Stone Island 30/30 Anniversary Jacket – A Closer Look

Stone Island hits the big 30 as I’m sure we’re all aware by now. As well as an incredible retrospective book from Massimo Osti, they’ve taken outerwear to new levels with this celebration jacket. All the brands key innovations brought together in one piece, this can be worn an incredible 30 different ways. So, deep breath; on the outside layer we have  waterproof ‘Raso Gommato’ — a rubberised cotton satin. On the reverse, ‘Mussola Prismatica’ — a glossy polyurethane coated cotton again, water resistant. The inner, a down filled layer is both highly reflective (glass microspheres) and able to change colour in response to temperature. The detachable liner is held in place with a rope and knot system and the XL hood can be adjusted numerous ways. Of course, this comes at a hefty price, £1,575/$2,524 to be exact, but it’s basically the closest thing we’ve got to Transformer outerwear – the decision is yours. See all its many and varied faces in the gallery. Buy over here.
