    Stone Island Shadow Project

    The Stone Island Shadow Project began as a discourse between Sportswear Co. owner and creative director Carlo Rivetti and the highly technical and talented ACRONYM® design team of Errolson Hugh and Michaela Sachenbacher. A platform for exploration, the Shadow project rapidly evolved into a system based program for a new generation of urban masculine apparel. with both Stone Island's incredible historical archive and it's unparalleled forward development resources as a starting point, ACRONYM® sought to conceive a project according to their strong technical and performance based roots. The result is a unique and unprecedented fusion.

    Byborre textile tech style

    About Byborre BYBORRE is an Amsterdam based textile innovation studio working on the frontiers of material development, functionality and aesthetics through engineered knits. The BYBORRE studio is committed to true textile innovation and rethinking all stages of the garment-creation process, from design to manufacturing. BYBORRE serves both as a material development and production hub, a design studio and, overall, a platform for questioning how fashions of the future can be more responsible, providing a better, sustainable product to people worldwide. BYBORRE allows brands to custom engineer meaningful and sustainable textiles. The mission is to change the game of textiles from a sourcing driven industry to a design and innovation game, while reducing the negative footprint. By giving professional creators full control over all textile variables (function, feel, aesthetics and footprint) simultaneously in one place, they can create superior products that consumers and our planet need. Without being discouraged by the hassles of a complicated supply chain with lots of legacy, designers can configure samples instantly, and have them produced at scale in Amsterdam or locally. Brands like Adidas, Descente, Rapha, Eastpak, GORE-TEX, BMW use the BYBORRE textiles today. The BYBORRE label, BYBORRE’s in-house brand, is the perfect means for showcasing the studio’s advances. It is, in a way, the first client of the BYBORRE textile studio. It is an essential aspect of the broader BYBORRE project – in other words, it’s part of something bigger. The BYBORRE label is the final step in proving the potential for uniting the manufacturing process under one roof to prevent waste and promote responsible design. The label serves as a forecast for the wider industry – a means of highlighting what could and should be possible with BYBORRE textiles. It provides suggestions for ideas, shapes, products and finishes to come. It is a playground for refining the BYBORRE ideology – a hub of imagination where all textiles are building blocks and research and development can be pushed to the final point. ±40 premium boutiques around the world sell the label, including stores such as Browns in London, Isetan in Tokyo, and Snowpeak in NY. byborre.com About Borre Akkersdijk Borre Akkersdijk is a Dutch textile designer and the co-founder and creative director of textile innovation studio BYBORRE. Born in Wamel, the Netherlands, Akkersdijk took fashion design courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009 while also working at Paris-based design and trend consultancy Studio Edelkoort. He started what became the foundation of BYBORRE in October 2010, initially consulting for brands such as Nike and Louis Vuitton before deciding to focus solely on the development of his now signature 3D knitted fabrics. In 2012, he was awarded Young Designer of the Year at the Dutch Design Awards. Research into the future of fashion and integrated technology resulted in presentations at South by Southwest, Bejing Designweek and Salone del Mobile Milano and publications in Wired magazine and Fast Company Magazine. Since then Akkersdijk has worked on building a studio filled with machines and a team of specialists from all corners of the textile industry to grow BYBORRE into what it is today.

    The ACRONYM Community Sales Thread

    If you don't come here often then you are not really understanding of the term 'community', more taking advantage of those part of it. This has been a worrying trend for some time and has eroded the spirit in which it was created. Shame really.

    Such a classy coat, shame that we'll not see them again or the myriad of other iterations, I feel an idiot for getting rid my several, would love them again....damn.

    Have to say that when I got my P30a-E that I was really rather disappointed compared to the V1.0 ds iterations, material felt unsubstantial especially given it is for 4 season use. Far less comfortable as the material has no give. Anyway, long story short, I sent them back and got a refund. My goopimade pants are far more comfortable given the similarities in fabric and a fraction of the cost but still look as good in my humblest of opinions. Needless to say I'll get the DS version if I can find any in the alpha colour here in the UK, but I'll avoid the E-nylon in the future.

    Does anyone wish to sell me their P30A-DS in Alpha to make way for their shiny new E pair? I'm looking for L or XL. I Know there are a couple of shops stateside that still have xl in stock but I really don't want to get hit with dutie & taxes bringing them back across the pond to this septic isle that is the UK.

    ^ Words from the wize there, I totally agree with this sentiment, to the point where it mirrors my own behaviour, I have been very lucky however with my last purchase through SuFu for the P30 for which I am eternally grateful to @1i1i1ii1

    Very promising so far, just about to watch ep.2 Can see how it influenced Mr.Lucas et al. Some of the other design reminds me of Sruli Recht and his transparent leather stuff.

    Varsity looks quite interesting but unsure about the collar, probably make a decision with alternate angles on that one, always wanted the one from years ago 09 While we are on the subject of years ago, here's some picks of my old Analog jacket that E created that has the lights in the hood, a billion pockets, and folds up into itself to create a pack, also has a wallet build in too. Beast of a jacket.
