EXTREME COMPACTING PROCESS ON NYLON BASE
From Tuesday April 17th to Sunday April 22nd 2018
10am – 7pm
Stone Island Showroom
Via Savona 54 _ Milan_Italy
Stone Island continues it’s limited edition project, to give light to research themes that due to their complexity in experimentation have still not yet been industrialised. This is how unique projects with a limited number of garments come to life, created by innovative technologies with fabric and treatments still unreleased.
EXTREME COMPACTING PROCESS ON NYLON BASE is made of a mix of 4 polyamide based canvas fabrics, with different weights, composition and shrinkage.
The finished piece is then treated with a complex dyeing process that colours, shrinks and compacts the materials to reproportion the aesthetics thanks to Stone Island’s expertise in pattern making and to the know-how of its colour laboratory.
On sale in May.
