Stone Island first began researching on a thermo-sensitive coating for fabrics: reacting to cold (Ice Jacket) and to heat (Heat Reactive) between 1988 and 1990, together with a Japanese company.

These coatings contain micro-encapsulated agents, whose molecules happen to rotate according to temperature variation. This modifies the light flow, affecting the colour of the fabric. Highly technical innovation for a clothing brand but quite the norm if that company happens to be Stone Island.

This research has leads us to a Stylish Pick for a lightweight Spring Summer Jacket that is sure to raise a few eyebrows when the temperature rises.

The Stone Island Heat Reactive Jacket in Dark Green changes to a Bright Green according to temperature changes.

The fabric of the heat reactive jacket is treated with a thermo-sensitive coating that changes colour at high temperatures. Beginning at 27 degrees the molecules within the micro- capsules of the external strata undergo a rotation modifying the light course. The color of the garment gradually begins to morph from the dark color of the surface coating to a much lighter and brighter surface color. When the garment returns to a normal temperature it recovers to its original dark coating color. Green heat reactive jacket with fixed hood, made with a unique thermo-sensitive fabric. This iconic jacket features:
