The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands has a new resident. Stone Island's first outing in Singapore is innovative as the brand itself. A look through the wide glass windows currently lets one gaze upon the Ghost Pieces collection and the Stone Island Shadow Project, both of which entice a closer look inside.
The shop floor is elegantly designed, with as much attention given to each furniture piece as the clothes themselves. All the wall shelves and display tables have been tailor made by Italian artisans, under the creative guidance of Marc Buhre — the architect behind the Stone Island store design seen all around the world.
Stone Island Ghost Pieces Spring Summer '21
Based on the idea of camouflage, Stone Island's SS '021 collection, titled 'Ghost Pieces', is entirely monochromatic. Even the brand's logo colours have been reinterpreted to blend in with the style. The collection draws inspiration from military silhouettes and explores the concept of reversibility on transitional garments.
The vests and jackets feature one face made of stretch wool nylon — which combines the technicality of nylon with insulating properties of wool — and the other made of resin treated nylon. A special agent is added to the dye recipe to create an anti-drop effect, making the garments water repellant. The overshirts feature stretch cotton tela instead of the stretch wool nylon.
Stone Island Shadow Project Spring Summer '21
Stone Island's 26th Shadow Project carries forth the line's mission to redefine the conception of contemporary menswear. The collection uses advanced fabric development and garment dying engineering to create garments with utility functions which support movement while creating a strong visual impact.
This season, there's a focus on integrating solutions of extreme lightness and ease with the concept of modular breathability. This has resulted in features such as elasticated shoulder inlays, convertible ‘foldable/de-foldable’ pockets, mesh pockets, and adjustable double-slider zippers with ventilation nets.
The SS '21 collections are available for purchase now at the Stone Island outlet located at #B2-18 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
