Stone Island never fail to impress us here at Aphrodite, with each season showing us entirely new and unique approaches and techniques to producing amazing pieces out outerwear that always seem to outdo the last. Spring/ Summer 2014 sees the introduction of the Lino Watro Tela Jacket; a perfect example of Stone Island’s ethos of seamlessly combining form with function.
The Lino Watro Tela Jacket takes the well known tela material but is offered in a linen based construction that is then coated with a specialist resin that provides this unique jacket with wind and light water resistance. The jacket then goes through one of Stone Island’s signature processes, dyeing, whereby the Lino Watro Tela Jacket undergoes a double dye procedure to give the unique colour tones that can be seen on the jacket.
Aside from the technicalities that the Lino Watro Tela incorporates, a fully practical and functional jacket can be seen. With two front zip down pockets, zip up placket and adjustable hood, this jacket is a perfect lightweight option for rainy but not too cold days, something England has plenty of.
A masterpiece from one of Italy’s most iconic designers, the Stone Island Lino Watro Tela Jacket is now available online and in-store here at Aphrodite 1994 for £475.00
