Stone Island: New arrivals for AW18

Stone Island: New arrivals for AW18

This week we’ve received the first of our AW18 Stone Island offering. The Italian brand have stepped it up once again to provide a considered transitional wardrobe for the coming months. The collection includes a series of sweats and light weight layers that will see you through milder days and colder nights. We’ve pulled a few highlights out for you.

The Stone Island Reflective Sweatshirt reaffirms the brand’s commitment to utilitarian development. The piece’s panelled body, complete with kangaroo pocket is finished with a reflective strip on each arm aiding with both visibility and aesthetic. This piece harks back to Stone Island’s late 80s and early 90s output, experimenting with more relaxed American influenced cuts as well as technical features as opposed to fully formed tech concepts. It’s simple and effective. Shop the sweatshirt here.

The hefty puffer jacket will remain a big trend for AW18, with more and more brands cashing in on the look. Potentially, it could be hard to get right with so many options available on the market, many of which have only minute differences. The solution, go with a brand whose reputation for outerwear is cult-like. We think this Garment Dyed Padded jacket by Stone Island will cut through that noise. It’s classic Stone Island. Using some of the brands more established techniques and materials, the jacket is a style that is minimal by the Italian brand’s standards. That’s not to say Stone Island’s traditional methods aren’t still space-aged The lightweight crinkle material that forms the jackets exterior is predominantly nylon and yet through the treatment processes applied feels something truly luxurious. It’s soft to the touch but retains all the durability we’ve come to expect from nylon, and with two exterior pockets, one interior pocket and a zip fastening it’s every bit as practical as you’d hope. It’s a definitely winner for AW18. Shop the jacket now. 

The Stone Island Two Pocket Overshirt is another key piece we’ve identified for the coming season. It’s a truly contemporary piece that takes influence from military shirting of old. The two chest pockets resemble those on the shirts of senior officers, traditionally used to hold maps and paperwork. Stone Island have taken that concept and hauled it into the modern world with a zip fastening that gives the overshirt the look of a layering piece, to be worn over a t-shirt or shirt, or under a slightly heavier jacket. It’s a piece that brings together an outfit without dominating it too heavily. It’s constructed from a garment dyed cotton that will age with real character and offer the comfort and freedom of movement needed in a layering item. It’s got a home in every mans wardrobe.

Often the logo your cap bears is a good indication of where you position yourself in the wider world. For many a Supreme cap was once a symbol of belonging that put them in a small group of downtown New York creatives, skaters, poets, artists and musicians. More recently a Nike cap has resonated with followers of London’s burgeoning music scene, then what does a Stone Island cap signify? We’d argue a few things, but these days it’s largely a symbol of high fashion. With Stone Island moving from strength to strength, a logo cap puts you in an elite group of fashion supremos who identify with the brand. This red Stone Island Pin Cap is perfect for it. It’s a transitional accessory that can be styled up or down while representing one of the world’s true must-have brands. Shop the cap here.
