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.
