To honor Italy’s contribution to the worlds of sportswear and textile innovation, the collection builds off the work of famed garment engineer and C.P. Company founder, Massimo Osti. Centering around the naval cues intrinsic to the brand’s DNA, some of Massimo’s most recognizable archive pieces are seen referenced throughout.
With garment dyeing — a process pioneered by Osti in the early 1970s — becoming one of C.P.’s many hallmarks, much of the capsule has been subject to advanced over-dyeing techniques, and supplemented with corroded stripes, drawing further parallels to its naval past.
Lorenzo Osti, C.P. Company President
“The idea to work on denim and, in particular, over-dyed denim, is actually something that was, and still is, core to our brands. My father always worked with fabric in this way, especially with indigo blue denim; similar to that used for this collaboration.”
The capsule encompasses an anorak, military-inspired work jacket, vests (a design and concept for which Massimo Osti shared great affinity), and utility pants. Next to this, a supplementary line of accessories, which includes bucket hats and bags come in the capsule’s hues of classic indigo blue or over-dyed pink. And finally, a selection of co-branded T-shirts and hoodies round-off the collection.
