A culture of research, experimentation, function and use are the matrixes that have always defined Stone Island: the men-sportswear brand established in 1982, designed to become a symbol of extreme research on fibres and textiles, applied to an innovative design. Season after season, it is through the study of form and the “manipulation” of the matter that Stone Island has found its own language with the aim of establishing new boundaries in the world of garment making.
Stone Island provides functional, informal menswear in a modern and progressive way and became a symbol of innovation in design.
Extensive dealing with uniforms and workwear and their development and evolution in regards of new demands, teached Stone Island to never look at clothing by trends and reduce design by esthetic means.
Continous and utmost attention for research of processing and finishing garments, up to discovery and development of new fabrics and production technology that never before found its way into the textile industry, are the essential and unique signature of Stone Island.
Reflective and thermosensitive garments, changing colors by temperature and light are 2 of the most popular inventions of Stone Island in recent history.
Color, dying and fading are another pillar of Stone Islands doing and research. An own laboratory for color treatment made it possible to develop more than 60.000 recipes of coloration!
Over the years Stone Island was able to collect its entire knowledge and know how in an invaluable archive. This archive is the center of past, present and future of Stone Island and starting point for the constant curiosity and infinite progression of Stone Island!
