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.
The Stone Island Nylon Cap is a six-panel cap constructed from the most iconic Stone Island signature fabric: ‘Nylon Metal.’ This unique nylon trilobate fabric is treated with a special anti-drop agent, lending it its unique metallic, iridescent sheen and rendering it water-resistant. Here in the tobacco colourway, this cap also features an embroidered Stone Island compass patch affixed to the front, a curved brim, and an adjustable drawstring and toggle at the back.
Made in Italy from 100% polyamide.
