This blog is now closed. What you are viewing is an online archive of my blog posting from 2007-2010. I do not check comments or read emails which come from this blog.
As many of you may have heard, I will be closing this blog and the forum on Jan 2. I hope that you’ve enjoyed reading this blog as much as I have enjoyed writing it over the years. I’d like to end the blog on a high note, so I bring you a special Q&A with 12th Man creator, Fabio Cavina.
We’ve all watched his tiny brand grow from a small one man operation to something that is about to burst onto the main scene. So without further ado I bring you my last post. Thanks for reading!
As a lot of you know, I designed the MO archive site, and it has been updated with some very rare footage of Massimo Osti. Including this rarely seen interview with Massimo during the iconic 1988 season. To see more footage check out massimoosti.com. Click below to read a translation of the interview.
If you haven’t seen the photography collaboration of the artists Sophie von Herzogenberg and Ralph Schulz, they’re theater series is just amazing. They get right to the heart of what makes a theater interesting, its inner backstage workings. Click below to see more photos.
Update! The MO1/Project t-shirts are now on sale! Glad to see the Osti Studio and 12th Man collaboration finally come to fruition. The shirts celebrate the works of Massimo’s graphic design. Check out them out at MO1/PROJECT.
It’s been a long time since I had a non Spw jacket in my closet, but was blown away with the quality of the Arc’teryx Veilance HS01. Click below to see more.
I’ve had this vintage Stone Island cape jacket for a while and always was curious about the origins of its unusual design. Paul, the author of the Osti article for Bright Magazine, has the same jacket and shared some insight to the mystery of the design. Click below to read more.
Finally, the English translation of the Massimo Osti article from, BRIGHT. Very special thanks to the author Paul Dezentjé for putting together the English version of the article for all the members. Click below to read the full English translation.
Preview of the Spring 2010 range of 12th man t-shirts and polos is available on their site. As always great attention to detail with many new hand dyeing and printing techniques.
Picked my sample jacket which the upcoming FNYC, Ma.Strum and Osti Archive jacket collaboration will be based off. Even if you don’t end up picking up a FNYC version, I really suggest picking up one of the standard issue versions. Best jacket I’ve seen in a while and after getting to spend the day with it, realize that finally a serious rival to SPW has emerged. Click below to see more photos.
It’s been a long time since I posted but I’m excited to announce that the limited edition FOUND_NYC X MA.STRUM X MASSIMO OSTI ARCHIVE jacket is official underway. The piece will be an exclusive for FNYC members only and be individually numbered and customized exclusively for each member. Read more about it!
A reminder for those lucky enough to be in London on Oct 23rd and 24th, the 20th Anniversary Mille Exhibit opens to the public at the RCA. Click below for the invite and more info.
Updated. Thank you again to the Ostis for taking the time to chat with all the FOUND_NYC members about Ma.Strum, their father and the Osti Studio’s up coming projects. Some great questions asked an answered, including the debunking of one of the biggest Stone Island myths of all time, the origins of the Stone Island name. Click below for full transcript.
