Stone Island Shadow Project Spring Summer 19

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.

Stone Island Shadow Project Jacket SS19The 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.

Stone Island Shadow Project DPM Chine Jacket

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.

Stone Island Shadow Project Catch Pocket Tee

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.

Stone Island Spring Summer ’19

Stone Island Spring Summer ’19

We don’t mean to be too eager but, as brands begin to tease this and unveil that we think it’s fair to say that spring is officially on its way. We know what you’re thinking it’s just been Christmas! It isn’t even 2019 yet! I can’t leave the house without 4 layers on! And you’re right but, while we’ve all been busy seeing how many mince pies we can fit in our mouths and spending far too much time in the pub, it seems the fabric masterminds over at Stone Island have been continuing in their path to textile world domination as we welcome the first snippet of the Stone Island Spring Summer ’19 range to Aphrodite.

Available now both in-store and online the latest offering features plenty of adaptable layering pieces including sweatshirts, pullover hoodies, sweatpants and some lightweight jackets to keep you warm as the weather begins to slowly transition from freezing to bearable. But, you can’t say Spring Summer 19 without some Shorts, polos and graphic print t-shirts, with a handful of excellent examples of each present and correct for when daring to show some skin to the elements, isn’t met with some serious bouts of regret.

Stone Island Iridescent Tela Capsule

Stone Island Iridescent Tela Capsule

Stone Island Iridescent Tela Capsule

Even by Stone Island’s stellar standards, Autumn/Winter ’18 has been a particularly strong season: we’ve already seen classic pieces like the David-TC parka in bold new colourways; the highly tactile, velvet-feel Lamy Flock in various forms; and the eye-popping White Tiger Camo collection. Now the sportswear maestros present this highly-limited capsule of outerwear crafted from a combination of an iridescent tela with Reflex Mat reflective sections ensuring a dazzling look whether day or night.

The iridescent tela is one of the technical fabrics that Stone Island excel at: highly resistant to weather with a unique handle and saturated colour thanks to the high-pressure dyeing process. This gold number holds a difference in that is it bonded to a rose-gold iridescent film for a subtle colour change as it catches the light, lending a pearl-like sheen to the surface. Meanwhile, the Reflex Mat fabric is yet another weather-resistant fabric that is hand-enriched with glass microspheres, lending it highly reflective properties in low light while remaining matte indirect light. This is a time-consuming and labour-intensive process, but it exemplifies the brand’s commitment to fabric innovation and quality.

The pieces themselves are beautiful in their own right: the capsule includes a gilet and a pullover, funnel-neck smock, but the standout piece is the full-fat Parka. A mid-length design that boasts a plethora of pockets, sheathes and pouches, some concealed by Velcro panels, the Parka also boasts a fully-removable (and reversible!) bomber-style liner jacket with a pile-fleece facing for exceptional warmth that can be worn as a standalone piece. The level of detailing and craft on show makes this drop a highlight of the season’s offerings – earning them the Limited Edition designation that is denoted by the special white-on-black “Champagne Piece” Compass badge.

As expected of such high-calibre pieces, each is strictly limited in number. The iridescent tela capsule will be available at Aphrodite from the 4th of October at 9 AM in-store, with any remaining stock available online from 3 pm the same day.

Stone Island Shadow Project Scarabeo Down Jacket

Since 2008, Stone Island have collaborated with ACRONYM® designer and techwear visionary Errolson Hugh on the Shadow Project diffusion line, with each party leveraging their respective strengths — Stone Island’s textile development expertise and Hugh’s meticulously futuristic eye for detail — to create uniquely urban garments without compromise. Now, for their 10 Years collection, the collective has turned a decade of experience back on their archive and reworked some classic pieces in all-new fabrication, including this Down Parka in the dazzling Scarabeo fabric.

