-STONE ISLAND MILAN
I just spent a few days in Milan with designer Aitor Throup, helping set up his instillation at Stone Island/C.P company showroom as part of the Milan furniture fair which started officially yesterday and runs over the weekend I think until next Tuesday. Aitor’s instillation is a visual explanation of the process he used to create his first project with Stone Island the Modular Anatomy down jacket for A/W 0809. The instillation takes you through the 5 stages of Aitor’s unique process, he starts with the human body which he takes a cast from to form one of his trademark white sculptures, a pattern is then created off of the sculpture, in the images above you can see the actual pattern that he created for the Modular Anatomy jacket its a work of art in its self, stages 3-5 show the jackets construction process in the form of the exploded hood structure I posted a few months ago. If you happen to be in Milan it is well worth popping in to see it in the flesh, as the jacket really has to be seen.
