Stone Island & Shadow Project - New for Spring

New Ventile® Ghost jackets from Stone Island in Dark Navy and White : Ghost pieces are based on the concept of camouflage and are totally monochromatic. Originally developed in wartime, Ventile® is made in the UK from the finest 100% cotton long staple fibre. 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. Made in Italy.

From Shadow Project a Teflon® Varsity Blazer in Dark Navy : A hybrid interpretation mixing features of the classic Varsity blouson and of the formal blazer. Beginning with a Japanese polyester/polyamide substrate, garments in David-T are sewn and then simultaneously garment dyed and treated with Teflon® Fabric Protector. During the dye process(130°C), the fabric undergoes heat-induced compression, radically transforming its hand and body. The results are beautiful and wearable garments with a truly unique tactile experience; both industrial and luxurious at once. Made in Italy.

Cotton Jersey Contour Pants in Navy and Grey : Two diagonal front pockets with pull-up zip fastening, Slightly diagonal back pocket with zip fastening, Panel construction on the leg, Zip and finely ribbed cotton band on the bottom hems, Narrow ribbed cotton jersey band with internal elastic band and drawstring at the waist, Fly with hidden white button fastening on the front, Garment dyed. Made in Italy

And a modern interpretation of the classical Harrington blouson in Dark Navy. Also in DAVID-T using a Japanese polyester/polyamide substrate, sewn and then simultaneously garment dyed and treated with Teflon® Fabric Protector. Details include Raised collar with snap fastening, Slit pockets with side zip fastening and large pockets formed by the outer panel in DAVID T, fully lined with light polyester canvas; this construction makes the garment lighter to enhance breathability, Ribbed stretch jersey cuffs, Air vent under the sleeves, and Zip fastening.
