Stone Island Spring Summer 2012 Preview

Sometime last month I was invited to the Stone Island showroom to preview the Spring Summer 2012 collection and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. I was particularly struck by the outerwear. The vivid colors and featherweight fabric are perfect for spring. Of course, as I browsed through the racks I was taking mental notes on how I would style the jackets. One of the best details was the option to remove the 'Stone Island' patch logo on the arm. Depending on the garment, logos can draw too much attention or take away from the garment's design. 

Stone Island's extensive dying process and advanced technology is clearly represented in these jackets. I added a video that I found on their website called, "Garment Dye" Life of a Jacket , so you can see just how intricate the whole dying process is.
