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.
One of the defining design principles of Italian label Stone Island’s approach is that a quest for innovation in simplicity must accompany their fabric research and development. It is the very high-performing materials for which they are known that allow them to distill pieces down to previously unseen foundational elements. By doing so, they unearth a kind of elegant simplicity.
The Stone Island Micro Reps Jacket puts this philosophy into practice. This classic field jacket is constructed from ultra-durable military spec polyester-nylon rep fabric, an incredibly tightly woven wind-resistant fabric that is rendered anti-drop by a unique finish. Here in the black colourway, the Stone Island Micro Reps Jacket exhibits the Italian label’s materials expertise its detailed panel construction, to which two slightly tilted bellows pockets with snap fastening add a slightly playful element. This piece also features a standing collar with a drawstring adjusted concealed hood constructed from resin-treated nylon; bellows hand pockets with snap closure; strap at cuffs, held by adjustable buttons; inner drawstring at the back; and hidden two-way zipper & button fastening. The piece is finished with the iconic Stone Island ‘Compass Rose’ patch attached to the left shoulder.
Made from 52% polyester, 48% polyamide/nylon.
