Since its inception in 1982, Stone Island has built one of the most loyal fan bases we’ve seen in men’s fashion—some would even consider it a cult. Recent celebrity co-signs and major collaborations have taken the brand’s popularity to new heights, but few have dedicated as much time and energy to the brand as Ollie Evans.
In a video feature by Highsnobiety, Evans gives us an inside look at his personal Stone Island archive. It includes some of the most sought-after pieces from from 1983 to present day, his most favorite being the items designed by Stone Island founder Massimo Osti.
"It’s got such depth of design and innovation and technology enraptured in it," Evans explains in the video. "You can see through seasons how one fabric or one idea will change and develop until it becomes its perfect point."
Evans, who also owns the vintage retailer Too Hot Limited, says he started buying the brand only four years ago, but has since become obsessed with its designs as well as its history, specifically its place in European sub-cultures.
