Every season, Italian label Stone Island endeavour not just to employ performance, but to redefine it. In pursuit of such ambitious aims, the label—whose research & development department has become legendary—utilize in-house research fabrics that enhance their garments across axes of function and aesthetic. In their latest collection, the luxury sportswear experimentalists explore the unique textures of new and classic materials developed in-house, drawing from each a unique tonal range through a combination of their trademark dyeing processes.
Constructed from the label’s cotton-nylon 3L performance fabric, the Stone Island Bucket Hat subtly adjusts the silhouette of the classic bucket hat, combining it with structural elements borrowed from the five-panel cap. This hat cuts a more ergonomic shape than most bucket hats thanks to its six curved panel construction. Here in the sleek black colourway, this nautical-inspired hat also features an overstitch brim, a black adjustable nylon strap at the back, and Stone Island branding: the words ‘Stone Island Marina’ printed on the side and a red Stone Island compass star embroidered on the other.
As with many Stone Island pieces, this bucket hat’s features have been created in order to maximise the potential of the material. The cotton-nylon 3L fabric is crisp and lightweight, boasting a cotton-nylon outer face coupled with a breathable, water and wind-resistant membrane and shielded by a light polyester gauze. The material’s final touch comes courtesy of the label’s special anti-drop agent.
