Stone Island — Italian clothing, shoes and accessories from the world famous brand
Each of the Italian brands is gaining its audience very quickly, as their products are of incredibly high quality and original appearance. The Stone Island brand was no exception — under its auspices for more than 35 years, unique casual style clothing has been produced, which has gained incredible popularity in youth circles.
Stone Island — brand history
Stone Island clothing has been produced in Italy, in the city of Ravarino, since 1982. The founder of the brand was the designer Massimo Osti, who set himself the goal of creating iconic clothing models that no one can ever repeat. In his first collection, only a few jackets were presented, differing in non-standard design, and the next season, trousers, shirts and T-shirts already appeared. Nevertheless, jackets have remained the hallmark of this brand to this day.
In the production of Stone Island products, the most unusual and innovative materials were used — light and thin nylon, monofilament, metal threads, non-woven materials and much more. Some fabrics of this manufacturer changed their color depending on the lighting and ambient temperature.
All this made a real sensation in the fashion world and created a completely new idea of \u200b\u200bdressing. It combines many carefully thought-out details, unrivaled comfort and convenience in everyday use. Although initially the brand’s products were widely distributed only in Italy, a little later they were able to win the hearts of the British and other Europeans. Currently, the Stone Island brand is known all over the world. It has many offices and boutiques in Italian cities and European capitals.
Stone Island Patch
Absolutely all the models that the Stone Island brand represents are decorated with a brand name — a stylized image of the «wind rose». This badge is familiar to football fans around the world, as it distinguishes fans of this brand from all other fans. Meanwhile, not all people know the history of this patch.
The idea of the emergence of the «rose of the winds» was born by the designer Massimo Osti in the wake of the passion for military uniforms. To organize his work, he studied the technologies for the production of clothing for the military for a very long time and carefully, while experimenting with modern equipment. Maestro Osti was especially attracted by the uniform of military sailors — durable and windproof, providing maximum comfort in all weather conditions.
On the basis of the marine theme and the fleet, a bright and original emblem appeared — a combination of a compass and a “wind rose”. As a rule, it is fastened on two buttons on the left sleeve of the product, less often on the shoulder. This patch makes it easy to guess in the crowd of a football fan or a rebel who is a fan of a famous brand. Meanwhile, today some teenagers buy cheap imitations of the patch and sew it on their clothes to stand out from the crowd.
Stone Island — original
Since there are a huge number of unscrupulous manufacturers in the world who pass off cheap counterfeit products as original products of well-known brands, there is a high probability of acquiring a fake, especially in cases where the purchase is not made in Stone Island branded stores and boutiques.
Meanwhile, there are many ways to find out what is in front of you — the original or a cheap low-quality fake. So, Stone Island, how to distinguish a fake? Experts advise to carefully inspect the product and pay attention to the following points:
- the most important thing is the patch. It can have only three color varieties — yellow-green, completely black or black and white. As a rule, it is sewn on with buttons, and their holes are the same color as the outer and inner circles in which the «rose» is placed;
- One of the hallmarks of original Stone Island products is their consistently high quality. This also applies to materials that are strong, wear-resistant and durable, and the presence of perfectly even seams, from which threads do not stick out, and the obligatory absence of foreign chemical odors;
- on each item of this brand there is a label with information about the product and the manufacturer. On it, with the help of digital designations, the season for which the little thing is intended, its type and model, type of fabric and a special technological code are indicated. Stone Island has developed its own smartphone app that lets you scan this tag onto your phone and find out in seconds what the seller has to offer. In addition, this label should not be one — the others must indicate recommendations for washing and the country of origin. Please note that original products are produced only in the following countries: Romania, Italy, China, Indonesia, Tunisia;
- The price of any product can be specified on the official website of the manufacturer. If you are offered certain products, the price of which differs from that declared on the site by 30-40% or more, be sure that you have a cheap fake;
- the most important sign of a fake is the location of the emblem on the right. In the original production, this is absolutely not allowed;
- one more little thing that falsifiers very often forget is the “tongue” of lightning. It must have an embossed inscription — Stone Island, Lambo or YKK. If it is absent, there can be no doubts about falsification.
