As it approaches its 40th anniversary as a brand, Italian outerwear legends Stone Island are set to release a retrospective book that celebrates their history, design ethos, and iconic status within the industry.
Entitled Stone Island: Storia, the book features “never-before-seen images and three major texts,” and “is intended for both die-hard fans of the brand and those who have recently approached the world of Stone Island.” The brand’s worldwide popularity among somewhat disparate groups of enthusiasts (Stone Island specifically names the Milanese upper class, British soccer fans, and North American rappers) lends immense credibility to its pursuit of perfection in construction, dyeing, and patterning, and the book should serve as a fitting tribute to the Stone Island’s ongoing legacy of excellence.
In line with Stone Island’s ultra-luxe garments, the book’s special edition features a special slipcase cover and a poster depicting the history of Stone Island’s signature compass badge. The special edition is available now for $90 exclusively via the brand’s webstore. You can check out photos and previews of the book down below.
