One of the most eagerly anticipated releases from the iconic Italian brand, Archivio is an illustrative retrospective of the rich, pioneering history of Stone Island. Comprising of 644 pages, the book showcases the work of esteemed designer Carlo Rivetti, with an unwavering attention to detail and in-depth descriptions, recounting three decades of exploration and experimentation in technical outerwear, resulting in some of the most advanced garments currently available.
The publication was compiled as a companion to Stone Island’s recent Stazione Leopalda 30th anniversary show and was the work of creative duo Simon Foxton and Nick Griffiths, the latter showcasing his considerable photographic skills in the book. Presented in a printed carry case and weighing a sizeable 6kg, the book features a foreword from Carlo Rivetti as well as an essay from Italian sociologist and journalist, Francesco Morace entitled ‘Thirty Years of Stone Island and the Challenge Facing New Italian-Style Business’. The true highlight of Archivio is obviously the insight into the garments, which includes 307 of Stone Island’s most glorified and rare pieces – some of which have never left the company archives.
