With more than 30 years at the helm of Stone Island, charismatic Italian creative director and president Carlo Rivetti has played a central role in establishing the brand as one of the fashion world’s most innovative labels. At the core of everything Stone Island does is a focus on research and development, which has resulted in technically advanced fabrics and collections that push boundaries. And this year has been no different with Rivetti overseeing some eye-catching technical additions to the label’s output: from the launch of a lightweight polypropylene denim range – an indigo line as rugged as it is lightweight – and a reflective rucksack to the color-shifting Ice Jacket. The latter’s construction from a translucent nylon material with a thermo dynamic coating means that the color changes according to the temperature, making it a standout addition to the Stone Island’s back catalog and assuring its position in Stone Island’s flagship store windows.
