Out of the Shadows: Stone Island Shadow Project
Stone Island Shadow Project Spring Summer 2019
Stone Island Shadow Project – the sub-line of the Italian brand helmed by ACRONYM’s Errolson Hugh – never disappoint when it comes to pushing the boundaries of fabric composition and technology. Take, for instance, last season’s sell-out Scarabeo Down Jacket, with its dazzling multicoloured reflective shell. For Spring / Summer 2019, the brand goes in a more subtle, but no less impressive direction, playing with the concept of camouflage in different ways.
The Lenticular Jacquard Bomber Jacket utilises a lightweight single-layer fabric that is custom-woven in Italy with contrasting coloured threads in the warp and weft, resulting in a three-dimensional, dynamic camo pattern that changes appearance depending on the light and angle. Given the brand’s utilitarian approach, it is no surprise that this fabric is also treated with water-repellency and an anti-drop agent for supreme wearability to go with its timeless silhouette.
Once again utilising a custom-woven camouflage fabric, the Pullover DPM Chiné Jacket boasts a unique Shadow Project-designed DPM (Disruptive Pattern Material), a modern iteration of camouflage that is made to reflect bustling neon city streets rather than covert ops in a hostile environment. Equipped with stacked tunnel pockets for all your daily essentials and a toggle-adjustable hood, this is yet another modern classic from techwear genius Errolson Hugh.
Rounding out the collection is a brace of t-shirts with the brand’s signature high-tech graphics and the distinctive geometric Catch Pocket to the chest, giving any of your techwear looks a finishing touch. It’s the perfect taster of what’s yet to come for the rest of the season; keep a lock on our social media channels for more as and when it drops.
