Complete with the limited-edition white compass badge, Stone Island’s Reflective Weave TC Jacket is now available in-store and online
An illuminating silhouette from Carlo Rivetti’s casual-luxury label, the Stone Island Reflective Weave Ripstop TC jacket is set to outshine garments in abundance this season. Having arrived in-store earlier this week, the glowing-green design has already drawn in the crowds thanks to the brand’s limited-edition white compass badge sitting to its sleeve. Of course, any well-informed Stone Island aficionado will know that the rare emblem is symbolic of the label’s exclusive, in-house materials. So, with that said, let’s take a closer look at this special number.
Crafted on home turf, the Italian-made design personifies the complex work of Stone Island’s expert production team. At the development stages, the style is cut from twisted cotton nylon ripstop fabric which then gets woven with a thin, highly reflective tape – obtained via a resin bath that embodies thousands of glass microspheres. From this point, the jacket is then dyed with Stone Island’s specialized colouring formulas which cover textile areas of the silhouette, while ensuring the reflective surface is not compromised.
In addition to this, the Reflective Weave piece is treated with an anti-drop agent, while internally, a Panno Jacquard lining takes design cues from woollen military blankets. Tonal and insulating, the detachable lining is finely crafted from a recycled wool blend and features Stone Island’s compass logo proudly imagined from jacquard processing.
With form firmly covered, function plays a big part of the jacket itself. A two-way zip closure and velcro storm flap ensure the garment grasps both versatility and security, while the incorporation of three handy pockets promise ample storage space.
Finally, the seldom-seen white compass patch works as a badge of honour for this Stone Island Reflective Weave design; celebrating the efforts of the label’s team, expertise, innovation and cutting-edge craftsmanship.
