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.
Incorporating leisure and military styles in equal measure, the Stone Island Garment Dyed Sweat Short has long been a staple for the innovative Italian label. With the Stone Island treatment, the most simple of pieces become showcases for the label’s experimental dyeing and manufacture practices.
This cargo-style sweat short has been treated to Stone Island’s unique garment dye process, essential to the slightly worn look and feel achieved in their range of brushed cotton fleece pieces. Here in the seasonal moss colourway, these shorts also feature include in-seam side pockets, one rear pocket with hidden snap fastening, an elasticated waistband with drawstring, and one cargo pocket on the left leg adorned with the Stone Island compass patch.
