AUTUMN_WINTER ’999 - ’000
100% bronze mesh applied to a black nylon jersey base. The polyurethane adhesive provides a light protection for the mesh. A Teflon® treatment makes the garment water resistant. The metal mesh is a living material with the features of metallic materials when used untreated, and therefore they are subject to oxidation over time, losing its shine. The worn look, creases and breaks that form on the surface are features that make each garment different from the next. Detachable woolen lining with raw cut edging, attached to the outer garment using a system of ties adapted from those used in the sailing world. The Autumn Winter ’999 - ’000 collection saw the introduction of the Stone Island badge with white embroidery, for garments created using advanced research into fabrics or processes.
