Innovation, functionality and timeless aesthetics have long distinguished the work of MA.STRUM’s creator Massimo Osti. Widely acknowledged as having one of the most innovative and influential impacts on the fashion industry over the last 50 years Massimo Osti stayed true to these principles.

MA.STRUM’s new range of jackets and outerwear exemplifies this, using high-tech fabrics and technology to create quality products that provide function, comfort and style

Standard Kit Packable Sniper Jacket

The new MA.STRUM standard kit packable sniper jacket is a perfect example of the advanced fabric and technology research that the brand undertakes. This lightweight, water resistant jacket features a number of functional pockets and has a foil backed reverse to the rip-stop nylon capable of providing great heat retention. A further testament to its functionality, the jacket folds down into its own internal zip pocket to create a small carry pouch.


Stone Island

A culture of research, experimentation, function and use are the matrixes that have always defined Stone Island: the sportswear brand established in 1982, designed to become a symbol of extreme research on fibres and textiles, applied to an innovative design. Season after season, it is through the study of form and the “manipulation” of the matter that Stone Island has found its own language with the aim of establishing new boundaries in the world of garment making.

It comes as no surprise then that Stone Island’s latest additions to their ever expansive range both cover and exceed upon the expectations that the brand has built for itself.

40423 Membrana 3L TC

The new Stone Island 40423 Membrana 3L TC is a hooded jacket with a three layer lightweight performance fabric made of an opaque nylon outer face. The garment is then laminated to a breathable, water resistant membrane, protected by an indiscernible polyester base. The garment dyeing expertise, upon which Stone Islands’ reputation has been built, gives an outstanding colour to the outer face whilst simultaneously leaving the inner membranes performance features uncompromised. Finished elegantly with the addition of a special agent to the dye formula to make the piece anti-drop, culminating in style and practicality that epitomises the brands reputation.



Farah is a heritage menswear brand hailing from the U.S. in the 1920’s. It wasn’t until the 1970’s and 1980’s however that the brand gained the momentum and recognition that it is known for today. The brand became a must have label amongst the fashion savvy and was adopted by a plethora of British looks, each in their own way. The variety of ways in which the brand was adopted and worked into the numerous looks during the 80’s speaks volumes of the versatility and style which the brand carries in abundance.

The continuity of this reputation is evident today, no more so than in the new Farah Rawken jacket. Cut in a traditional British style with a premium cotton fabric, this retro piece offers both the versatility and durability that is carried by all garments sporting the iconic golden F logo. A hip length, water repellant, jacket with a PU coating on the reverse of the outer fabric; the Rawken features an airtex lining, zip fastening, two front welt pockets and an elasticated hem and cuffs.

Proven by time as the perfect brand to work into any distinct look, this jacket is a must have for spring/summer 2015.
