cp company history by massimo osti

Massimo Osti  was an Italian garment engineer and fashion designer, most famous as the founder of the apparel brands Stone Island and C.P. Company. Osti’s products were a mix of his own innovations and design ideas he got from studying military clothing, work-, and sportswear,  was born and raised in Bologna, Italy. He became a graphic designer and worked in the advertising business. His career in the fashion industry began in the early 1970s, when he designed a T-shirt collection featuring placed prints. He was the first to use new techniques like the four-color process and silkscreen which are used for producing T-shirt. Following the success of this first T-shirt collection, he accepted the offer to design a complete Men’s collection and became an equity partner in the company he would name ‘Chester Perry’ (later renamed the ‘C.P. Company’).

During this period, Osti laid the foundations for a creative philosophy entirely based on experimentation. The first innovation he would be responsible for in the clothing industry was garment dyeing, a process that completely revolutionized the field. It was based upon the concept of different materials in finished garments reacting differently to the same dye bath. Osti discovered that garment dyeing creates interesting tone-on-tone effects. This particular dyeing technique became typical for Osti’s C.P. Company. In 1981, he launched “Boneville”, a new brand alongside the existing CP Company and CP Company Baby collections.

Ongoing research on finishing techniques and materials led to yet another clothing line in 1982: Stone Island. The first collection was made entirely from a revolutionary new fabric that inspired from the tarps used by truck drivers. The ‘used’ look of this highly resistant, two-tone, reversible fabric was obtained through stone washing. This new collection was so successful that it sold out at every location within 10 days.

In 1984, Osti relinquished his shares of CP Company to GFT, but stayed on as president. He and his team devoted themselves to product development and communication strategies for the company. In 1985, he became the editor of CP Magazine, an extra-large format catalog/magazine that was sold at newspaper stands. It featured photographs of every garment in the CP Company collections and visualized the C.P. lifestyle perfectly. A circulation of 40,000 copies per collection proved that this unusual advertising tool was indeed effective. It started a trend that would later be followed by many other companies in the industry.

1987 was an important year in Osti’s career. He invented and presented Rubber Flax and Rubber Wool – linen and wool with a thin, rubber coating. The rubber made the materials waterproof, improved their resistance and added a totally new look and feel to the garments. In the same year Osti experimented with brushed combed wool for the first time. Today all mills use this procedure for processing woolen textiles, the same process Osti invented in 1987. The year also saw the birth of the color changing Ice Jacket. In collaboration with ITS, Osti employed state-of-the-art technological research to create this new fabric which changed color by temperature variations. That same year, his constant commitment to experimentation earned Massimo Osti an invitation to represent the Italian clothing industry at an event commemorating the 750th anniversary of Berlin’s founding, the 150th anniversary of textile manufacturing and his own 15th year in the business. For the occasion, an exhibit was held inside the Reichstag building in Berlin.In 1988, Massimo Osti’s designs developed a new means of communication with the public through the CP Company sponsorship of the Mille Miglia race. The company also showed its support of the Rainforest Foundation, the foundation spearheaded by Sting and Raoni, chief of the Kayapo tribe in Amazonia, whose purpose was to raise worldwide awareness of deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest.

1991 marked the opening of a CP store in New York’s historical Flatiron Building, plus the launch of yet another iconic garment within the Stone Island line: the Reflective Jacket. This jacket was made from an innovative material, which was the fruit of technological research conducted in Japan. The material combined waterproof fabric with a very thin layer of glass microspheres, which reflected even the weakest light sources with astonishing effectiveness.

In 1993, a partnership with Allegri gave rise to Left Hand. This new brand was characterized by another exclusive material, a non-woven fabric made from pressed polyester and nylon fibers which, like felt, could be used with raw edge stitching. The following year, Osti founded Massimo Osti Production, a company that would reap the benefits of the experience and successes accrued from 20 years’ worth of formal and technical innovations. In 1995, the ST 95 line was launched and in 1996, Osti began a collaboration with Superga, which consisted in designing a collection of image-defining garments.

Just two years later in 1998, a new company was founded to produce and distribute the OM Project brand, the collaboration with the Frattini Group. This new line of clothing would also be characterized by the use of innovative fabrics:

  • Electric-j – a highly resistant material made of polyester and copper fibers
  • Cool Cotton – whose natural look is derived from its cotton component while its other component
  • Cool max – a hollow fiber that absorbs bodily moisture and wicks it outwards
  • Mag Defender – a canvas made of polyester and carbon fibers whose highly resistant weave shields its wearer from magnetic fields
  • Steel – an “urban armor” featuring a nylon canvas which is woven with twisted cotton and stainless steel, making it highly resistant to cuts and tears.

In 1999, Massimo Osti began the collaboration with Dockers Europe to design a new line of technical pants called Equipment for Legs. Of the technical materials used in this collection, a special blend of Kevlar stood out in particular; its increased softness and functionality made it appropriate to its application in garment production.

Among Osti’s last projects was the ICD line. Created in 2000 thanks to a collaboration with Levi’s, it offered a vast array of high performance technical outerwear. This collection was then supplemented by the ICD+ line which, thanks to an agreement with Philips, featured outwear garments which came equipped with a cell phone, mp3 player, and accompanying headphones and microphone which were all wired to the garment itself. It was the world’s first commercial example of wearable technology.

Massimo Osti died in 2005 and his legacy lives on today through the Massimo Osti Archive, a textile archive which includes 5,000 garments and over 50,000 fabric samples from approximately 300 textile mills and garment finishing companies from around the world.

By Megan Munro ( Complex mag Uk)

Oakley’s new “One Obsession” campaign is an initiative to live their obsession, aiming to invite and inspire people to join the brand’s global network of athlete ambassadors in living out their passions. Oakley pretty much has the sports eyewear game on lock, with skiing, skating, cycling, and countless other sports all turning to the brand for their eyewear needs.

Oakley has more than 450 athletes on their roster, including names like Eric Koston, Gabriel Medina, Mark Cavendish, and Matt Kemp, who all live out their obsessions in their daily lives with Oakley, and the movement aims to encourage fans to share and celebrate their physical places of obsession around the world. It could be a mountain peak, a suburban garage, or a public handrail.

Oakley will reward the ‪#‎LiveYours‬ contributions with surprise experiences and access to athletes who inspire them. The global campaign launched this week, and runs throughout the year, for more information and to get involved



Kjøre project: handmade Italiano per uno stile tutto nordico

Pellami di qualità, pietra trattata e sughero sono alcuni dei materiali da  cui nascono i prodotti Kjøre Project, brand italiano dal nome norvegese dal sapore nordico, minimale e ruvido come i fiordi del mar del nord.

Ogni prodotto è realizzato artigianalmente con la massima cura e richiama un sapore vintage.

Un’idea che già da molto tempo era nella mente di Luca, partita con la semplice idea di realizzare valigette porta pc e successivamente ampliata con l’aiuto di un amico nonché ex socio; costantemente coadiuvati da esperti e stilisti del settore che non hanno mai fatto mancare il loro supporto tecnico.

Il Brand è nato per gioco e senza aver prefissato alcun obiettivo, un gioco che però sta avendo successo e sta riscontrando gli apprezzamenti del pubblico.

Ed è così che Luca, con l’aiuto di alcuni amici ed un’impiegata speciale, nonché mamma, che porta avanti la contabilità aziendale, giunto quasi al termine dei suoi studi in economia all’Università di Verona, ha deciso di trasformare questo gioco in un lavoro vero e proprio, mettendoci tutto l’amore e la passione che in questi mesi ha dedicato al progetto, scontrandosi spesso con chi era mosso esclusivamente da un input economico.

La grinta e la determinazione di Luca, l’hanno portato a presentare il suo Kjore Project al Pitti Uomo, la principale fiera italiana dedicata al mercato internazionale, ricevendo grandi consensi.

