ROMANIAN CAMOUFLAGE SHIRT - 1990’S
Romanian shirt with half body vintage Hawaiian aloha shirt applied on front and elbow patch details.
The aloha shirt of the insert will be allover, with the tone similar to the camouflage base color green, black,tone of blue and brown, and will always be different depending on availability.
The earliest camouflage uniforms worn by Romanian military personnel were made in Russia and were copied from the WW2 era Soviet masksirovochyi kombinezon or leaf pattern uniform. A similar style uniform, but printed in a different style of vegetated print, was also produced - both entering service in the 1960s. These remained the only standard issue camouflage uniforms until 1990, when an indigenous design was introduced.
Only four years after the M1990 pattern was introduced, a different Romanian camouflage design emerged known as the M1994. Often called "fleck" pattern in English (perhaps due to its resemblance to the German flecktarn), the pattern generally incorporates black, brown & green spots on a khaki or light green background. This pattern was used interchangeably with the M1990, and there have been numerous accounts of both patterns being worn by the same individual. As with the M1990 pattern, the M1994 fell out of use in 2002 with the adoption of DPM.
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.
