MYAR SS20COLLECTION / RE_ALOHA / PRESENTS
RUSSIAN LONG SLEEVES STRIPE SHIRT - 1990’S
Russian long sleeve stripe shirt combined with vintage Hawaiian aloha shirt on bottom.
The aloha shirt will be always matching the stripe colors: red and black.
This traditional long-sleeved t-shirt was known as ‘Telnyashka’ in Russian and was given to the Navy forces, starting from the 20th Century.
After the Second World War, Captain Vasily Mergelov appointed to modernize the uniforms of the Airbourne Units so he decided to introduce the ‘Telnyashka’.
This t-shirt could also be sleeveless.
It was designed in 3 different colors:
- Deep blue and white stripes, for the naval infantry
- Light blue and white stripes, for the Airborne and the Spetsnatz (elite Units)
- Red and white stripes, for the National Guard
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.
