STONE ISLAND SHADOW began as a discourse between Sportswear Company owner and creative director Carlo Rivetti and the design team of Michaela Sachenbacher and Errolson Hugh, also known as ACRONYM®. A platform for exploration, the SHADOW PROJECT rapidly evolved into a system based program for a new generation of urban masculine apparel. With both STONE ISLAND’s incredible historical archive, and its unparalleled forward development resources as a starting point, ACRONYM® sought to conceive a project according to their strong technical and performance based roots.
The result is a unique and unprecedented fusion.
A fresh and intelligent new light cast upon the timeless interplay of form and function. Calling the project SHADOW underlines the intimate relationship and interaction between this work and the full body of the STONE ISLAND collection.
Sparked by experiments within the STONE ISLAND fabric laboratory, the eighth STONE ISLAND SHADOW PROJECT employs the idea of sensory camouflage to explore comfort, ease, and elegance.
Quite literally ‘softcore’, the collection is built from fluid elements wrapped around an enabling core of utility and protective technologies. Low profile, silent, and yielding; sight, sound, and touch offer no immediate indication of available readiness. 5619 is the SHADOW interface in its smoothest and stealthiest evolution. Special emphasis has been placed on the haptic qualities of the materials. Pieces are seductively soft, and pleasantly dry to the touch. Stretching and flowing, they easily conform to the wearer’s body and movements. Surface structures are predominantly matte or matte-sheen, chosen for their light-absorbing or lighttrapping characteristics. Colours are subdued and atemporal, balancing the aggressive lines of the features and details.
