In preparation for the spring/sumer 2018 collection Stone Island drops an inspired lookbook showing the new items. They have taken inspiration from vintage Polish military uniforms and have used alligator camouflage this season as a new print. he pattern was hand painted before being photographed and re-printed. The alligator camo pieces also come with shoulderpieces of a special light cotton-nylon rep material which undergoes a six color printing process.
Elsewhere in this collection, the brand has reworked some iconic pieces from its cult Marina line. The Marina release was developed in two separate collections – the “Folded” capsule seeing pieces dyed, folded and printed by hand to give them an original graphic motif that varies on each piece.. The “Allover” pieces are produced in a more conventional method with a range of spring-friendly colors and striped patterns reminiscent of past Marina collections.
The collection also features garments made using a nylon tela base that is then plated with a highly reflective white coating — made using thousands of glass microspheres. The capsule also sports TANK SHIELD pieces which have a multilayer fusion technology that guarantees water resistance and breathability. The key colors used throughout the collection include “Pewter,” “Ink” and “Moss.” Look for the collection to drop in the common months available at retailers including END , SSENSE and 18 Montrose.

At this point in Shadow Project’s development , the line’s identity has been solidified. Entering into it’s 19th season the label continues to further differentiate itself further from mainline Stone Island. Most notably the fall/winter collection is packed with heavy winter gear. An array of colorful down jackets and graphic patterned bombers grab most of the attention.
In terms of actual function some of the new features include ’Tilt Storage Pockets’, a seperated series of sloped pockets using a single zipper that runs around the entire piece. Also shown are elasticated ‘Articulation Tunnels’, that allow the wearer to adjust the garment’s shape.

This piece is one of the best I’ve seen from Stone Island this scene. An awesome olive color way that’s the result of a garment dyeing process . The parka comes in a performance fabric made up of an outer opaque light nylon layer laminated to a very fine breathable, water and wind resistant inner membrane. The seams have been thermo-taped for optimal water resistance. Along with the removable storm hood and zip fastening system this is a strong choice for even heavy-duty rainfall. It’s available over at HAVEN.
With warmer temps right around the corner Stone Island drops this SS17 video showcasing their newest offerings. With an emphasis on color, material and functionality the visual shows off the best pieces in motion.
