Stone Island Archivio ‘982-‘012 30th Anniversary Book
Published as a companion book to the recent Stone Island 30 exhibition held in Florence, Archivio is a magnificent pictorial history of the brand’s first 30 years.

The show is unlikely to come to the UK so intrepid OA members, RedMagnus and Marina , made the pilgrimage to Florence to see for themselves just how magnificent the collection was. They weren’t disappointed…
