With the winter season well underway, Stone Island’s Shadow Project is more relevant than ever. Most recently, the label unveiled its “6519” Shadow Project collection, and now they’re following that up with the unveiling of their SS17 capsule.
Featuring a selection of essentials imbued with a range of technical elements like extra pockets, zippers and premium materials, Shadow Project’s SS17 offering is Stone Island at its core, but testifies to the label’s direction of innovative progression. A key piece to watch out for is the denim-style jacket, which will arrive in a highly wearable hue of light blue.
Check out the full selection above, and for more from Shadow Project, check out their FW16 collection here or shop directly via the site.
Drake has been rocking a lot of Stone Island gear on his European tour, and he’s now got some flashy jewelry to match it. Drake and sought-after jeweler Ben Baller met up in Manchester to do a handoff, debuting a shiny new chain on Instagram today.
From the looks of the chain in the clip, it’s based on Italian brand Stone Island’s compass logo, and also features the words “on tour” at the bottom. Ben also gave a closer look at the back of the piece, which reads “BRINGING THAT CERTY” with Drake’s “6 God” logo just below it.
Drake seems pretty happy with how it turned out. “The size is perfect too… that is crazy,” he says in the clip. “UK Town Benny dropped off a classic,” he wrote on IG.
In the description of Baller’s post, the jeweler shared some words on he and Drake’s 9-year history, including their first meeting at an Apple Store, and a hilarious story about an on-stage slip-up in San Jose. Read his caption below.
I met @champagnepapi at the Apple Store in the Beverly center in 2008. From that day on I fucked with The Boy heavy. I was picking him up from the airport, getting him cars, trees and showing him my city like a real big homie does. #SoFarGone dropped and shit hit the fan. Then #ThankMeLater, then #TakeCare and He would take me on tour to be apart of the show giving out chains to random girls in the audience. One time at a sold out show in San Jose, Drake forgot where we were because he screamed out “LA what’s good???!!!!” And that Bay Area crowd boo’d 😭LOUD😩. It felt like that southwest commercial, Wanna get away? I back stepped off that stage dumb fast 😂In 2012 I started my family and he became the biggest superstar in the 🌎 and we lost communication… So 9 years later were here in Manchester U.K. to finally have our full circle moment. More life and more jewels to come bro
Drake is in the middle of his The Boy Meets World Tour. Earlier this week he revealed that his More Life project would be complete in one and a half to two weeks time.
