Along with the introduction of several new Spring/Summer 2018 pieces, Stone Island is also revisiting the recently-revealed, limited-edition Prototype Research Series 03.
Specifically, the brand is providing a closer, more detailed look at the Prototype Research Series 03 Jumpsuit. Only 100 of the jumpsuits will be produced, with each numbered from 01 to 100. The collection emphasizes complex, forward-thinking and experimental construction and fabrics. The “SERIES 03_EXTREME COMPACTING PROCESS ON NYLON BASE” jumpsuit was created using a blend of four separate polyamide-based canvas fabrics and a “high-temperature dyeing process that colors, shrinks and compacts the materials from 0 to over 25%, re-proportioning the aesthetics thanks to Stone Island’s expertise in pattern making and to the know-how of its color laboratory.” The unique reactions to the aforementioned treatment create the striking appearance you see above. Part of the inspiration for the product came from old Soviet pilot gear.
