Luxury sportswear tends not to aspire to performance. In fact, the simultaneous affirmation of a sportswear aesthetic and denial of performance is often how luxury brands have distinguished themselves from the rest of the field. This is what makes Stone Island such a welcome outlier. The Italian label has gained a reputation not just for employing performance, but for redefining it, with experimental research fabrics intended to enhance pieces in 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.
Emphasizing the label’s quality materials, the Stone Island Garment Dyed Hooded Sweat has long been a staple for the innovative Italian label. It stands as a testament to how, from wardrobe basics, the Stone Island treatment creates showcases for the label’s experimental dyeing and manufacture practices. The perfect canvas for the demonstration of Stone Island’s most recent colour experiments, the Garment Dyed Hooded Sweat has been treated to the label’s unique dyeing process, essential to the slightly worn look and feel achieved in their range of brushed cotton fleece pieces. Here in the seasonal ‘fango’ colourway, this classic hooded sweatshirt features ribbed cuffs and bottom hem; a kangaroo pouch pocket at the front; a hood with adjustable drawstring; and the Stone Island compass patch fastened to the left shoulder.
