Stone Island has been one of our favourite labels for years now, especially because they by no means followed any developments and always targeting being modern. That’s one thing rare nowadays, particularly by a small impartial company. They develop all materials themselves.
Some time again we heard that an upcoming assortment by the model was designed by Errolson from Acronym and of course we acquired excited. Fortunately we ran into him just a few weeks ago in Berlin and he advised us a bit about it and in addition showed us some samples of the Stone Island Jacket Fall assortment. The Stone Island Black Label will get to shops finish of the year and can be somewhat completely different from the same old Stone Island collection, while nonetheless being very progressive, if not much more. Smart design with a number of performance, the same ideas that made Acronym so standard are also the core values of this new assortment. Thankfully they also adjusted the cuts a bit of, because Stone Island may be very Italian of their cuts, leading to overall very brief pieces.
Keep your eyes open for this assortment, it’s going to blow you away in just a few months. Thanks for the pic to Jeff Staple.
