C.P. COMPANY CINQUANTA CHAPTER 09 – The Hybrid Jacket
One of the design seeds planted in the brand’s DNA that developed through the last decades is the study of clothing that mixes functional elements of outerwear with the comfort of knitwear to create new hybrids that reflect changing ways of dressing. For the ninth chapter of its 50th Anniversary, C.P. Company wants to celebrate one of its most sophisticated technical skills: the use of multiple materials to manufacture hybrid apparel. The C.P. Company hybrid jacket, the peak of mastery of mixing multiple materials in the same piece to the outerwear category.
In 2006, Alessandro Pungetti, created a short Goggle Jacket which mixed a shearling body with nylon-cotton canvas sleeves and removable hood. The beautiful quality and details of the piece are epitomised by the hood, which is lined with suede whilst the outer uses the same double-recipe garment dyed nylon-canvas as the sleeves of the jacket.
“One of my favourite C.P. Company pieces I can remember having bought in the 1980s,” says C.P. Company designer Alessandro Pungetti, “was a leather jacket with beautiful knitwear lining… I’ve always been fascinated by the challenge of trying to combine materials that are difficult to match with each other.”
For its anniversary, C.P. Company presents re-mastered version of Alessandro Pungetti’s Goggle Jacket with contemporary fit and volume, combining shearling body with CO-TED nylon sleeves and removable hood.
The Hybrid Jacket will be available on 50.cpcompany.com and in all C.P. Company flagship stores in Milan, Amsterdam, London and Riccione starting from November 11th.
In addition to C.P. Company official sales channels, the Hybrid Jacket will be also exclusively sold on ssense.com.
