The original Stone Island product was a tarpaulin two-toned material that after treated – washed with pumice stones – was made into seven jackets, named Tela Stella. The inspiration behind this garment thought up by Osti who emphasised the necessity to course of garments continues to be obvious across current Stone Island collections. Regardless of what the collection is, the detachable fabric label is Stone Island’s signature, a Compass Rose introduced like a navy badge on the garments sleeve, which displays the uniform affect on the brand. The persevering with success of Stone Island is down to its innovation, each in design and in the construction of the clothing it produces. The expertise of the clothes is obvious within the stock at Repertoire – the idea is a fusion of design with practicality, setting the development for others to follow. Repertoire are proud to be longstanding stockists of the extremely widespread menswear label.
