Marking the second Frieze Art Fair in the capital of South Korea, the immersive show from the veteran Italian luxury brand not only offered a deep look at Stone Island’s catalog but also added to the contemporary art fair’s robust nature. Impressively, the exhibition marks Stone Island’s largest installation in Asia to date – featuring over 70 signature pieces throughout its entire 41-year history. Of course, recent items will appear in the mix, but the exhibitions even include pieces from the brand’s debut Spring/Summer 1982 collection.
Across the array of pieces that span for decades, the exhibition focuses on key groups like the Pure Metal Shell jackets, Prototype Research_Series and the brand’s experimentation with reflective fabrics and Ice Jackets. Alongside the display of clothes and history, the exhibition is set to feature a conversation with Stone Island’s chairman, Carlo Rivetti, on September 5, alongside an archivist event led by collector, Archie Maher, on September 6.
