Description

As vintage couture clothing becomes more and more collectible, the

next step is no surprise: collectible sweatshirts. Specifically, the

incredibly beautiful, heavy-duty high-school sweats from Best

Company in the 1980s, designed by Italian designer Olmes Carretti.

Decorated with motifs derived from nature and sports, based on

precise natural studies and drawings, these high-quality sweatshirts are

deeply appreciated for their design artistry. Graphic design wizards

VIER5 visited Carretti at his home in Reggio Emilia and created this

absorbing book, including dazzling photos documenting individual

shirts, explanatory texts and interviews with the designer. Best

Company closed almost 20 years ago, and it has since achieved cult

status: this book shows why.

Including an Interview with Olmes Carretti by Vier5

Texts by Alec Lobrano, Manuela Cassara,and Franca Miele

Limited edition of 500 copies.

ISBN-13: 978-3940215000
