We have a look at the Stone Island Pixel Reflective jacket following the opening of their Los Angeles store. Occupying a space over three,000 square toes in measurement, the brand new retailer is now host to numerous items from the Italian menswear brand’s Spring/Summer assortment. In conjunction with the store’s specially chosen curated collection, Stone Island showcases their Reflective Research 92-15 exhibition.
The L.A. based exhibit follows on from its previous house in Milan and New York last year. Commenting on the exhibition, Carlo Rivetti said: “With this mission I’m not really interested by selling clothes, but the objective is telling the story the corporate and growing the model awareness among folks in the United States./p>
The brand’s exploration of reflective technology has only served to bolster their popularity for pioneering and consistently evolving the technicality behind their garments. Displaying a wide selection of current and archived items, the exhibition focuses on Stone Island’s experimentation with textiles, categorising the collection into relevant sections. Mesh reflective, antique reflective, liquid reflective and even reflective knitwear.
Stone Island’s first ever experimentation with garment-dyeing on reflective fabrics. Nylon Steel, the brand’s landmark iridescent fabric, is printed with a resin-primarily based substance encapsulating thousands of glass microspheres. The garment-dyeing procedure lends extraordinary colours to the textile base, whereas the completed Pixel Reflective print offers sturdy reflective properties, even in the weakest gentle.
