MR MARVIS visited the archives of Liberty Art Fabrics to handpick the fabric of our latest full-print Limited Edition short: The Waves.
The refreshing, artistic print for The Waves is curated exclusively for MR MARVIS Limited Edition collection. The bright turquoise blue and white wavy print is applied onto high-quality stretch gabardine, creating a short that conveys timeless and artful style. The stretch gabardine ensures a comfortable fit due to smooth, finely woven high-quality cotton (97%) with elastane (3%).
The Great Wave off Kanagawa
The print of The Waves might make you think of the early 19th century woodblock print art by the Japanese Mr Hokusai; The Great Wave off Kanagawa. The Great Wave is not only his most famous work, it is one of the most recognisable works of Japanese art in the world. Boats off the Japanese coast are seriously threatened by the monster wave shown in the art work. Although you won’t see boats and Mount Fuji on MR MARVIS’ The Waves, you could see similarities in the repetitive wave print of our Limited Edition short and the wave of the woodblock print art.
Monster waves – and open water in general – can be very imposing and even threatening; you don’t see so much volume and power anywhere else. However, always be fearless. To quote the legendary surfer Mr Bohdi - fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true.
So don't hesitate and claim your pair to ensure you're on top of The Waves this summer. Although you can't stop The Waves, you can learn to surf. Shaka misters!