Based on the natural iridescent properties of certain species of beetle, Scarabeo is a single-layer fabric that packs in a great deal of the technological marvels that made Stone Island’s name. Combining reflective, iridescent and printed properties, the fabric is coated in microscopic glass beads which provide a dynamic range of colours in motion, upon which is then printed a graphic geometric pattern. The printed areas omit the reflected light, provide three-dimensional contrast to the surface of the fabric. The effect is subtle during the day, but really comes to life in a brilliant fashion in low-light scenarios; this is not a piece for the shy, retiring type. Not only does the fabric look good, but it is highly wearable due to its weather and stain resistant properties.

The Down Jacket itself leverages these properties perfectly, adding to their resistance with a generous down fill for exceptional warmth. One of the Shadow Project’s more conventional designs, the Down Parka boasts a detachable hood with a further detachable visor for customisable protection and looks, with a substantial moleskin lining for luxurious comfort. Featuring plenty of pockets as expected of the brand, the coat is finished with the signature black-out nylon Compass Badge to the left sleeve, which can be detached and buttoned within the jacket on a commemorative woven 10 Years label.

This stand-out piece is available in extremely limited numbers both in-store and online at Aphrodite Clothing now.

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.

The Hunter: Stone Island White Tiger Camo Collection

There is no off switch on a tiger

– German proverb

Following on from the bold military heritage of SS/18s Alligator camo, Stone Island is treating AW/18 to a tantalising drop of the White Tiger camo collection.

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.

Stone Island Set The Tone, Style and Then Some

When the temperature starts to drop, that’s when Italian sportswear maestros Stone Island really start to come into their own: the lightweight nylons and cotton twills of summer make way for more interesting fabrics from the brand’s laboratories. Case in point: this military-inspired jacket made from a Lamy Flock fabric. Starting with a plain-weave nylon fabric, the cloth is laminated to an adhesive film, through which a magnetic field is passed, which attracts a layer of nylon fibrils to build up a velvety, flocked finish to the reverse face. This process not only adds structure and dimension to the fabric, it also has the added benefit of providing extra warmth for the wearer, ideal for the chillier days.

The jacket itself is the kind of garment that Stone Island excels at: a versatile, zip-fastening layer with added detailing drawn from the brand’s vast archives of vintage militaria and sportswear; those shoulder reinforcements, for instance, are a detail you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. Coming in a rich metallic ‘Ink’ colour, the jacket is, of course, finished with the signature detachable Compass badge to the left sleeve.

If it’s a heavy duty approach you prefer for the upcoming harshest of conditions, never fear as Stone Island have brought their David TC fabric back for a double bill of military-inspired field jackets. Both Jackets, in their Mustard and Black respectively, boast two large snap-flap pockets with zipped handwarmers secluded away on the jackets, plus a shaped hood with removable melton wool liner to guarantee warmth to all upper appendages, in part thanks to the PrimaLoft® insulation material. It’s the staple dye process for the Italian maestros, with both jackets facing construction via sewing and then a garment dye. The David TC fabric is ultimately a progressive polyester. With an application of advanced heat treatment and an anti-drop finish, the fabric is given a unique design and unbeatable technical capabilities.


The Stone Island Lamy Flock Jacket and David TC Field Jackets are available in-store and online now from Aphrodite Clothing. Keep your eyes on our social media feeds for all the latest Stone Island drops for the new season as they happen.

Kind of Blue: Summer Shirts Edition

Welcome reader. Relax, take a seat, and press play on our summer shirt feature. Drink? We thought you’d never ask.

Short Sleeves

The sight of a short sleeve blue shirt strikes fear into a number of men and with justification. It can be a divisive affair, more pie guzzling than Ryan Gosling, but don’t fret we’re here to help!

For menswear, there are certain brands you can guarantee to provide a simple and effective design British sensibilities. The highest of our priced short sleeves but fitted perfectly off the peg for all body types. Small details like a contrasting top button, logo tab to pocket and stripe details to the side seams give the shirt unique embellishments to push it away from its contemporaries.
Although your token blue shirt is a light blue number, this deep blue creation from the Polo brand is a versatile offering that can work in casual and more formal designs with it’s contrasting blue offering a foil to most staple formalwear palettes. Crafted from a featherweight twill fabric, this is perfect as a summer shirt to air it all out.
Offering a perfect middle ground to the above offerings, this mid-blue oxford offering from the laurel wreath is casual wear through and through with button-down collar, box pleat and contrasting locker loop to the rear of the shirt.

