close it.
The jacket was used while in barracks or on the field and was combined with cargo trousers in the same color shade.
MYAR commitment is to bring back to life past used military garments that have been stocked for long time in darkened warehouse, bringing back the light in the present time, for a second life in a civil environment.
The up-cycling process involving MYAR is not only an aesthetic intervention but also a process of historical knowledge
On each garment is applied a QR code that, once scanned, will tell the historical origin of the piece and the type of workmanship that has been made.
This process of customization is also witnessed by a small white cloth sachet containing scraps of fabrics: a part of the past of this garment, which has been modified from the original to be worn today for the future coming.
