Stone Island released a new jacket in 2013 which changed colour according to the temperature. The jacket goes from a light grey to a dark grey. Thermo-sensitive materials have been used. A water- and wind-resistant polyurethane film is embedded with micro-encapsulated pigments. The molecules of the pigments change the transition of light and colour in relation to the temperature changes also. http://www.stoneisland.com/experience/en/stone-island-aw013-ice-jacket-j/
