Did You Know? The fabric ‘nylon’ received its name from New York and London (NY-Lon) cities, where it was first manufactured. Nylon, a type of polyamide, was first used during the Second World War to make ropes and parachutes for soldiers and wasn’t available for general use. It was only after the war that polyamides entered the commercial market.
Stone Island’s third and latest Prototype Series made me somehow think of that random thought that features a compact processed nylon jumpsuit capsule – Their next step in innovative fabric production Loosely inspired by a Soviet pilot suit, they feature a material makeup consisting of four durable polyamide canvas fabrics – all with different characteristics. Combined with Stone Island’s proprietary dyeing and textile treatment process, these embody the latest innovations by the Italian sportswear company. Limited to an edition of 100, each set is numbered and will be made available at Stone Island online now (or sold out or on eBay).
