Ideas from Massimo Osti,
published by Corraini
now available at Galleria Carla Sozzani Bookshop.
A look at one of the most influential and secretly revered names in Italian fashion history.
The book tells the story of the so-called “godfather of Sportswear”,
the man responsible for the brands Stone Island, C.P. Company and Left Hand
and inventor of the industry-shifting garment dyeing technique,
Raso Gommato and numerous other fabrics still in use today, the designer who worked from Bologna all his life,
inspired as much by the 35000 piece historical garment archive
he assembled in his studio as the unique artistic
and political ferment of the city throughout the ’70s, ’80s.
