The Stone Island Prototype Research Series is packed with cutting-edge experimental fabrics and treatments. For its latest release in the series, the brand is holding an exhibition of 50 garments made in 50 different colors — so we just had to go along and take a look.
Series 02 features a reversible jacket made from Dyneema, the strongest and most durable lightweight fibre in the world, and nylon tela, which takes the dye.
Each jacket is made with careful attention to technical details. First, the jackets are cut and sewed, then the whole thing is sealed by hand using Dyneema reinforced tapes. Before dying can begin, each jacket must rest for a week to allow the tape to fully polymerize — that means combine, to you and me.
The 100-piece limited edition collection will be on sale from the end of April at the Stone Island website.
Check out the display above, or if you’re in Milan, you can see the jackets as part of Milan’s Tortona Design Week at via Savona 54, from April 4 until April 9.
