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.
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 Slant Pocket Overshirt epitomises this approach. This piece is constructed from a slightly stretchy cotton gabardine, lending the pants unmatched comfort and durability. Here in the seasonal tobacco colorway, the Slant Pocket Overshirt features a large, diagonal bellows pocket on the chest; in-seam hand pockets; two-way front zip closure; elasticated cuffs with snap fastening; and regular collar. This garment is finished with the iconic Stone Island compass patch affixed to the left shoulder.
Made in Romania from 98% cotton, 2% elastane.
