Inspired by a textile utilized in the brand’s Fall/Winter 2018 offering, Stone Island joins with Japanese accessories expert PORTER for a one-off capsule of “Man Made Suede” bags. Each bag is unique, utilizing Stone Island’s bespoke fabric and dying process to ensure a different result each time.

Encompassing a waist bag (approximately $480 USD), backpack (approximately $830 USD) and a duffel bag (approximately $770 USD), the collection boasts the engineered faux suede pioneered for FW18. Comprised of “22 hyper thin microfiber layers,” the fabric was provided to PORTER, which sewed the multiple colorways of each bag in Japan, before shipping them back to Italy. There, Stone Island gave each piece a bespoke dye treatment, before using lasers to zap an oversized logo on the shell.

The bags are exclusively available via Stone Island’s app, from February 14 until February 20.

PORTER has kept busy recently, debuting collaborations with BEAMS in Japan and New York’s Ovadia & Sons and Saturdays NYC

916P1 STONE ISLAND/PORTER ® MAN MADE SUEDE_GARMENT DYED The textile research and experimentation of Stone Island joins forces with Porter, the heritage Japanese bags and accessories brand. Bum bag in Man Made Suede-TC, a non-woven fabric, made with nylon microfibres and polyurethane resins, engineered through a complex industrial process leading to a mattress of 22 hyper thin microfiber layers, with the help of a polyethylene component. The material is then impregnated with resins and coagulated. The result is a substrate which is lightened through washes dissolving the polyethylene component. The material is then treated to achieve the final suede aspect. The finished folder/PC bag, made in Japan by Porter ®, is dyed by Stone Island in Italy with the specific textile dyeing and ennobling technology recently engineered by #StoneIsland. Laser print of the Stone Island Compass logo, made on the finished product. #StoneIslandPorter #ManMadeSuedeTC #GarmentDyed
