The Process Behind Stone Island’ Hand Painted Tortoise Shell Jacket

The Process Behind Stone Island’ Hand Painted Tortoise Shell Jacket

974 659 David Ferretti

There’s no denying the quality that comes out of the Stone Island seasonal collections and this is yet another prime example. The garment -made in a satin weave cotton fabric of military origin- is dyed and then faded in selected areas with a corrosive paste. The bleached parts have then been hand painted with a tortoiseshell-inspired motif also appearing on the Stone Island badge on the left sleeve. This extraordinary manual process makes each piece unique and unrepeatable.
