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.
