Remembering Massimo Osti
Company, Stone Island, Boneville and Left Hand MASSIMO OSTI. His concepts and by no means resting creativity revolutionized the fabric know-how and informal wear. He invented garment dye-ing, a process that changed the whole business at the moment, rubber flax and rubber wool, the Ice jacket (which changed colors by temperature variations), the MilleMiglia jacket and plenty of more and changed the way of promoting clothing with the CP journal.
