Stone Island Celebrates 40 Years of Future-Facing Fabrication with SS22 Collection
Beloved Italian label Stone Island has started with its 40th-anniversary celebrations with a first look at its Spring/Summer 2022 collection, presenting some of the label’s very best fabrics and material expertise with new and innovative techniques referencing the label’s famed history and storied archive.
Many of the themes from the 82/22 anniversary capsule have been modified with new fabrics. Specific standouts include outerwear from PIATTINA 82/22 which is a shiny and transparent canvas made of polyester monofilaments and flat nylon threads, used to craft a black polyester and cotton jacquard graphic. The commemorative capsule also includes sweatshirts, tees, and cotton jersey shorts which are offered with outerwear.
The forthcoming season will also be the rendition of the label’s Maria line, offering marine camouflage pieces and outerwear made from 3L GORE-TEX and recycled polyester, and the Ghost collection, which consists of a range of monochromatic garments.
One more unique fabric is the Heat Reactive Lamy, which converts from yellow to orange and light blue to bluette depending on temperature. For SS22, Stone Island has also applied its Off-Dye OVD treatment to some of the materials and cotton ripstop jackets, including an eye-catching finish through corrosive resins and over-dyeing.
Check out the shots from Stone Island’s SS22 collection below, all pieces are scheduled to arrive in the new year.
