For S/S 2017, Stone Island used an artisan process with corrosive paste that makes garments unique and unrepeatable. Garments are dyed with special recipes and then faded by hand with a corrosive paste. The nbsp;Stone Island badge is attached to the pieces during the manual fading and features the same corrosion marks. Residual dye remaining on the surface highlights the architecture of the garments.
This artisan process – applied on outerwear pieces made in military-derived cotton satin, and on knits, sweatshirts and bottoms – is what creates the unique effect on each individual piece.
