Stone Island and Shadow Project - New Items

43431 VENTILE® GHOST Jacket with detachable Down padded lining. Stone Island Ghost pieces are based on the concept of camouflage and are totally monochromatic. Their STONE ISLAND badges have also been created in special monocolour versions to blend with the garment.
This Field Jacket is made of VENTILE®, an extremely high density, 100% cotton fabric, made with the longest and purest fibres, developed in Great Britain for British fighter pilots’ overalls during the Second World War. Although uncoated and non-laminated, its high density weave, as well as the swelling properties of the fibre when wet, provide an excellent weatherproof barrier. VENTILE® is an entirely natural product that offers a unique level of comfort as well as being windproof, highly breathable and very durable. VENTILE® is still used today by the British Antarctic Survey, NATO pilots, and +8000 metre expeditions. 

Entirely heat-sealed. Two patch pockets on the front with windproof flap and hidden snap fastening. Two patch pockets on the chest with flap held by hidden snap fasteners and hidden zip fastening. Fold-away hood in raised collar. Back gussets on the shoulders. Snap-adjustable cuffs. Zip and hidden snap fastening. Detachable lining in ultra light nylon, weighing just 26 grams per metre squared, padded with down and garment dyed. Snap fastening.

The lower part of the sleeve is made of cotton jersey, with a horizontal insert in finely ribbed cotton jersey providing a stretch action to allow freedom of movement.
Other details include Finely ribbed jersey cuffs. Hidden button fastening. Slightly rounded bottom hem. Garment dyed. Made In Italy

A0408 Shadow Project Blazer in PW3 HIGH PERFORMANCE WOOL. Developed exclusively for Stone Island Shadow Project, PW3 is a weatherproof 3-ply composite wool fabric. Designed to bridge the distance between elegance and protection, it is an optimal combination of tradition and technology. The natural wool face is laminated to a waterproof, windproof, and breathable performance membrane with a synthetic backer. Liner-less 3-ply construction and taped seams result in garments that are truly contemporary in both their aesthetics and range of use. 
Raw cut edge construction. Two front pockets. One vertical chest pocket with hidden zip fastening, with a flap beside it to protect the Stone Island Shadow badge. Raised collar. Shaped sleeves with detachable fingerless gloves with loops for thumbs in technical stretch jersey.

70104 - Shadow Project STEALTH TRENCH COAT / GORE-TEX® PROSHELL 3L. With each progressing season the shape for the Stealth Coat has evolved to generate a Trench Coat with an innovative design, made in the Gore-Tex® Pro Shell 3L, a triple layered super performance fabric. The culmination of decades of development, Gore-Tex Pro Shell® is the non-plus ultra of protective fabrics. Conceived to endure the harshest of mountain conditions, Pro Shell fabrics are an amazing fusion of the seemingly mutually exclusive properties of toughness and lightness. The revolutionary Gore® Micro Grid Backer takes performance to the next level by reducing weight and bulk, and increasing abrasion resistance. Gore-Seam® Tape and GQS (Gore Quality Standard) performance tests ensure total weather protection.
The front of the garment is designed with two layers. Outer layer features Two diagonal pockets with hidden snap fastening. Button with double buttonhole to hold the left outer layer to the inner layer.
 Second inner layer with asymmetrical zip fastening. On the left side is a large chest pocket in flocked nylon with vertical zip fastening and two small bellows pockets and the Stone Island Shadow badge. Below, a patch pocket applied sideways.

Moncler V by Visvim - Autumn Winter 2011

We've just received our first delivery from the new Moncler V - Autumn Winter 2011 collection. The full collection includes outerwear, footwear, and accessories that feature fabrics and designs inspired by Visvim designer Hiroki Nakamura's visit to Tibet and surrounding areas in 2010.

The first items to arrive include a long sleeve henley sweatshirt with an asymmetric button closure placket, and a knitted wool crew neck sweater and cap - the weave and quality of the wool specifically designed to recreate the hand and weight of sweaters from the 1950's that were meant to be worn in the "elements" and features knitted patterns directly inspired by Nepalese blankets and their indigenous tribal patterns.
