By Alex James Taylor | Fashion | 5 February 2018

When it comes to fabric innovation and treatments, Italian stalwarts Stone Island are the ones to watch. First established in 1982 by Massimo Osti, the brand has has built a loyal following based on this spirit of experimentation and design.

Expanding this legacy, the brand’s new SS18 collection sees a focus on sportswear and military uniforms, in particular the alligator camouflage of Communist-Era Polish soldiers. Here, those patterns come hand painted, photographed and re-printed in order to create a series of striking patterns.

This utilitarian theme continues through the brand’s latest addition to its iconic Marina range, introducing a new ‘Folded’ technique that sees original motifs dyed, folded, and then printed by hand – meaning that each piece is entirely unique. Elsewhere, this season’s Ghost pieces include a revolutionary multi-layer fusion technology to ensure guaranteed water resistance and breathability – perfect for those pseudo-summer London days.
