We take a look on the Stone Island Pixel Reflective jacket following the opening of their Los Angeles retailer. Occupying a space over 3,000 sq. toes in dimension, the brand new store is now host to quite a few items from the Italian menswear brand’s Spring/Summer season assortment. At the side of the store’s specifically selected curated collection, Stone Island showcases their Reflective Research 92- 15 exhibition.
The L.A. primarily based exhibit follows on from its previous house in Milan and New York final yr. Commenting on the exhibition, Carlo Rivetti stated: “With this mission I’m not really fascinated about promoting clothes, but the objective is telling the story the company and rising the model awareness amongst people within the United States. /p>
The brand’s exploration of reflective know-how has only served to bolster their status for pioneering and continuously evolving the technicality behind their garments. Displaying a big selection of present and archived pieces, the exhibition focuses on Stone Island’s experimentation with textiles, categorising the gathering into related sections. Mesh reflective, antique reflective, liquid reflective and even reflective knitwear.
Stone Island’s first ever experimentation with garment-dyeing on reflective fabrics. Nylon Metal, the brand’s landmark iridescent fabric, is printed with a resin-primarily based substance encapsulating hundreds of Stone Island Jumpers glass microspheres. The garment-dyeing procedure lends extraordinary colours to the textile base, whereas the completed Pixel Reflective print gives robust reflective properties, even within the weakest light.
