GARMENT DYED DYNEEMA® – LIMITED EDITION
An exhibition of 50 garments made in 50 different colours
The STONE ISLAND _ Prototype Research _ Series are native limited editions. They feature garments in fabrics and/or treatments born from research and experimentation processes that have not yet been industrialized.
Dyneema® is the strongest and most durable lightweight fibre in the world. This super light yet extremely tough Dyneema® Flexible Composite fabric has increased tear, puncture, and abrasion performance.
STONE ISLAND has engineered a ready to dye version by bonding it to an exclusive performance membrane with an ultra-light nylon tela backing.
The 100 pieces for this limited edition- made of 2 sets of 50 items- are then garment dyed with 50 colour recipes in the STONE ISLAND Colour Laboratory.
It will be on sale at the end of April, exclusively on stoneisland.com.
REVERSIBLE JACKET. One side shows the Dyneema® face, the other side shows the ultra-light nylon tela which takes the dye colour as do all the other nylon components of the piece.
The garments are cut and sewn, the seams are entirely sealed by hand with Dyneema® re-enforced tapes. Before the garment dyeing procedure the jackets have to rest one week to allow the correct polymerization of the tapes.
The high level of artisanship involved in the process makes each garment unique and unrepeatable.
The first drop, PROTOTYPE RESEARCH _SERIES 01 has been launched on November 2016 featuring LASERING ON LIQUID REFLECTIVE BASE, the anorak made in highly reflective fabric, thanks to a resin coating embedding thousands of glass microspheres, is entirely hand sprayed with a resin-based colour and then oven dried.
The piece is then washed, dried and placed on a flat surface to be laser printed with the all over graphic motif.
