Representation of Step 4 in the production process
Another debut at Salone this year was Modular Anatomy, the first instalment of what looks to be an interesting collaboration between Stone Island and young fashion designer Aitor Throup. The project involves the construction of an ostensibly traditional down jacket pieced together in small parts using separate, individually filled cushion segments.

Throup's design philosophy starts with the human form and allows the garment to evolve organically, hence the building-block approach rather than a more conventional construction using sleeves, armholes and body panels. His five-stage process was showcased at Stone Island's Milan showroom during Salone and can be viewed in our gallery, above.
If you fancy what you see, and you have a spare £995, the jacket will be available for purchase later this year at the Dover Street Market and at Stone Island's Beak Street store in London, at Barneys in New York, at L'Eclaireur in Paris and at Isetan in Tokyo.
