Stone Island Spring/Summer 2016

LAB and LIFE, the two faces of Stone Island.

LAB is the incessant and continuous research into materials and treatments. The result of its never ending vocation to daring experimentation.

LIFE is its lending experience and perception. Strong aesthetics providing status to its wearer. A recognisable and impactful transversal sportswear for everyday use.

These two cores have been merged into a single idea to create the Spring/Summer 2016 collection.
References and inspiration taken from the various environments have been carefully investigated in order to create useful functions and details.

Ocean Navigation, the Navy and Uniforms have been rewritten with a modern, urban vocabulary.

The treatments modify the aspect of materials and as always make the difference.

The fabrics come to life and gain body, matte or shiny qualities, depth, shading.

Special dyes have been used to achieve metallic highlights that recreate the appearance of the bodywork of latest generation sports cars.

Iridescent surfaces have been achieved by laminating them with nylon monofilament mesh.

Two-tone effects have been created printing and plating techniques.

Modern technology has revitalised fabrics from the historic archive.

Special Features

Reflective Jacket: thousands of glass microspheres coat the surface, making the jacket retro reflective.

Heat Reactive Jacket: heat sensitive, changing colour with the increase in temperature owing to a liquid crystal coating.

Ghost Piece: pure colour, all black and white, as if it had been dipped into a tin of paint, including the Compass Rose badge.

Patch Program: the new expression of the brand. A square label with the Stone Island Compass Rose embroidered onto polo shirts, T-shirts and sweatshirts, into shirts and trousers, onto swim trunks.

Colours

Military inspiration: green, grey, forest green, air-force blue and navy.

Navy and nautical inspiration: yellow, red, white, navy, green and orange.

Urban inspiration: stucco, blue and black.
