Stone Island is taking over Series by Bodega for an immersive exhibition highlighting the processes and engineering behind its nylon metal fabric. The event will in turn run from September 1 through September 17.
Stone Island is best known for its assortment of technical details that go into each garment. For this, the label’s color lab calls home to a series of machines, many of which are no longer in mass production, prototypes, or simply unique to Stone Island. Each is then ultimately used to take advantage of a varying dying technique.
Invented by fashion pioneer and forward thinker Massimo Osti, Stone Island’s particular garment dying process applies color to the blank canvas of a completely finished product, as opposed to constructing a garment from materials that have already been dyed.
With its Fall 2017 collection, Stone Island is introducing its newest technique. Per the label, “The trilobate structure of the nylon yarn, with its gray weft and white ready-to-dye warp colors, forms the background for the distinctive metallic sheen, which is enriched with iridescent shadings thanks to the garment-dyeing process.” In layman’s terms, it is being referred to as nylon metal.
Again, you’ll be able to learn all about Stone Island’s new process by visiting Bodega from September 1 through September 17.
