Nike and Italian brand Stone Island have both maintained longstanding groups of cult fans, so the special NikeLab X Stone Island collaboration is certain to provoke a whole lot of fashion and sporting cross-pollination.
This particular collection aims to bring together a sense of swagger with classic athletic style. One of the highlight pieces in this collection is the NikeLab x Stone Island Windrunner, which features a chevron and hood that are both crafted together using specially wind-resistant Mussola Gommata materials. This material consists of a bond of lightweight muslin and opaque film.
The NikeLab x Stone Island is an admirable collection because it is an exercise in careful fabric collection, and shows that it is indeed possible to find that perfect balance between a light weight, pleasing touch and stylish appearance.
