The Stone Island Shadow vector continues with the project’s fourth seasonal capsule collection. Fueled by new reactions within the project’s original conceptual core, fresh manifestations of fabric, style, detail and interface emerge as the lightest, yet most comprehensive, offering thus far.
This unique trajectory begins, of course, at a unique point of origin – the inimitable constellation of research and development that is STONE ISLAND. Hidden detail and potential action lies at the heart of each and every Stone Island Shadow style. Enfolding this in a simpler, softer way, a new focus can be brought to bear on both resolution of shape and fidelity of colour. The goal is vibrancy and directness; stripping away the superfluous without sacrificing capability, and the lightness that can only be found by moving through one’s environment with zero resistance.
Modular Performance Grid, PARSEQ is the organizational framework upon which the idea is built. The name is an acronym for the 5 categories of the system: PROOF, AUGMENT, RESIST, SKIN and EQUIP.
Stone Island Shadow fabrics are carefully chosen for their balance of performance technologies and the unique aesthetic treatments and values for which Stone Island has been famous since its inception. All Stone Island Shadow fabrics work together as a part of the PARSEQ GRID, and, as such, have no attributes that hinder the functional performance of the fabric. The fabrics are all: breathable, moisture managing (DWR) and/or wicking/skin friendly), and maintainable (stable, sustainable, and easy to care for).
