MYAR SS20COLLECTION / RE_ALOHA / PRESENTS
BRITISH DESERT CAMOUFLAGE SHIRT - 1990’S
Desert camouflage shirts with vintage aloha shirts cut out in wood land camouflage shape applied on allover.
This item was part of the DPM Combat Uniform developed by the British Army at the beginning of the 1980’s for the ‘Desert Storm’ operation.
Through the years different patterns were created starting from this camouflage, so it is now possible to find it in many color variations.
This style was very appreciated by soldiers, both for the fit and the fabric.
DPM is the acronym for Disruptive Pattern Material and was introduced by the British Army during the 1960’s, now it is one of the most copied patterns.
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.
