Renowned for their constant evolution and innovative production techniques, Stone Island are the go-to-brand for military-infused performance outerwear with a rich history and fiercely fervent fanbase.
The second drop from the Italian-brand’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection sees staple silhouettes such as jersey hoods, overshirts, down jackets and parkas infused with a new lease of life via a range of new and exciting finishes, all overseen by design legend Carlo Rivetti.
Rivetti’s impact on Italian design in general has been unparalleled, the enigmatic designer has been at the forefront of garment production technique, taking innovation to a whole new level with functional finishes using reflective crystals, thermo-reactive fabrics and anti-drop applications almost coming as standard with each Stone Island collection.
The latest drop sees a range of new innovative applications brought into the fold. Rep fabric is utilised on Down Jackets which uses a weave that is tighter, with thinner yarns in order to provide a compact wind resistant shell whilst Tortoise Shell Camo is used as a more refined substitute for the commonly used military green and khaki camo pattern.
The Stone Island Autumn/Winter 2014 collection is now available online.
