We have a look on the Stone Island Pixel Reflective jacket following the opening of their Los Angeles retailer. Occupying a space over three,000 square toes in size, the brand new store is now host to numerous pieces from the Italian menswear brand’s Spring/Summer time collection. At the side of the store’s specially chosen curated collection, Stone Island showcases their Reflective Analysis 92-15 exhibition.
The L.A. based exhibit follows on from its previous residence in Milan and New York final 12 months. Commenting on the exhibition, Carlo Rivetti said: “With this venture I’m not really inquisitive about promoting clothes, however the objective is telling the story the corporate and growing the brand consciousness amongst folks in the United States./p>
The brand’s exploration of reflective technology has solely served to bolster their popularity for pioneering and constantly evolving the technicality behind their garments. Displaying a wide array of current and archived items, the exhibition focuses on Stone Island’s experimentation with textiles, categorising the gathering into related sections. Mesh reflective, antique reflective, liquid reflective and even reflective knitwear.
Stone Island’s first ever experimentation with garment-dyeing on reflective fabrics. Nylon Metal, the brand’s landmark iridescent fabric, is printed with a resin-based mostly substance encapsulating thousands of glass microspheres. The garment-dyeing procedure lends extraordinary colours to the textile base, whereas the finished Pixel Reflective print gives sturdy reflective properties, even in the weakest light.
