In 2012 Stone Island will be celebrating its 30th anniversary. Having started in 1982 with just one fabric in six colors, the brand never stopped to innovate and is today doing better than every before. During Pitti Uomo Summer 2012, they will be hosting a show and a retrospective showcasing the brand’s vast archive and key areas. Furthermore they will be releasing a book for its 30th anniversary, featuring 300 iconic images. The book will release June/July 2012.
Of course there will also be special product for the occasion. One of three specials, we can already show you today – the Reflective Knit.
“Transferring technology from fabric to yarn, the ultimate in Stone Island research. Created using a Reflective yarn, built with micro plates covered with thousands of glass microspheres enclosed in a polyester net, printed using pressure/heat sublimation to melt the fibers and get an even surface with a jersey and high performance Windstopper® liner.”
You can be sure that we will report extensively about the other garments and events around the anniversary. A further look at the reflective knit follows after the jump.
