Stone Island

This label and milestone in casual wear was set up by Italian designer Massimo Osti in 1982. When digging further into the history and the techniques of Stone Island, it becomes clear why this is our fastest growing label, some have called Stone Island the “Laboratory Company” of garments - which actually gives some insight.

No label has ever pushed new innovative research into fibers and textiles in the clothing industry like this one. The brand pushes the frontier of research further forward in each new collection.
This has resulted in products that are absolutely unique in terms of the materials used and procedures adopted.

An insight into Stone Island

Nitty Gritty's Ravarino Trip



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.



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.


Harris Wharf London

Harris Wharf London is run by siblings Giulia and Aldo. It all started in London in 2009 following the opening of it's own multibrand store - Workshop - in the antiques market of Camden Passage (Islington, London).

Harris Wharf is all about clean cuts in a masculine yet very sophisticated way. The man's and woman's collections are inspired by the vibrant North-East London atmosphere while the craftsmanship comes from the (Harris Wharf London) founder's family factory in Turin (Italy) which has been in the family since 1929.
