Stone Island

Many have tried to define STONE ISLAND in many different ways during the years due to their unique and groundbreaking techniques and experiments with different fibres, materials and dyeing processes. But there can only be on that captures the true essence and that is ofcourse the one by the people behind the brand:

A culture of research, experimentation, function and use are the matrixes that have always defined Stone Island - The iconic Italian brand from Sportswear Company (SPW) based in Ravarino and created in 1982.

Stone Island takes inspiration from the study of uniforms and work wear apart from the extreme research on fibres and textiles that is basis for their innovative design, to create timeless and innovative pieces season after season and discovering new materials and production techniques never used before in the process.

These are some of the results of Stone Island’s experimentation that is so present at all times in their philosophy:

Jackets constructed in nylon monofilament, deriving from the water filtering technology. Highly reflective or thermo-sensitive fabrics, changing colour with the variation of temperature. Featherweight polyester cloth vacuum- coated with a 100% stainless steel film used in aviation technology to protect the on-board computers. Non-woven materials, Kevlar® and polyester felt, rhomboidal nets in polyester used in the construction industry and coated in polyurethane.

Another of Stone Island’s strength lies in the ability to intervene on the finished item. This unique knowledge is the result of continuous tests on dyeing and treatments carried out in the Sportswear Company’s laboratory of colour that holds over 60.000 recipes of dyes that have been created over the years.

Stone Island keeps an historical archive where all the aggregated know how and heritage is compiled to a massive collection of majestic designs and results of endless hours of experimentation to create the one and true, iconic stone island piece.

Stone Island Shadow Project

STONE ISLAND SHADOW PROJECT began as a discourse between Sportswear Company owner and creative director Carlo Rivetti and the design team of Michaela Sachenbacher and Errolson Hugh, also known as ACRONYM®. A platform for exploration, the Shadow project rapidly evolved into a system based program for a new generation of urban masculine apparel.
With both Stone Island’s incredible historical archive, and its unparalleled forward development resources as a starting point ACRONYM® sought to conceive a project according to their strong technical and performance based roots.
The result is a unique and unprecedented fusion.

A fresh and intelligent new light cast upon the timeless interplay of form and function. Calling the project SHADOW underlines the intimate relationship and interaction between this work and the full body of the STONE ISLAND collection.

Barena Venezia

The Barena “philosophy” derives from a genuine passion for the rediscovery of the Venetian tradition and is inspired by the spirit of research that pervades you when you visit the islands of the Venice lagoon interacting with such fascinating cultures and lifestyles. The Barena collection is in fact inspired by the peculiar dress code created and used by the people who lived in these areas.

Many of the garments in the collection are the reinterpretation of unique pieces found in the museums, antique markets or books that portray old images.

Mackintosh

The Mackintosh is named after its Scottish inventor Charles Macintosh, though a letter k is added by many writers. Although the Mackintosh style of coat has become generic, a genuine Mackintosh coat should be made from rubberized or rubber laminated material. Today Mackintosh is an established global brand respected by fashion houses around the world. They create the modern day” Mac” with traditional techniques and updated technology. Every coat maker has to undergo a three-year long apprenticeship to ensure that they can construct the outerwear to Mackintosh’s specifications.

There are not that many garments that owns the qualities of being traditional, functional, durable and just fantastically good looking at the same time. Today the Japanese owned Mackintosh has updated their collection with new designs and colours but the classics will always be the same.

Anderson's

Anderson's is by all means a true family business. In 1960 in Parma, Italy Carlo Valenti sought to learn everything there was to learn about the art of belt making. So after 6 years of training in the local well known leather factory he founded Anderson's together with his wife and colleagues in 1966. The original family still runs the business but today Valenti's daughter Elisabetta and son Riccardo are leading the company forward.

Mr Valenti being an anglophile, often wore hats and suits crafted by English tailors such as Anderson & Sheppard, hence the name Anderson's which is today one of the leading manufacturers of belts in Italy and probably the oldest in Europe.

All production still takes place in the famous laboratories in Parma by some 50 leather artisans. All goods are manufactured entirely by hand using only premium leathers and fabrics. The strong heritage of the brand stems from knowledge in craftsmanship, sewing and placing values on materials, passed on by generations within the family.
