Outerwear label Stone Island introduced its latest 'Man Made Suede Parka' as the latest addition to its expansive Fall/Winter 2018 offerings. This piece marks a milestone for the label as it is the first-ever parka that is constructed using a coagulated suede fabric created through garment dyeing processes. To create this special material, the item has to go through an intricate industrial process and run through multiple washes. Following that is the dissolving of the jacket's polyurethane elements to result in a man-made suede fabrication.

The outerwear piece boasts mustard colors and a spotlighting component is the specially branded hood that also functions as a neck warmer. There are also a plethora of pockets implemented along with the label's signature detachable logo patchwork at its arm sleeve.
