Stone Island Liquid Reflective Jacket

Stone Island is offering some space-age outerwear. The Liquid Reflective Jacket is an updated version of the brand's original Reflective Jacket (introduced in 1991) that was inspired by work safety clothing. The Liquid Reflective is extremely high-visability, reflecting even the faintest light. The fabric has been coated with thousands of "micro glass balls," which were hand-sprayed onto the finished garments and then over dried. The handmade aspect of the process creates an uneven, liquid effect on the surface. Pics wouldn't really do the job here; watch the video and you'll get the idea.
For more on the bigger picture for Stone Island this season, a.k.a. The Shadow Project, here's more visual stimulation.
