Following up the 10th Anniversary of Shadow Project, Stone Island presents the latest SS19 lookbook from the Errolson Hugh led sub-line. Reflecting the warmer weather , the collection combines light fabrics and a nice array of lighter-pastel colors, my favorite being the pale green shown above.
The Spring/Summer 2019 or collection 7019 brings back features from past collections including Articulation Tunnels and Articulation Zippers, which come in new spiral and curved versions. Other innovations include the Encase Panel and new stowable Split Hood.
New fabrics include The DPM CHINÉ which uses woven rip-stop. IMPRINT NYLON is influenced by the contrast of surface and tension and, finally, the LENTICULAR JACQUARD uses perception to create a visually shifting textile.

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.
Although it’s hard to ignore the new boots and accessories that complete the looks. It seems Errolson Hugh has found his comfort zone and continues to make SISP a universe onto itself. Look for the items to drop on Stone Island’s online store and online at Farfetch.

Techwear often comes down to features and this duffle coat from Stone Island Shadow Project has all the bases covered to get you through many a winter. Even if you don’t get the opportunity to field test this piece in the harshest of conditions, you’ll quickly notice the unique wool fabric on PW3 which is a waterproof wool fabric with 3 composite layers. Without getting bogged down in details what that means is that you’ll stay warm and dry without overheating thanks to the breathable membrane in between you and the outer shell.
You can get it at Haven but it’ll set you back $1150.
