Spring 2015 Collection

In a continued study of modern uniforms, STONE explores the relationship between identity and conformity. A moment on a subway in Singapore created an indelible impression; nearly every person on the train was wearing some version of a uniform.

The homogenous environment served as a stimulus to create a new male uniform: a convergence of unconventional details and fabrics with simple traditional function.

 
 
 

The homogenous environment served as a stimulus to create a new male uniform: a convergence of unconventional details and fabrics with simple traditional function. Dana Mason and Bradley Dakota Smith worked closely with veteran tailors on Madison Avenue in an effort to keep high-quality production in New York City. Details in the construction were inspired by the seamless assembly of mid-century modern furniture. The unconventional obedience found within the collection distinguishes the nouveau intellectual from his peers.The mood of the collection is somber yet hopeful, somewhat institutionalized, with a healthy dose of disillusionment, evident in the muted color palette of camel, grey and navy. Comforting materials--washed wools, cashmeres, and soft leathers--allude to a childhood of privilege which was never realized. STONE seeks to resolve the conflict of establishing selfhood amid the clash between conformity and singularity.
