Menswear retailer END. has partnered with Stone Island for a capsule collection celebrating its 15th anniversary. Consisting of two pieces in an anorak and matching cargo trousers, the collaboration is scheduled to release in just a matter of days.
END. points out that the collaborative collection with Stone Island “encapsulates the Italian brand’s dedication to aesthetic values rooted in the history of practical design and their focus on pioneering technical advances in fabric development and dyeing methods.”
The pullover anorak is crafted from Membrana + Oxford 3L, a dual-layer fabric combining three-layered nylon and three-layered Oxford woven nylon, which makes the jacket both lightweight and water-resistant. The outerwear then boasts a three-dimensional effect unique to each piece as it has been subject to an intricate garment dyeing process using a dust color treatment. The back of the anorak is detailed with two military-inspired bellow pockets with magnetic closures, while Stone Island’s signature compass patch is applied on the arm to complete the design.
Complementing the anorak are the blue cargo trousers made from a combination of lightweight and Oxford woven nylon laminated with weather-resistant membranes and strengthened with polyester bases. Similar to the anorak, the pants boast a three-dimensional look that is unique to each piece. Furthermore, the bellow pockets at each leg secure using magnetic closures, as the trousers also incorporate a scaled-down version of the Stone Island compass.
