PROTOTYPE RESEARCH_SERIES 04 PREVIEW
LIMITED EDITION – NUMBERED 01 TO 100
The Prototype Research Series are native limited editions. Unique projects of a few numbered items, made in fabrics and/or treatments born from research and experimentation processes that have not yet been industrialised.
SERIES 04_MANUAL FLOCKING ON NYLON METAL GRID-OVD is a fishtail parka in Nylon Metal, the iconic iridescent STONE ISLAND fabric.The finished garment undergoes a cutting-edge artisanal flocking procedure, executed by highly specialised personnel: the parka is sprayed with a water-based adhesive and then exposed to the cotton flock. The creation of an electromagnetic field straightens the fibrils, which are attracted by the garment thanks to the uniqueness of this innovative technique. The garment then undergoes an elaborate double dyeing procedure providing highly contrasting colours between the nylon and the cotton flock. The two processes create an unrepeatable effect, different and unique on each garment. The flock will wear off naturally with use, especially on rubbing spots. The addition of a special agent to the dyeing recipe makes the garment anti-drop.
