END. X STONE ISLAND
To celebrate their 15 years of existence, the British from END. have decided to join forces with a famous Italian brand : Stone Island, to create an original and high quality capsule collection. This collaboration includes cargo trousers and an jacket type anorak.
Stone Island is a brand recognized for nearly 40 years for its innovation in design, its mastery and its high technicality in the processes of deying on clothing and their manufacture.
The trousers – anorak set presented to us has been made with the exclusive Membrana + Oxford 3L fabric : a dual combo of lightweight and Oxford woven nylon, and applied to weather resistant membranes and reinforced with polyester bases. This makes these garments durable and ideal for all situations. This doesn’t mean that the aesthetic side of this collection has been forgotten, on the contrary, we discover an original and particular “metallic blue” colour. After being dyed, the articles receive a treatment called “Dust Colour” which has the function of covering the fabric with blue pigments. The goal is to give a three-dimensional effect, unusual and unique appearance to each item.
From the front, these clothes reflect a refined style. While from the reverse, the large bellow cargo pockets with magnetic closures, add a futuristic and sophisticated look to these creations.
For the trousers, the two cargo pockets are located on the back of each thigh, topped by two classic zipped back pockets. Above one of them, there is a sewn fabric patch, where the “Compass Rose” and the name of the Italian brand are transposed and embroidered on the way of a military patch : the Stone Island logo. A little detail that makes its effect, at the back of the knees, there are elasticated trims that bring even more relief and contrast to these trousers.
For the anorak, the two cargo pockets are also located at the reverse, at the bottom of the back, and the drawcord at the waist is made of elastic material. Thanks to black zips, the jacket can be partially opened at the sides. There are two removable elements : the hood and the Stone Island patch, which is attached at the top of the left sleeve with two buttons, in a larger size that on the pant. Here the Compass and the brand name are embroidered with green and yellow threads, the only different colour touches on the whole garment.
The END. capsule collection X Stone Island is a limited edition and each item is unique, due to the dyeing and processing techniques used. It will only be available at END. shop London. It’s still possible to register online for a draw that will take place on March 6th, at launches.endclothing.com until March 3rd 00:01 am.
