This short-form film showcases my multi-media installation during Milan Design Week 2019 and the processes that go into the creation of the latest Prototype Series.
PROTOTYPE RESEARCHSERIES 04 MANUAL FLOCKING ON NYLON METAL GRID-OVD
A LIMITED EDITION OF 100 PIECES
MANUAL FLOCKING ON NYLON METAL GRID-OVD is a fishtail parka in Nylon Metal, the iconic iridescent Stone Island fabric. The finished garment undergoes a cutting-edge artisanal flocking procedure, executed by highly specialised personnel: the parka is sprayed with a water-based adhesive and then exposed to the cotton flock. The creation of an electromagnetic field straightens the fibrils, which are attracted by the garment thanks to the uniqueness of this innovative technique. The garment then undergoes an elaborate double dyeing procedure providing highly contrasting colours between the nylon and the cotton flock. The two processes create an unrepeatable effect, different and unique on each garment. The flock will wear off naturally with use, especially on rubbing spots. The addition of a special agent to the dyeing recipe makes the garment anti-drop.
