We have to admit, if somebody would have asked us about Stone Island 3 years ago, we would never have thought that they would come back so strong. Sure, they have always produced solid collections, but after their massive success in the 90s, or that is at least when we noticed them the most, a comeback seemed unlikely.
With the rise of technical fashion and more innovation in the market, the Italian brand was suddenly again at the front of the movement, because to be honest, they have always done that – developed their own innovative fabrics, added unseen functionality into their clothing. We have heard people say, that other high fashion houses in Italy would scoop up the entire Stone Island collection at the beginning of each season for inspiration. We are not sure any other brand can say that of their lines.
Anyways, here is now a preview of the upcoming Spring/Summer 2012 Collection. Of course the outerwear is most interesting, but also some of the fleece and knitwear pieces look very good. The colors and materials are as innovative as they could possibly be – standard Stone Island procedure.
Check out the line after the jump or alternatively, you can visit them HERE for more info.
