C.P. Company designers Paul Harvey and Alessandro Pungetti are clearly passionate about fabrics. Using complex garment dyeing procedures and innovative fabric development, the designers reworked Royal Navy outerwear classics with a focus on detailing and understated color.
The nylon of one khaki parka was treated to have the appearance and handle of cotton. It was detailed with a Shetland wool check and then garment dyed to give the finished piece a nuanced tonality. Elsewhere a black storm coat had the look and feel of PVC but was actually polyurethane-coated cotton, while fleece panels in a khaki and orange down jacket had the effect of layering a hoodie under a puffa jacket.
Repeated throughout the collection was a set of goggles built into the hoods of jackets – a reference to the jacket created by the brand in 1982 for the Mille Miglia race.
