Stone Island’s ever-expanding catalog is full of genre-defining gear, and as time presses onward, their ground-breaking products become even more technical. With each new release, the company pushes the boundaries of what’s possible. It’s most recent endeavor, the Shadow Project SS020 Capsule, looks to set the bar for functional use once again.
The Italian-based brand’s Shadow Project SS020 Capsule boasts a plethora of new items for the upcoming outdoor season. Everything from technically-adept top-end garments like the Fishtail jacket, Articulated coat, and Packable Anorak make their debut alongside essential items like the Crewneck Vanise, Gradient Hoodie, and Cardigan Knit. Looking farther into the collection, the introduction of a Tunic and Compact Crewneck accent supplemental lower-body staples like the Compact Short. But what makes this collection so technically sound is the implementation of a new COMPACT treatment — compacted nylon cotton that reinforces the clothing to retain rigidity and add a subtle patina over time — and a handful of interesting fabrics known as Striped Nylon Metal, Light Nylon-R, and DPM Chine Jacquard, which offer newfound technical pleasantries not found in the company’s other garments. The Shadow Project SS020 Capsule is available now via Stone Island’s website for $220+.
