Stock Number Roots

[image source_type=”attachment_id” source_value=”249″ align=”left” lightbox=”true” size=”medium”] Another interesting old piece of my archive that is very interesting because is making the roots of the Stock Number method.
This is a set wich I have design about ten years ago, for the No evil collection. It’s a rare example of woman style, because I only work for woman collection that want to express new and innovative mood and I run away from those “ready made, ultra-fashion-commercial” collection for girls and woman that was often offered me.
For the shirt I have worked with a very poor “mussola” fabric, very light, often made for rough bags for the underwear, I have noble the fabrics with a was with “marseille soap” essence and soften the fabric a lot. The Skirt is inspired from a man chino trouser, made in heavy weight triple ply gabardine fabric, and I have add a corduroy insert in the front to add movement.

No eVil was the first collection here in Italy to present in 1999 the “chino trousers” for woman made with gorgeous feminine fit, and with a very chic selection of material and detail, but always rugged in their heritage because the treatments, the materials and the style.

Stock Number will make few selected womans pieces in the future, and for sure, both this rare No eVil sample will be the right startpoint.

I have designed this jacket in 2004 for the Fourface collection spring/summer 2005 made by Dynamic Jeans. Working as usual for me, I have mixed the style of a very rare denim French Utility Jacket (probably made for the Marine Nationale in the 70’s) with a typical Herringbone Twill fabric same as the U.S. Marines WWII jacket, in addition, a patch of U.S. Navy and a the original repro of the “laurel steel buttons” from the WWII denim was added.
I have bring the same button for the Five Pocket Selvadge Jeans of Stock Number collection.
This is Stock Number, a mix of vintage, new, reproductive and innovative styles: a kind of “prototype like” project.
