Miralles 1986: tienda exclusiva de Stone Island en Valencia
Stone Island is already a reference in contemporary fashion, even among the younger generations, and known for redefining the common concept of sportwear. A brand destined to become a symbol of extreme research in fibers and fabrics applied to an innovative design.
Stone Island is the informal clothing firm founded in 1982 by the brilliant mind of Massimo Osti, creative and intellectual director of Bologna, in Ravarino, Modena province. A year later Carlo Rivetti enters the scene when he buys 50% of the company and shortly thereafter gets the entire company along with his sister Cristina.
The beginnings of the firm begin with the study of a particular bicolor material. This was so dense that it had to be washed for a long time with pumice stone to tame its structure. The result was a fascinating wear. With this new fabric, a total of seven jackets were created, and thus the first Stone Island collection was born.stone island
His marine identity and the most recurrent words of Joseph Conrad's novels gave the brand its name.
Today, in addition to being one of the most important brands in contemporary fashion, it is known for its compass patch that is buttoned on the left side of its garments. This is a label that shows the wind rose, which mimics the currency of a military officer.
Stone Island Lab
The culture of research, experimentation and the function of use are the matrices that define the firm. Its strength also lies in the unique ability to work the finished garment, through continuous experiments with dyes and treatments that are carried out in the company's color workshop.
LAB refers to this constant research to transform and discover new materials and production techniques never before used in the clothing and fashion industry.
Novel projects have emerged from this branch: jackets made with nylon monofilament derived from water filtration technology; highly reflective or heat sensitive fabrics that change color with temperature variations; or ultralight and laminated nylon fabrics with a 100% stainless steel film used in aeronautical technology to protect on-board computers; among many others.
