Founded by Italian designer Massimo Osti in 1982 as a secondary or diffusion collection of his main C.P. Company label. Stone Island has built itself upon the foundations of never-ending research, experimentation and function. The brand has become a global leader in textiles with a remarkable history of specializing in surface treatment of fabrics and dyeing techniques. Now headed by Carlo Rivetti, the brand continues to push the boundaries of functional sportswear with each and every season.
