After unveiling its full Fall/Winter 2018 collection, luxury Italian label Stone Island has now released a video looking at another of its groundbreaking textiles. Known as man-made suede, the material is the first time that garment dyeing has been used to create a fabric that resembles suede.
The textile is created through an industrial process that is applied to a non-woven, nylon microfibre and polyurethane resins. This is then coagulated, resin-coated and washed. The short video from Stone Island particularly focuses on the man-made suede parka, which comes in a mustard colourway with large Stone Island branding on the hood and the classic compass emblem on the sleeve.
Available very soon, let us know if you’ll be copping any of these new Stone Island pieces down in the comments section below. In related news, Stone Island Shadow Project’s ’10 Year Anniversary’ collection is available now on HBX.
