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.
In a world where brands latch on to culture, Stone Island has influenced it
Since its inception in 1982, Stone Island has acquired a worldwide cult following for its cutting edge outerwear. Neither fashion, nor luxury, nor streetwear, Stone Island has combined the elements of all three into a unique mix that has resonated with the Milanese paninari, the British football diehards, and the North American hip-hop fans alike.
The long roster of its celebrity fans includes the Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, the rappers Drake and Travis Scott, and the football guru Pep Guardiola. But it’s not the celebrity nod that has made Stone Island a cultural cornerstone; it was the brand’s ardent everyday fans who have always appreciated its mix of performance and toughness.
At the center of Stone Island’s success lies its relentless pursuit of excellence in design, and uncompromising spirit of experimentation with fabric treatment and dyeing techniques. This product-oriented stance has secured the brand’s unique place outside of fashion’s hierarchy.
With never-before-seen images and three major texts capturing the brand's story, it will surely delight the brand's diehard fans as well as those who are new to the world of Stone Island. Available now at MENDO.
