SINCE THE FIRST JACKET IN 1992, THE TEXTILE MANIPULATIONS OF STONE ISLAND ON THE THEME OF LIGHT REFLECTION.
In 1992 Stone Island begins its research on reflective fabrics based on the study of safety workwear clothing. This led to the idea of coating textiles with resins containing thousands of glass microspheres.
This retrospective retraces the research of Stone Island through the evolution and the interpretations on diverse textile bases and the many experimental processes made on finished garments; also including pieces that never made it into production.
