STONE ISLAND STORIA
STONE ISLAND: STORIA
Since its inception in 1982, Stone Island has acquired a worldwide cult following for its cutting edge outerwear. Neither fashion, nor luxury, nor streetwear, Stone Island has combined the elements of all three into a unique mix that has resonated with Milanese paninari, British football die-hards, and North American hip-hop fans alike.
In a world where brands latch on to culture, through its almost four-decade existence, Stone Island has influenced it.
At the centre of Stone Island’s success lies its relentless pursuit of excellence in design, and uncompromising spirit of experimentation with fabric treatment and dyeing techniques. This product-oriented stance has secured the brand’s unique place outside of fashion’s hierarchy.
This monograph captures the story of Stone Island, combining its history and ethos into one source. With never-before-seen images and three major texts, it is intended for both die-hard fans of the brand and those who have recently approached the world of Stone Island.
With an introduction by Carlo Rivetti and a foreword by Angelo Flaccavento. Texts by Eugene Rabkin with contributions by Paul Gorman and Jian DeLeon. Creative Director: Simon Foxton/& Son.
