Rock out to the tune of your specific summer playlist with latest collection from Italian streetwear staple, Stone Island, which is not only bigger, bolder, but also industrial in strength.
Despite its perceived popularity and predominant proliferation, finding good, quality streetwear threads can still prove to be a challenge. With a tipping over the saturation point in the market, zeroing in on brands that not only look bad-ass and cool, but are also premium and perhaps even elusive proves to be the charm of the rabid rise of street style.
Answering the call of many a hyped up master of streetwear, specialty boutique, Commonwealth, houses covetable lifestyle apparel and footwear for every style profile within the highly specific gritted sense of fashion. With its firm grip on the pulse of the pervading point-of-view, as well as the independent spirit of the counter-culture, Commonwealth has formed a gravitational force amongst the experts and the interested. By taking on the demand for new and established street, fashion, and sportswear brands that influence and inspire, the collective has created an awareness for the paradigm’s diverse creative pursuits rooted in style, of course.
A proud home to many hard-to-find and of-the-moment brands and exclusive drops, Commonwealth introduces the spring/summer ’19 collection of high-end Italian men’s apparel brand, Stone Island. Rooted in a culture of research, experimentation, and function, Stone Island is a careful study and thought of fibers and textiles rendered in innovative design. By persistently pushing its ethos, the cult favorite brand has redefined the common perception of sportswear, positioning itself as a contemporary point of reference for younger generations.
The jumping point for it’s latest collection focuses on the concept of industrial strength, where function and fabrication come together in a neat evolution that still stays true to the Stone Island identity. Taking inspiration from work wear, the capsule drop features light jackets, tops, and other pertinent essentials in a spectrum of colors that came straight out of its famed color laboratory, the department responsible for combining advanced technology, experience, and human capacity to develop more than 60,000 dyes to experiment with on finished garments.
Nifty details also abound, with trusted classics like blue and gray running the gamut, as well as accents of lavender and the uber-popular fluorescent orange sprucing it up appropriately. The Industrial Strength collection takes its innovation a step further by engineering convertible collars and digital patterns to add depth that both the purists and the untapped market will find an appreciation for.
With its unapologetic penchant for function, fabric, and fit, Stone Island is that world class product that settles in quite nicely over at local shores. An adaptation that lends itself well to our sensibilities, the spring/summer offering is bound to be that necessary must-have that we will reaching for over and over again.
The Stone Island S/S ‘19 collection is exclusively available at Commonwealth with flagship locations in SM Aura, Greenbelt 5, and Rockwell. For more information, follow <@commonwealth_ph> on Instagram and Commonwealth PH on Facebook.
