If (like me) you were successful in obtaining an invite to the Stone Island x Flannels event at the Flannels Liverpool One store last Thursday (11th) I am sure you would have been over the moon, I know I was, in fact I may have even saw you there, actually I probably did! Now I didn’t expect it to be anything on the scale of say – Stone Island Presents Manchester (2017), after all this was only taking place in a store but I can tell you this, it certainly didn’t disappoint!
In case you didn’t know Flannels are collaborating with Stone Island to bring you three in-store events, Liverpool 11th April, Manchester 25th April and then finally Newcastle on 16th May. So where was I? Oh yeah Liverpool, last Thursday, that’s right, see you must forgive me, although it’s all coming back it’s still a little hazy. This is largely due to all the free booze that was on offer courtesy of a drinks promotion by Belgian beer brand Vedett, and what a lovely beer it was, especially as you could sup as much as you liked, this was also backed up by a bar serving spirits and mixers!
To top things off in the ambiance stakes there was also a live DJ set by Breakwave, I mean what else could you possibly want? The event itself boasted several Stone Island installations to showcase this seasons Ghost collection along with displays of various other new pieces including the beautiful multi pocket Canvass Placcato jacket, a couple of these got snapped up in an instant by a few eager punters that were in attendance!
All in all it was superb event filled with like minded individuals who were there to enjoy all things Stone Island, I met some proper sound lads and made some good contacts, the staff at Flannels were brilliant and made everyone feel really welcome (big shout going out to Phil and Dillon). You can apply to attend the Manchester and Newcastle events by tapping the link on the Flannels Facebook page, trust me its well worth the effort and I am sure you’ll love it!
