I’ll be honest, as much as I’m unlikely to buy a piece like this, I love a good opportunity to write about some of the creations that Stone Island come up with. There really isn’t anyone out there doing what they do, and I’ve always loved the way they continue to push boundaries and explore the capabilities of their garments.
For Spring/Summer ’12, Stone Island present Mussola Prismatica, a fabric formed by bonding a lightweight cotton muslin to a transparent polyurethane, giving the jacket it’s glossy look, and extremely light feel, whilst being wind and water resistant. The intense colour comes from a unique double dye process, capturing the colour of the cotton muslin base which is then amplified by the polyurethane – it’s a visual impact that you really have to see in action to appreciate.
Check out the jacket in the video above, and if you want one for yourself, you can still snag one of the remaining few at End Clothing.