Il marchio si pone in una categoria ibrida tra concept-stores, minimal-design e negozi che strizzano l’occhio al workwear, denim e categorie affini ma anche al moderno street-wear scandinavo.

Tutti i negozi vengono serviti in tempi medi di 24/48h nel mondo.

La collezione  Kjøre Project è fortemente caratterizzata da uno stile Nordico e pulito, prodotti moderni ma che rispettano il passato, una consistenza e capacità di durata garantita per anni.
Manufatti che rimarranno inalterati nelle loro qualità fisiche ma che grazie alla loro preziosa pelle rivestita con oli naturali saranno continuamente in evoluzione nel loro aspetto e stile.

L’ultima creazione poi, in termini d’innovazione assoluta è stata la linea di covers presentata a Firenze durante Pitti Immagine Uomo 2014: sughero naturale, pietra, e carata conciata, totalmente fatte a mano e di produzione Italiana, uniche nel loro genere e stile.

I materiali, ed in particolare i pellami, sono legati ad un processo di concia sviluppato in tempi antichi, con un processo lento e laborioso che dipende dall’abilità e dalla maestria dei conciatori Italiani, appassionati e impegnati nel loro lavoro.

Pellami naturali che arrivano dalla lontana Nuova Zelanda, ed i quali invece di secchezza e screpolature sviluppano la propria patina gradualmente, cambiando aspetto e assumendo il carattere del suo utente nel tempo; cicatrici, graffi, vene e le rughe che danno ogni pezzo della  loro collezione il suo carattere unico non levigato o lucidato prima dell’uso.
Hanno scelto appositamente di non coprire le piccole imperfezioni con sigillanti vernici o finiture artificiali e sono consapevoli di come i nostri materiali appaiono dopo le 12, 18 e 24 mesi di uso pesante.

La lavorazione è interamente handmade ed il loro team di progettisti e artigiani produce ogni pezzo di Kjøre Project a mano, utilizzando lo stesso stile e gli stessi strumenti che sono stati utilizzati per creare la pelletteria per anni, non esistono fustelle in acciaio ma solo dei semplici cartoni di riferimento che utilizzano i modellisti impegnati in questo lavoro, difficile da credere ma chiunque voglia lo può vedere di persona, le loro  porte sono aperte a tutti.


Qui di seguito un breve video di presentazione del Brand:


kjøre Project, Over fifty years has passed since our founding and our commitment to producing only the highest grade footwear, now a little group of this designers team and craftspeople as well as skilled laborers has founded kjøre project , creating a new line of accessories, characterized with the Nordic style, using only rough and strongest leather, but incredibly soft.
As a Scandinavian brand of a Norwegian name with of supreme Italian raw materials, this continental element is one that touches every aspect of the company with purpose. With a narrow focus, constant learning, agile processes and creative thinking, we can continually improve the solutions and insights we share.
At kjøre project , we strive to create modern products that respect the past. All the styles in the Heritage collection are designed and built just as they were fifty, sixty and even over eighty years ago and are all made using premium leather, totally handcrafted to the specifications which made each style timeless when they were first introduced. In the end, all of these elements combine beautifully to evoke a charming elegance that is distinctly kjøre project ‘s own. Our tanning process was first developed in ancient times, the best of these stiff, are set aside for our use and each batch and color reacts differently.
This is a slow process dependent on the skill and artistry of passionate and committed tanners. It is the careful attention of dedicated tanners and their refusal to compromise on materials and the time necessary to achieve the desired result that differentiates our tanned leather from all other leathers.
Instead of peeling and cracking our leather develops its own patina, changing gradually in appearance and taking on the character of its user over time.
The scars, scratches, veins and wrinkles that give each piece in our collection its unique character have not been sanded down or buffed. We specifically chose not to cover minor imperfections with paint sealers or artificial finishes, using only clear dyes in a range of colors that enhance rather than conceal the beautiful character of our leather. We take careful note of how our materials look after 12, and 24 months of heavy use. Even now when people think that machines and technology can only make products, genuine leather still can only be worked by hand.
This is why genuine leather products made by highly skilled craftsmen are enjoyable to look at and provide a great deal of warmth.
People never get tired of possessing these fine items; our team of designers and craftspeople produced each kjøre project piece by hand, utilizing the same style of tools that have been used to create leather goods for years.
We blend classic techniques with modern mechanics to achieve the best possible treatment within each step of production, we embarked on a quest for perfection – perfection in design and perfection in craftsmanship.

solovair shoes 1881 made in uk, The county of Northamptonshire, England, has long been renowned for its boots and shoe making; the village of Wollaston just outside of Wellingborough is no exception. Until the latter part of the 19th century, shoes and boots were normally made in homes by individual shoemakers, who were paid only for the work they had ready when the collector came with his barrow to the door. Remuneration was poor and there was little security of employment.

 

In an attempt to impose some regularity of income, in 1881 five men living in Wollaston banded together to form a co-operative (a company owned and run by the people working in it), called the Northamptonshire Productive Society (NPS). Their premises were based in a dove house located in Thrift Street, Wollaston, and NPS was locally referred to as ‘the Duffers’. Luck was with them from the outset as they managed to secure an order for army boots from the Government, an order which would sustain them for the first year.

 

As industrialisation spread in England during the late nineteenth Century, demand in England and abroad for high-quality boots steadily increased. Accordingly, NPS enjoyed rapid growth and by the turn of the previous century NPS had grown to 80 employees. Consequently, NPS moved to a larger purpose-built factory on South Street, which although modified and expanded, they occupy to this day.

 

Footwear has been made at NPS with various different construction methods, including riveted and stitched, stuck-on, vulcanised and more recently Goodyear welted which is now used in all our shoe production. In the 1950’s Austrian Dr. Maerten (subsequently anglicised to Dr. Marten) and his associate Mr Funck developed a now famous air cushion sole. R. Griggs Group Ltd., who owned the rights to manufacture footwear with this technology, sought out the best local factories to manufacture footwear using this sole. NPS was an obvious choice and in 1959 the first English pair of sample boots with air-cushioned soles was welted in the NPS factory. For 35 years NPS produced Solovair (Sole-of-Air) boots and shoes under license, which were sold under the name “Dr Martens by Solovair”.

 

Times change and NPS no longer produces boots and shoes under license, but we have maintained our independence and high-quality standards. NPS patented the name Solovair in 1995 and our latest range of footwear not only maintains our original manufacturing quality, but our products have been enhanced with a new ‘Soft Suspension’ sole that improves the comfort and durability.

 

The famous production standards of NPS has secured Solovair a reputation with retailers and discerning customers, as a premium soft suspension product. Rather than have a continuous production line, which we believe offers the operative no time to notice and correct any errors, NPS is organised in areas according to distinct stages of production. Each pair is only passed from one area to another when the respective operative is satisfied they are ready. In this respect, there is a far slimmer chance that an unsatisfactory shoe or boot will result at the end of the production process. In effect it is a continuous quality control process not employed by many other factories.

 

NPS continue to remain true to their ideals, combining over 130 years of tradition, the latest technology and materials, in order to produce the best quality shoes and boots. To maintain this undisputed quality, our products will always be hand-made from start (‘clicking’) to ‘finishing’ in the UK.

