Jacket Required is hosting a retrospective dedicated to the work of Italian fashion designer Massimo Osti, renowned for founding labels Stone Island and C.P. Company. The menswear show organiser has teamed up with the Massimo Osti Archive in Bologna, Italy and Proper magazine to host the exhibition in London.

Proper has curated a collection of key pieces “that best illustrate Massimo’s unique story,” says Jacket Required, which will be displayed in a public space in the Truman Brewery. These include archive campaign posters, graphics, photographs, garments and accessories.

In putting on the show, the company wanted to celebrate his “pioneering” work which it believes “set the tone for many of today’s most revered brands”.

“With a design philosophy based around experimentation and innovation, Osti took key military garments as a starting point and created something new using techniques he developed himself.”

The exhibition is on today until 5pm at the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London.
