MO1 project _ collaboration with the Massimo Osti Studio

12thMan is glad to announce the release of the MO1 project. The project, which has been developed in collaboration with Massimo Osti Studio, is a tribute to Massimo Osti. After researching the historical Archive in Bologna, four artworks from the early 70′s were selected.  These graphic works, designed by Massimo Osti when he was entering the world of Fashion bringing his experience as a graphic designer, were originally conceived for Chester Perry, his first clothing line, and will now re-live in the form of four limited edition t-shirts, entirely made in italy. Each subject comes in a limited edition of 99 pieces, individually numbered, and will be available in 2 weeks at


Massimo Osti (1944 – 2005)

An inventor rather than a fashion designer, Massimo Osti has revolutionised the sportswear industry with brands such C.P. Company, Stone Island, Left Hand and Massimo Osti Production.

“Innovation, elegance, experimentation are the terms often used to describe the work of designer Massimo Osti who, at the end of the 1970s, changed the rules of fashion. He traveled off the beaten path, far from classic and traditional fabrics, inventing new, “future” weaves and discovering new materials commonly used today”
