Any Stone Island aficionado worth their salt will know that Crinkle Reps is one of the brand’s most innovative and sought-after materials. Easily identifiable thanks to it wrinkle-like texture in key stress points, this iconic fabric is produced by combining lightweight nylon reps with an ultra-tight weaving construction – which is where these specified elements of tension form. Often garment dyed to intensify the depth of colour within the textile, this process also allows the colour to burst across the silhouette, spreading it and creating a marble appearance.
With 60,000 Stone Island dye recipes to choose from each season, the Crinkle Reps collection knows no bounds. With this in mind, there are some pretty special Stone Island Crinkle Reps pieces up for grabs at Aphrodite at the moment.

Perhaps you’re after something a bit bulkier? Well, good news. The Stone Island Crinkle Reps NY Down Jacket beefs up the heat factor with direct feather filling injection throughout its baffle construction. The presence of a padded hood will also ensure the utmost protection from the elements.
