Shadow Project - New 2013 Collection Items

This tenth iteration of STONE ISLAND SHADOW PROJECT crystalizes the Shadow collection. Light. Clear. Direct. Augmented. The new interface is streamlined and void of obfuscation. Composed of enhanced versions of familiar archetypes, Spring Summer ‘013 collection (5819) travels a fast tight arc between the cardinal points of form and function. Fabrics have been chosen for their inherent tension and dynamics. Visual and physical properties are indivisible from each other, presenting a compact unified experience. Hardshell surface effect and sheen are the result of intrinsic aspects of material functionality. Lightshell and next to skin fabric composition directly affect color nuance and saturation. All combine to reveal an unambiguously modern rendition of what you see is what you get.(*)  All items available now in store and online.

New - Pure Blue Japan XX-012 Deep Indigo

The Pure Blue Japan XX-012, three years in the planning, have arrived. Cut from the same pattern as our XX-013 Mid Rise Slim Tapered Leg jeans and using PBJ's original Deep Indigo 14oz slubby Japanese selvage denim - a 100% indigo woven denim, not overdyed. The most common indigo denims are a combination of vertical indigo dyed (warp) threads and horizontal undyed or white (weft) yarns. The Deep Indigo denim however uses an indigo dyed warp and indigo dyed weft to create a solid blue indigo jean.  Prior to weaving, the threads and yarns are rope dyed so the indigo does not fully penetrate the fibers leaving the cores to remain undyed. This allows for contrast fading similar to that of traditional blue jeans but with a unique blue overcast.

The XX-012 is Made in Japan and available in sizes 26~38, Raw and One Washed, both in store and online $335:
