Ideas From Massimo Osti
From Bologna emerged a revolution in fashion concepts – modern textile research and experimentation that changed the course of style in the 1980s towards the more casual, sportswear look so common today. This book traces the career of visionary garment engineer and fashion designer Massimo Osti, and gives an overview of his various brands, from the early silkscreen prints with Chester Perry, to his worldwide success with C.P. Company and Stone Island. It explores the technical and stylistic innovations that have characterised his pioneering lines over the years, from studying attributes of military and work clothing, to the invention of new dyeing techniques.
