Fabric research and treatment
NYLON METAL ʹSPIDERʹ WATRO
SINGLE LAYER FABRIC - GARMENT DYED WITH ANTI-DROP AGENT - AIRBRUSH SPIDER WEBBING ON THE FINISHED GARMENT: Fishtail parka in Nylon Metal. The distinctive metallic and changing sheen of Nylon Metal, one of the most versatile fabrics born of STONE ISLAND textile research is enriched with shadings created by the colors of its weft yarns. The fabric has been resin treated on the inner side to achieve a mild wind and water resistance. The finished garment undergoes an elaborate double-dyeing process that enhances the chromatic iridescence of the piece. The addition of a special agent to the dye recipe makes the garment anti-drop. Lastly, an airbrushed-applied polyurethane filament is blown by hand to select areas on the surface of the garment, creating a matte shroud with visual similarities to spider webbing.
