When seeking inspiration for the Stone Island Spring/Summer 2012 Collection, the designers looked to personnel of aircraft carriers for ideas. The collection features many items that resemble the attire of naval officers and servicemen.

The Stone Island Spring/Summer 2012 Collection boasts vintage and historical elements, such as the 1950s movement dubbed "new brutalism" and "tessellation," a term referring to geometric designs of mosaics and tiles. But the most glaring reference point for the collection is the naval-inspired outerwear. With a bounty of tailored jacket and pullovers, featuring sharp-cut lapels and fine button work, it is clear that the military uniforms worn by naval officers were a starting point for the designers.

Other standout items include zipper-laden pea coats and fitted polo tees, complemented with bold colors and intricate graphic patterns. Stats for Militia-Inspired Outerwear Trending: Older & Mild
