The First Collaboration Collection
For the very first time in history, C.P. Company collaborates with the leading heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour. The C.P. Company is founded by Massimo Osti, also referred to as the ‘godfather of urban sportswear’, after he renamed his Chester Perry brand in 1971.
One of the most iconic jacket style of the Barbour brand, Mille jacket, mixed with the C.P. Company ‘Goggle hood’ are the cornerstones of this collaboration.
The Collaboration Collection
The C.P. Company x Barbour collection features two jackets, the signature Barbour Mille wax jacket in olive and tan with three pockets and theBarbour 500 Migliawax jacket in olive and charcoal which is shorter in length and features four pockets. All jackets have a military and utilitarian feel with the signature C.P. Company ‘Goggle hood.’
Within the collection are also a black hoodie added with an exclusive print which is created especially by C.P. Company to celebrate this very special collab between both strong companies. Next to these core pieces, the collab collection is completed with several accessories including sports and trapper hats which are available in olive and charcoal colorways and a practical and contemporary backpack that is available in olive and tan.
Ian Bergin, Director Barbour About The Collaboration
Ian Bergin, Director of Menswear, Footwear & Accessories, Barbour said: ‘It was really exciting to work alongside the talented team at C.P. Company on this very special collection to celebrate the brand’s milestone 50th anniversary. C.P. Company is renowned for their technical and innovative sportswear and practicality is very much at the heart of everything we do here at Barbour, so working on designs together was very natural.’
Paul Harvey, C.P. Company Designer About The Collaboration
Paul Harvey, C.P. Company designer: “Working with Barbour was so simple and so, so special, both from a personal and a professional point of view. I was born in Middlesbrough, in the north of England, and in our first (zoom) meeting we actually ended up talking about the same landscapes we grew up in, Roseberry Topping included. And the pieces literally designed themselves, so close was the bond between early Italian Sportswear and what Barbour were doing at that time. I think both sides knew almost automatically what the pieces would look like and that original idea simply never changed. A symbiosis “perfetto”.
Availability Of The Collab Collection
