With the online release of their FW18 lookbook, Stone Island are celebrating an entire decade of the Shadow Project, the brain child of creative director Carlo Rivetti and the design team of Michaela Sachenbacher and Errolson Hugh, also known as ACRONYM, conceived to provide a perfect platform for further innovation.
6919 – the 21st collection since the line’s inception all those years ago – continues in the trend of its predecessors, through its seamless re-imagining of the boundaries between technical and modern streetwear. In realising this, Stone Island’s peerless heritage in research and design has been fused with the creative direction of Hugh and his team at ACRONYM for a collection of hybrid designs that span exploration, development, and expression.
Always find yourself digging through your pockets in search of that one thing you know is in there – somewhere? Well listen up, this collection specialises in re-writing the line of pockets generally, and not only will the new Flank and Drop pocket serve to speed up the retrieval of objects, but the newly engineered Strata Pocket that lines a number of knitwear pieces will also provide valuable extra storage space. On to the fabrics and this collection sees a triumphant return for iridescence with SCARABEO, while special ten year commemorative icons replace the standard labelling for this season only. This screams future collectible.
