Stone Island AW18
Stone Island’s new AW18 collection is all about industrial strength, and like usual they’ve done the lab work to prove it. The new season extends their adventures in experimental fabrication and brings an updated colour palette of reflective metallics and rusty hues.
For the eco-conscious among us, Stone Island’s new Man Made Suede uses an elaborate technical process to re-work nylon microfibres and polyurethane resins, creating an animal-free, synthetic suede. They also help prove Gore-Tex isn’t just for hiking pensioners by utilising the protective membrane in a lightweight sweater with the new Infinium Soft Lined Shell.
Last season we had alligator camouflage, and this season Stone Island has ditched the Everglades for the Bay of Bengal with white tiger inspired camo. Used across sweaters, jackets and trousers, rose gold, black pigment and black patent are printed onto fabric that's filled with Primaloft. This exclusive fibre mix provides much-needed insulation for autumn months - much like the tiger fur it’s inspired by.
