The brand named after Joseph Conrad novels established itself early on by introducing new materials and techniques like the heavily-stonewashed, tarpaulin-like fabric called Tela Stella. This quality set the standard for Stone Island moving forward. Other innovative designs such as the 'Ice Jacket', a color changing technology based on temperature thanks to liquid crystal coating and the 'Reflective Jacket', featuring a thin layer of glass to a waterproof fabric reflecting bright and dim light were groundbreaking innovations at the time. Stone Island emerged as a premium fashion brand - particularly amongst football fans. Therefore the brand is often times associated with a terrace casual style and hooliganism. In the last few years Stone Island reached a new level of popularity and is known worldwide. Collaborations with the New York skatebrand Supreme and co-signs by Drake, Travis Scott and many other influential figures has helped Stone Island reach the status it is at now.
