AUTUMN_WINTER ’009 - ’010
First project by Aitor Throup for Stone Island. Interpretation of the down jacket in Opaque Nylon Tela, Japanese featherweight nylon canvas, weighing just 30 grams per square metre. The generic stitch lines traditionally found in a down jacket are re-interpreted as actual structural seams, stitched using a unique edge-to-edge method which eliminates all excess stitching bulk. Each segment is an individually down-filled cushion. Only once all separate cushion segments are individually filled, finished, and numbered, is the jacket stitched together.