Striped 

For all you men in blazers, this is the section for you. Honestly, the next time you lean those elbow patches on the bar to talk about the footsie 100, you won’t look like a Richard.

Clean cut, no-nonsense, and surprisingly not an eccentric offering from Comme De Garçons shirts. Show your fashion awareness with the Japanese brand’s best in men’s formal attire taking an eloquent approach to the men’s striped shirt.
Kings of French cool, APC bring a minimalist contemporary air to every seasonal offering from the brand, and it’s a consistent presenting in this striped shirt with a cream and blue mix in its colouring. A timeless approach to a timeless item.
This typically preppy garment might not be striped per se, but it fits our agenda and you’ve gotten this far so why should you care, this shirt is too nice to kick up a fuss.

Hawaiian 

Pigeonholing this in as it’s our only Hawaiian that fits the criteria, and it’s not really a Hawaiian at that, more a box fit, box fresh, punching above its weight, casual commando in the fashion field.

You see why we included this now, right? Relaxed boxy fit, soft fabric composition, multi-button collar options, it’s a swiss army knife in a shirt.

Chambray

The carbon fibre of the blue shirt world, the chambray is you high performing supercar in your wardrobe. More of a Tesla in Aesthetic than a Bugatti, it’s what’s under the hood that counts, and the chambray is packing some serious power.

This genuinely might be the greatest shirt ever made in the history of the greatest shirts ever made. APC has the uncanny knack of knocking every garment out of the metaphorical park of quality, and this Japanese cotton clad chambray is a year-round killer.
Dyed with indigo and stonewash to create a denim blue complexion it’s ‘Murica in a classy chambray design, embracing the denim colour to great effect on a casual and lightweight design. Pair with more denim for the authentic rawhide look.
Norse Projects have the uncanny ability to nail the a-typical stylings of any staple garment with their Scandinavian minimalist air. When we’re eventually able to 3d print objects by verbal demand, the scream of ‘Alexa, Chambray Shirt’ will yield this exact design.

Oxford

Even the word ‘Oxford’ connotes a world of regal, timely gentlemen and women oozing the aroma of books and rich mahogany, taking the bimmer out for a spin to the local shop to pick up a box of earl grey in anticipation of afternoon tea and scones.

It’s hard to offer a shirt selection without omitting Ralph Lauren, they’ve dominated the preppy shirt creation since the dawn of man (that’s a fact). Does what it says on the tin etc.
Take the previous piece on the Anton Chambray and replace the c-word with Oxford. Consistency.
To be honest, as much as I love oxford shirts, they’re just the same thing with a different logo. You cannot go wrong with the selection at hand (Unless you don’t buy any).

Overshirts

The book ender of sorts, a good overshirt (or shacket if you’re so inclined) is the layering item you need in your arsenal. Add it to a summer wardrobe for a lightweight layer and throw it under a big coat for the winter lets focus on summer for now though.

Current kings of the overshirt, Stone Island place their tech sensibilities on a metallic nylon overshirt. Fastening to the front, with a statement crinkle effect and supremo construction courtesy of the Italian maestros.
Combining the shirt and a zip with great aplomb is the dark indigo iteration in the Paul Smith zip shirt. Featuring twin patch pockets to the chest and buttoned cuffs, it’s a typically subtle affair from the rainbow man, offering the classic British fashion sensibilities with a contemporary air.
This is literally, at the fundamental of it all, a blue shirt, that fact cannot be disputed. It’s a blue shirt you wear over things, like an overshirt. Therefore it deserves being placed in our ‘kind of blue’ overshirts section. Plus it also happens to be a denim jacket, therefore, you can wear with any of the above items and it’ll look crispy.
