Always experimenting with washes, dyes and treatments, Stone Island releases a series of pieces with a truly unmistakable look. Pigmented resins, when applied to textiles, not only colour the fabric but also coat it with a protective layer; this gives the textile a stiff shell, while leaving the other side untouched. In this collection, the treatment is applied to a malfilé cotton fleece, cotton canvas, and Stone Island’s distinct cotton tela textile. Cotton seems to offer the best basis for this special dye, as the highly absorptive fibres hold fast to the pigment and the resin smooths out any flaws.
Additionally, each item in this collection features an array of particularly useful tool pockets, both in horizontal and vertical orientations, and with snap flap fastenings. The Tela Placcata Garment Dyed BDU Jacket, Malfile Fleece Garment Dyed Tactical Crew, and Plated Malfile Fleece Garment Dyed Short feature two, large multi-pockets, patched at the front. The snap flap patch pockets are strategically placed over hidden patch pockets, with vertical side entry, and with considerable storage. The Plated Canvas Bucket Hat also features snap flap patch pockets, sized perfectly for keys, change, and many other useful objects. Discover these unique pieces, plus more from Stone Island’s seasonal collection, available now at HAVEN.
