For Tortona Design Week 2015 in Milan, Stone Island has curated an exhibition focused on the evolution of the brand’s experimentation with reflective fabrics. In 1992, Stone Island began its research on reflective fabrics based on the study of safety workwear clothing. This led to the idea of coating textiles with resins containing thousands of glass microspheres. This retrospective retraces the research involved through interpretations of diverse textile bases and the many experimental processes made on finished garments; it will also include pieces that never made it into production. If you’re in Milan from April 14-19, be sure to check out Stone Island’s “Reflective Research” exhibition.
