Stone Island ‘Industrial Strength’
In keeping with the industrial strength direction of their FW18 collection ‘Icon Imagery’, this unlikely pairing of navy and yellow pieces are almost uniform-like, and we like it a lot! From its inception, Navy has been synonymous with uniform, from marine blue to its adoption as navy blue the colour has itself included in military wear to workwear, finding itself as the go-to base colouring of high vis uniforms.
Instantly the combo colouring of the knit jumper evokes the utilitarian designs of the working uniform, emboldening the compass chest piece to aid a more physically striking aesthetic. With the modular nature of Stone Island, It’s not hard to bring two monochromatic base outfits into one singular colour blocked design with the mix of base and outer layers displayed.
Famed for their unique fabrication and garment dye process, the Lamy nylon featured here in the olive flock jacket and below in navy flock shell, is bonded to an adhesive film using a magnetic field technique. They aren’t messing around when it comes to waterproofing, and why not look as stylish as possible whilst doing so.
The ‘Tiger Pack’ with stand out all over white tiger print is perfect for layering with more subdued colourways like this overshirt in Ice. The tiger design is a continuation of last season’s camo collection. Here’s what we said:
Unadopted from an existing camouflage (unlike the designs of the Polish alligator camo) the White Tiger collection doesn’t function to conceal the wearer as it does to display Stone Island’s incredible garment printing ability. The swirling black on white camo with gold-flecked detailing takes on existing proportions of the tiger stripe camo that has been adopted across many a different nation. Symbolising an incoming drop of snowy proportions, the tiger camo is an ironically surefire way to stand out from the crowd with its beastly design.
