STONE ISLAND IN VALENCIA

Stone Island casual wear is still regarded today as a reference even among younger generations. Stone Island is an Italian menswear brand that was founded in 1982 by the brilliant mind of Massimo Osti. This firm is destined to become a symbol of extreme research in fibers and fabrics applied to an innovative design.

THE STONE ISLAND STORY

As we have mentioned, the person behind all the history, mission, and values ​​of Stone Island is the Italian designer Massimo Osti (1944-2005). This fashion genius began his career by creating his first brand, C.P. Company in 1974, so Stone Island was originally forged as a different branch of its parent brand. He specialized in the treatment of the surface of fabrics and in the very particular techniques for which he would later become famous as dyeing. The garments were always born from a fusion between his own innovations that came to mind and the designs that he had learned from having studied different reference styles in the world of fashion: such as military clothing, workwear, and clothing sportswear, currently known as sportswear.

Since December 2020, Stone Island belongs to the Italian company Monclair linked to haute couture. Culture of research, experimentation, and function of use are the matrices that define the brand, along with its characteristic compass patch that buttons on the upper left arm sleeve. Previously, in the early 2000s, this patch consisted of only green buttons with the logo engraved around it.

THE STONE ISLAND STORY

As we have mentioned, the person behind all the history, mission, and values ​​of Stone Island is the Italian designer Massimo Osti (1944-2005). This fashion genius began his career by creating his first brand, C.P. Company in 1974, so Stone Island was originally forged as a different branch of its parent brand.

Since December 2020, Stone Island belongs to the Italian company Monclair linked to haute couture. Culture of research, experimentation, and function of use are the matrices that define the brand, along with its characteristic compass patch that buttons on the upper left arm sleeve. Previously, in the early 2000s, this patch consisted of only green buttons with the logo engraved around it.

As an example of experimentation by Stone Island, there are the Liquid Reflective jackets with a large number of glass particles, which make this garment possible to shine when subjected to light emissions.

Stone Island is known for redefining the common concept of sportswear, thanks to its link to the so-called urban subculture that surrounds the world of team ultras sports, as is the case of the Premier League in England. Since the mid-90s, this firm has been associated with the radical groups that proliferate in the beautiful sport and in different cities of the United Kingdom linked to the so-called 'vandalism' and that has been taken to the big screen, forming part of the costumes of movies like Green Street Hooligans or The Football Factory. Thanks to the influence of the well-known rapper Drake, this brand has also become very integrated into the urban context of rap, and it is common to associate some of its most characteristic pieces with this lifestyle.

THE INSPIRATION FOR STONE ISLAND

Massimo Osti was one of those people born “before his time”, and it seemed that he had done so at least 10 years ahead of his colleagues in the sector. He always liked to identify himself as a producer rather than a designer, both in his early days and in his later years with Stone Island. Osti knew how to glimpse the future success of his brand long before its birth, he knew that it was not only an idea that was interesting and salable, but that it also remained faithful to his characteristic informal clothing style.

His ideas were always inspired by the world of military and work, as well as continuous and exhaustive textile research. One of his greatest creations with Stone Island was the experimentation he achieved with a specific fabric called Tela Stella. This fabric was characterized by having a different color on each side and its main use was as a tarpaulin for trucks. It was certainly an interesting effect and Osti knew how to take advantage of such a seemingly simple garment. He came to create a collection of neither more nor less than seven jackets. The main objective of its creator was to reflect its military air, thanks to its representative symbol inspired by chevrons and military badges.

STONE ISLAND'S INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY

Each and every one of the designs that arise from the Italian firm Stone Island, transmit the passion for experimentation in the use of the best materials and their treatment of color to create casual and informal inspired clothing, with a clear urban vocation. From research over the years, different collections of t-shirts, polos, sweatshirts, sweaters, jackets, and pants have been created.

Some of them combine both the informal aspect of the typically sporty clothing with the military-style, exuding sobriety and elegance, with a minimalist touch. It is also worth highlighting the different advances in technological innovation, and its implementation in different garments, such as PrimaLoft technology, in pieces such as trench coats or jackets. This technology gives them the quality of staying dry in contact with water.

Many of the Stone Island jackets, apart from having a powerful aesthetic with that characteristic military-style, also offered improvements in terms of protection from low temperatures. Many of these garments are ideal for the cold and wind, as they are made from high-performance two-layer materials. In this way, they are capable of resisting amounts of up to 8000 mm of water on their surface, laminated with a breathable, water-repellent, and windproof inner face. In addition, the fabric of the pieces provides great comfort in use and great flexibility.

Another of the most notable inventions is the material used for the creation of many of their parkas, very popular garments among Stone Island lovers. The Italian company makes them under a special technique of down filling in light elastic nylon. In its manufacturing process, and from fabrics, chambers have been created into which the special feather filling is injected. Undoubtedly, an innovative idea of ​​Stone Island that prevents the seams from being visible and, in addition, preserves the support of these feathers within said compartments. The finest feathers remain closer to the surface of the garment, treated in a specific way to withstand any dyeing technique and enhancing the anti-fall effect.

The Italian firm Stone Island also uses different fabrics in the making of its garments, such as plush in sweatshirts, cotton knit in single-color t-shirts, wool for neck jumpers ribbed circular or turtleneck, etc. All these garments with the characteristic buttoned patch of the compass that distinguishes each of their garments.

One of Stone Island's most innovative collections was known as Ice Knit: a symbiosis that perfectly combines the love of technology and fashion. The brand shows it in a series of heat-sensitive sweaters that change color depending on the temperature. One of the greatest exponents in terms of garments that experiment with materials and their production methods. The secret of this collection lies in that very thing, its composition. Manufactured using an outer layer made with heat-sensitive yarn and an inner layer of pure wool to keep it warm.

In this way, the jumpers end up having a most curious and original appearance, practically alluding to a typical color map, especially the one made with colors such as yellow and orange. Even so, they were also available in a very interesting wide range, such as emerald green, military green, ivory, or anthracite.

Another garment with which Stone Island plays a lot with such an original and different color technique is sweatshirts. Many of them are made with a wide range of powder color treatment. It consists of a collection of colored pigments on the surface of the piece, giving it a three-dimensional effect.

What else will the Stone Island brand surprise us within the coming years? Undoubtedly, one of the most sought-after fashion firms today, thanks its mission to turn the function of clothing not only into an aesthetic issue. A strong point of reference for all the public, but especially for the younger generations, who see in Stone Island an opportunity to evolve and break new frontiers.
