Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
The story of the brand that reinvented sportswear
Comprising of 644 pages, the book showcases the work of esteemed designer Carlo Rivetti, with an unwavering attention to detail and in-depth descriptions, recounting three decades of exploration and experimentation in technical outerwear, resulting in some of the most advanced garments currently available.
The book features a foreword from Carlo Rivetti as well as an essay from Italian sociologist and journalist, Francesco Morace entitled ‘Thirty Years of Stone Island and the Challenge Facing New Italian-Style Business’. The true highlight of Archivio is obviously the insight into the garments, which includes 307 of Stone Island’s most glorified and rare pieces – some of which have never left the company archives.
