With 2012 marking thirty years of Stone Island, the Autumn Winter collection is something of a celebration with a selection of anniversary pieces that revive and rework iconic styles throughout the brands history.
In 1982, Stone Island was founded with just one fabric in 6 different colours. Thirty years later, the exact replica from the first collection can be seen in this jacket. This exclusive fabric was inspired by a study on the technical and functional features of tarpaulins for military trucks. This cotton cloth is impregnated on both sides with contrasting pigment resin. The fabric undergoes a long lasting enzyme wash to achieve a faded appearance. The result is a wind resistant material, with a flavour of marine old weather corroded oilskin pieces. Available for Pre Order here.
