Words

"During a tumultuous period in the 1960s and '70s, a new generation of architects began their careers amidst a period of profound social change, new conditions for architecture and the city and lasting changes to popular and critical forms of cultural production. First Works tells the story of this period and reassesses the conditions of architecture and the beginnings of architectural careers through a selection of projects undertaken during the '60s and '70s."

My Wiral Your Woking

01. Reversible smock with metalic hood lining, Massimo Osti Production 1997.
02. Thermojoint field jacket, Left Hand 1994.

Words

The SS12 issue of Arena Homme Plus features one of my favourite editorials in recent memory: a look back through the archives of Massimo Osti, the famed italian designer whose work for CP Company, Stone Island, Left Hand and Massimo Osti Production helped define a culture, era and movement. The editorial is shot by photographer Mel Bles and styled by Max Pearmain, while a small but excellent article by Lodovico Pignatti-Morano examining Osti's influence and legacy immediately follows it. A monograph on the designers work, which features an essay by Franco "Bifo" Beradi, is due to be published later this year.

Shot on location at the Japan Lutheran College by Kiyotaka Hatanaka, the MHL Spring-Summer '12 look book has been doing the rounds on various blogs and websites over the last few days.

Neil Bedford

—01. Inventory Issue 06: Neighborhood SS12 editorial.

Words

Not only is Neil Bedford an extremely talented photographer, he's also a pleasure to work with. We're lucky enough to have counted him among our contributors since Issue 02, and I'm proud of the work we've done together. Often challenging, and always incredibly well executed, I feel strongly that his editorials, usually produced with Stephen Mann, are an essential part of our magazine. These images go some way to illustrating that point, but for an insight into his work beyond Inventory, you really should take the time to explore his new website.
