Along side last seasons re-release of the popular Seque tote, both models are fabricated from a unique fully water repellent coated nylon with fully taped seams. The Nomin and Seque are both durable, sleek and stylish while remaining incredibly functional in true Veilance form.

One of the most interesting pieces that Stone Island releases seasonally is reflective outerwear. The new Lasered Reflex Mat Reflective Blouson utilizes an exclusive fabric coating made with thousands of glass microspheres on a polyester base- enriched by high saturation colour agents. The material fuses its refraction qualities to an unique colour intensity and deepness. The coating of the fabric also makes it water and wind resistant. This season the garment is finished off with laser printed graphic patterns engraved into the surface of the coating, changing the texture and varying the intensities of reflectiveness throughout. Along with this unique fabric coating, the blouson silhouette features button fastened storm flap, vertical zip pocket, packable hood, elastic ribbed interior cuffs, and front yoke air vents.

Functional features are seen in twin press- stud pockets at each side and center front zipper fastening, while tonal leather seam trims, and signature removable brand patch finish the garment.
