Basic Info Getting Started Tips

Brand: Stone Island

Founder: Massimo Osti

Director: Carlo Rivetti

Nationality:Italy

As a long-established fashion town, Italian fashion designers may not be able to say anything, but Massimo Osti is less “Bigger” than other Italian gods. The reason why he said this was because he had previously created a brand called C.P. Company because of his personal preference for tooling and military related elements.

C.P.Company

About C.P. Company has to go to another story, so this time first press the table, only its “child”. Stone Island was born in 1982, and it was originally an experimental series that was tried as a branch of the C.P. Company, and later developed into a complete independent brand due to the originality of innovation. Of course, compared to the design of cutting, style and other design, the weapon that really makes Stone Island unique is still “fabric”.

The current hot situation, saying that Stone Island is a high-end functional clothing brand may be more in line with popular knowledge, but the actual identity of it I think should be defined as “material laboratory.”

Original version Telastella

Under the family-run operation of Carlo Rivetti, Stone Island focuses on the development of unique raw material production technology with free and unrestrained creativity. At the cost of recruiting professionals to dye and reprocess fabrics, the dyeing technology is just right. In order to create a boutique with a new original style, the challenge of material and structure is constantly being challenged. In recent years, through the help of celebrities and all the big couples, Stone Island has reached the peak again. Nowadays, the online community also has “Stoney”. the new generation of young supporters, today’s garment industry keywords such as’ 90s pop elements, Urban Sportswear, really want it retroactive, also known as the “outdoor clothing godfather” Massimo Osti is inseparable relationship, regardless of cultural background about brand The technical strength of the track or pragmatic side, Stone Island’s red is not a fluke.

Things You Should Know
