NIKELAB X STONE ISLAND
Posted on 06.09.2016
After the first edition – inaugurating the year of the Windrunner – the Stone Island tribute is an interpretation of Nike’s foremost apparel icon, using innovative fabrics and garment dyeing techniques developed by the Italian brand.
The NikeLab x Stone Island Windrunner is constructed from two different fabrics.
The yoke and concealed hood are made from Hyper Light Membrane 2L TC, a calendered 7 denier nylon weighing only 22 grams per square metre, laminated to an ultralight breathable, high performance membrane.
The body of the jacket is made of membrane 3L TC: an opaque nylon layer laminated to a breathable membrane protected by an impalpable polyester base.
The coat is water-resistant and windproof and folds away into the left pocket.
The monochrome jacket mimics the traditional Nike Windrunner colour blocking through Stone Island’s garment dyeing process.
