Stone Island's "Marina" Line Puts Rip Stop Nylon on a Pastel Color Wheel
The central textile features prismatic grooves and a weather-resistant polyurethane film.
In its latest Spring/Summer 2023 drop, Stone Island continues its exploration of technically-advanced fabrications, for which the forward-minded label has come to be known for. This go-around, the brand taps its lightweight Rip Stop Prismatico textile for a series of outerwear pieces, fit for a day in the “Marina,” according to the line’s apt moniker.
Forming the basis for a reflective Stone Island Marina print, the collection’s central fabric is composed of a breathable nylon ripstop that bonds to a glossy, water and wind-resistant polyurethane film and implements fine grooves with a prismatic effect. Garment dyeing procedures highlight the materials’ performance-based characteristics, allowing the face of each design to refract light and absorb the range’s pastel color story.
Among the standouts, a light-purple, button-up coat features two enlarged side pockets, a fold-down collar and relaxed branding on the chest, while an orange iteration boasts a similar construction. A vest, composed of stretch nylon technical mesh, features details in Stone Island’s Rip Stop Prismatico nylon, and a number of bright-toned crewnecks and sweatpants make for ideal layering pieces.
