C.P. Company knows a thing or two about innovation. Since its 1971 beginnings when the label was founded in Italy by the legendary Massimo Osti, the label has led the way with its cutting-edge fabric innovations and its first-of-a-kind dyeing techniques. Throw in an iconic piece or two – such as the Mille Miglia or Explorer, colloquially known as “Goggle” jackets, first introduced in 1988 – and you’ve got the trappings for long-term success.
That’s why C.P. Company spans generations – you’re just as likely to see a 15-year-old donning a Goggle beanie on the streets as you are a 45-year-old in a vintage Mille Miglia.
Their latest innovation comes in the shape of the P.Ri.S.M – an original C.P. Company fabric that forms the foundations of a capsule collection of three functional styles of jacket (including a new take on the Millie as seen on Slowthai), a military-style vest, a pair of cargo pants and a trio of sweatshirts. The iridescent effect is a result of its Prismatic Rip-Stop membrane composed of – we’re about to get technical – a two-tone ripstop and a transparent, ready-to-dye polyurethane membrane with a nylon warp and contrasting polyester weft.
To look at it’s a futuristic, boundary-breaking 3D effect – a collection that has been meticulously designed to within an inch of its fabric, as is the C.P. Company way, in a range of earthy tones: brass, forest greens, copper reds and a punchy turquoise. Meanwhile, the detachable lining makes for a year-round jacket which can be worn in rain, wind or shine. Sounds like a win to us.
