The exhibition dates, outlines the treatments, production and processes that resulted in their creation. On display is the results of Stone Island’s experimentation and innovation that has made them the leading outerwear brand on the planet.  Some of the earliest ‘archive’ jackets on display are so innovative that other brands couldn’t produce them now 30 years on.

Stone Island 30th Anniversary- Tela Stella Jacket 00571544T1Y1

20120625-154733.jpg

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.
