The MO1/PROJECT range is a tribute to the legendary Massimo Osti’s work, five years after his passing, and it is the first in a series of projects that Massimo Osti Studio will be undertaking in honour of its founder.
Artwork first created by Massimo Osti in the 70’s has been selected from the Studio’s historical archives, and four designs, originally used for posters, promotional labels and gadgets have been brought back to life.
Each design comes to life in the form of a limited edition t-shirt, individually numbered 1 – 99, produced and dyed entirely in Italy in collaboration with 12th man. Subject One is Chester Perry, Subject Two is the Mad Midnight Bomber, Subject Three is Factory and Subject Four is Flying Car, each and every one seems destined to become a classic collectors item in its own right.
More an inventor than a fashion designer, Massimo Osti has revolutionised the sportswear industry with brands such C.P. Company (formerly Chester Perry Company!!), Stone Island, Left Hand and Massimo Osti Production.
Innovation, elegance and experimentation are the terms most often used to describe the work of designer Massimo Osti who, at the end of the 1970s, changed the rules of fashion. Travelling far from the beaten path, away from classic and traditional fabrics, he invented new “future” weaves and discovered new materials commonly still in use today.
This exclusive, limited edition range is sold exclusively online at www.mo1.it and is available to purchase from 15th September 2010.
