Established in 1982 by Massimo Osti, Stone Island is a sportswear brand known for their culture of research, experimentation, function, and use. Within one year Carlo Rivetti came onto the scene, who took over the company in 1993. Stone Island redefined the common understanding of sportswear. Extreme research in fibers and textiles applied to an innovative design, while respecting the garments’ performance. Stone Island’s strength lies in its unique finishes and dyeing techniques, having created new color codes with over 60,000 different dye recipes.
