Stone Island continues its native limited edition project, to give light to research themes that due to their complexity in experimentation have not been industrialised yet. This is how unique projects with a limited number of garments come to life, created by innovative technologies with unreleased fabric and treatments.

MANUAL FLOCKING ON NYLON METAL GRID-OVD

The garment in Nylon Metal, iconic iridescent STONE ISLAND fabric undergoes a cutting-edge artisanal flocking procedure, executed by highly specialised personnel: the garment is sprayed with an adhesive substance and then exposed to the cotton flock. The creation of an electromagnetic field straightens the fibrils, which are attracted by the garment due to the uniqueness of this technique. The flocked garment is then dyed with double recipe, nylon and cotton, providing highly contrasting colours for a unique and unrepeatable effect, different on each garment. The flock will wear naturally with use, especially on rubbing points. The addition of a special agent to the dyeing recipe makes the garment anti-drop.

On sale in May.
