Stone Island AW1984 quilted Formula Steel 'Shimmer' Jacket.
Very early Stone Island piece that is remarkable in design and quality.
Comprised of an early iteration of the Formula Steel fabric that is woven with larger thread and heavier than later fabrics.
The Formula Steel fabric is comprised of nylon canvas that is bonded to polyurethane film on the inside, the nylon canvas is particularly hard wearing and abrasion resistant. Although this piece does not have the polyurethane lining.
The visual aspect of this fabric is its ability to ‘shimmer’ under certain lighting conditions.
