Italian men’s fashion label Stone Island is back with its latest instalment for Spring/Summer 2022 with a new range of outerwear pieces. Named the “AGGRESSIVE GOMMATO” capsule, the collection includes three new styles that have all been fabricated with 80% cotton and 20% nylon canvas, garment dyed.
Through creating this more sustainable collection, the fabric has been unrolled and immersed into a solvent-free layer of liquid polyurethane which solidifies while also integrated into the fabric. This refreshed Stone Island craft has led to the new styles boasting an opaque appearance with a snappy and rubbery hand on the outside, while also being perfectly soft on the skin within the interior. This innovation is sure to help those avoid the ‘chaffing’ of traditionally rubberised waterproof garments.
As part of the new capsule’s development, the Fella Diagonale Gommata Anorak has a pink appearance, while an additional anti-drop agent is added to the dye bath to give a more vibrant appearance for SS22. The throw-over also features two adjustable nylon straps, with an added chest pocket with snap fastening on a nylon tape loop. The standard Stone Island lettering is also featured, along with hand pockets with a hidden zip fastening. The classic logo can be spotted on the left sleeve, complemented by the ribbed cuffs and drawstring in the bottom hem.
A hooded jacket has also been included in the capsule, with it featuring an opaque appearance with a snappy and rubbery hand on the outside. While the hood features two nylon tape adjustable straps, it also includes a double array of hand pockets, along with one rounded patch pocket with a slanting entrance and one horizontal zip fastening. Finally, a yellow shirt jacket has been featured in the trio, with a style that features one patch chest elbow pocket. Its button fastenings make this garment the most formal of the designs, while its elasticated tape at the cuffs give it the added edge it needs.
The Stone Island ”AGGRESSIVE GOMMATO” capsule is available on the official Stone Island store now, RRP £540 – £895