style or not style?….You can learn masculine elegance ? Probably not : it is above all an innate gift . However, unlike the women , the men’s clothing is much less influenced by fashion and has been codified : not rules but feeree ways of interpreting certain clothes or situation according to accepted practices .
Icons in this style are Gianni Agnelli, Beau Brummel , Andrew , Duke of Aosta , Raul Gardini, napoletan sartorialist, english style and many other characters over the years, very important
Over time we have developed many derivations of style with various derivations very street, old materials together with those of last teconologia , such as Japan
Japan began to emulate Western fashion during the middle of the nineteenth century. By the beginning of the twenty-first century was altered into what is known today as ‘ street fashion ‘ . The term ‘ street fashion ‘ is used to describe a particular trend of fashion where the wearer customizes outfits them by adopting a mixture of current and traditional trends . Such clothes are generally home-made with the use of material purchased at stores . Japanese street fashion includes simultaneous movements of fashion very different at any given time . For example, the Harajuku Girls have a street fashion : Japanese Anime is their way of dressing and serves them to show their personality and their love for Japanimation and Manga .
Street fashion is an English term used to describe fashion that is inspired by and appropriates trends arising from clothing street . It is a personal fashion , which expresses their personality so trendy and cool . Street fashion is generally associated with youth culture and is most often seen in major urban centers . Most major youth subcultures have been characterized by a particular style of clothing.
Unfortunately, today we have lost the elegance or style in favor of a seemingly too good especially if luxury convinced that having a well may be a hallmark , and I quote this example : (source fb Valeria Folino )

“Passeggiata domenicale rilassante con un amico. Incontriamo un suo conoscente. Presentazioni. Mentre stringo la mano, non posso non notare un pataccone di Rolex orribile quasi quanto la sua pochette… Ma, del resto, oggi con miei occhiali fluo e’ meglio che mi stia zitta! Non ricordo neanche il suo nome ma, dopo dieci minuti, spara, evidentemente, la sua ‘carta vincente’: per i suoi trent’anni andrà qualche giorno col fratello a New York a luglio… New York e’ meravigliosa – esordisce – e prosegue descrivendo il bellissimo hotel di design dove alloggerà: perché io amo l’arte moderna… – incalza lui. Ah!…si accende una lucina nel mio cervello o, più che altro, una piccola bajiuor…in mezzo al buio di venti minuti di noiosissima conversazione, forse qualcosa si può salvare: andrai al MoMa, ovviamente? – ribatto io. Dunque…no, un attimo…la sua risposta merita di essere degnamente virgolettata : “mmmmhh… A NY ci sono tanti bei ristoranti italiani di livello, non voglio ingurgitare schifezze…”. E, dopo aver ‘ingurgitato’ io questa ‘ schifezza’ …sorrido, stringo la mano, lancio un ‘ ultima occhiata alla sua pochette e penso che i miei occhiali fluo …non sono poi così male… Se servono per nascondere eventuali “espressioni” del viso.”

Hoping that in the future we can develop a customized culture of the style which recommences its Italian traditions especially those that are very popular all over the world

surfboard  is a sport and lifestyle. The first historical source is contained in the diary of Captain James Cook ( discoverer of Hawaii ) : describes the exploits of the Polynesians, who at the turn of the waves at edge of surf rudimentary wood were described as people who experienced an immense joy in being carried away by the waves. The first rudimentary tables were usually built by tying together three trunks cables bent upward at the bow . The explorer James Edward wrote in 1835 in Guinea finding that ” we could watch the boys who swam in the sea, with the plates read below the belly. Were waiting for a wave , and then drag to the left bank of standing up on it as if it were a cloud. was said , however, that the sharks occasionally sbalzassero from behind the rocks and inghiottissero them ” [3] Bandit era of colonization of the Calvinist missionaries , because of the nudity exposed by the Polynesians of the time, surfing was taken up with interest in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries . A fundamental contribution to the spread of the surf from Hawaii to the rest of the world was the Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku , who, future champion swimmer discovered by a talent scout , who won the gold medal at the Olympics in Stockholm and those of Antwerp 1920 in the course of his travels brought surfing competitions on the U.S. coast and Australia . The maximum spread of surfing has taken place in the sixties and seventies, when the waves were surfed on boards rather large ( longboard ) . A significant breakthrough was the invention of the shortboard date ( tablet ) , of smaller size and with three fins ( thruster ) . Since the mid- eighties to the present day technology has evolved particularly in terms of speed and looking for manovree Airlines ( aerials ) . One of the most famous in the surfing world was Greg Noll, “Da Bull ,” which became famous in the late ’50s and ’60s.

The surfer who has won more titles and competitions of all is Kelly Slater , which in 2011 signed for the eleventh time winning the world championship professional at the age of 39 years .
