"The Godfather of Sportswear", this is the nickname given to Massimo Osti (1944-2005), founder of C.P. Company and the legendary Stone Island. A designer among the most influential and imitated in the last 30 years, a pioneer within fabric and garment dye research, whose innovations have forever upset the canons of the fashion world and beyond. For the first episode of nss talks we went to Bologna where his son Lorenzo Osti, President of C.P. Company, opened the doors of his father's archive and talked us through the projects, the ideas and the over 5000 items that make up the archive, the story of a man who has left his indelible mark on the history of fashion in a crucial way.
