Founded in 1982, ten years later than C.P. Company, Stone Island was envisioned by Massimo Osti as a side project to its older brother. Abiding by many of the same design ideals — intricate dying processes, technical fabrics, and unique detailing — it’s easy to see why the two labels grew to dominate not only Italian menswear, but contemporary menswear as a whole.

Although the two labels share many characteristics, they cater to different markets in many ways. While this can be chalked down to subcultural favoritism, or even a wider variety in Stone Island's collaboration history with the likes of Supreme, Nike, and New Balance, there’s still no denying the power of the label’s core collection in targeting the tastes of streetwear aficionados.

From color-changing, thermosensitive knitwear to hand-painted jackets, Stone Island’s offering always pushes boundaries in technicality and style. Since 1982 it’s earned its place as the jewel in Osti’s crown, and with the help of fellow Italian icon, Slam Jam, we’ve rounded up the best bits from the new season.
