Stone Island’s “Ice” Line Is Fashion Tech At Its Best
Coloration-changing clothes have never really fascinated me. Nevertheless, by a buddy I discovered the piece of clothing that made me change my mind: the “Ice Knit” crewneck sweater from Italian brand Stone Island. The uniqueness of the sweater lies in the double knit construction, where the skin is made from thermo-sensitive yarn (thus changing coloration when exposed to the cold) and the inside is fabricated from pure wool.
