Stone Island SS17 Lookbook...
Keen to see the back of 2016? Stone Island have released their SS17 lookbook to help you on your way.
As you’d expect from Stone Island, the upcoming collection draws inspiration from modern military and activewear aesthetics with references blending together in functional pieces. Familiar styles return in new colours, including warm and sophisticated neutrals mixed with bright but pastel tones. Here’s a look at the key themes:
Jackets and sweatshirts are given a unique finish by hand dying and decolouring with a corrosive paste. The result is a typically ballsy take on the deconstructed and distressed trend.
Stone Island has always been heavily inspired by active sportswear, resulting in functional pieces made from the most innovative fabrics. For SS17 there's a brand new Reflective Jacket with a nylon textile base plated in a highly-reflective coating made using a resin bath that incorporates thousands of glass micro spheres. It sounds incredibly technical because it is.
Stone Island House Check
The House Check returns on blousons, jackets and hooded vests, printed using a sublimatic transfer technique that guarantees the highest quality and most durable print.
Nylon Metal Colour Weft
The best-selling Nylon Metal fabric returns in overshirts and swim shorts. The fabric's distinctive metallic sheen is enriched by the different colours used in its warp and weft yarns.
Stone Island Marina
Heavily inspired my nautical styles and designs, the Stone Island Marina project is where modern meets heritage. Innovative materials are used for a fresh graphical reinterpretation of stripe prints on Tank Shield outerwear, t-shirts, shorts and waterproof Ortlieb® Drybags.
