No one particular jacket style has earned as much accolades this year as the 20-year old Goggle Jacket conceived by C.P. Company. The jacket created for open-top endurance racing events was recently commemorated in an event at the Henry Moore Gallery at the Royal College of Art in London. One of UK’s brightest young designers Aitor Throup had a large part in the re-design of the jacket this year and was brought on board to curate the event. The event will only be on for a short time until Saturday.

C.P. Company Goggle Jacket – Past and Future. The 20th Anniversary of an Icon at the Royal College of Art in London, curated by Aitor Throup.
Earlier this year we put together a feature on the 20th anniversary of C.P. Company’s Goggle Jacket. Each year since 1989, a new Goggle jacket had been created and for this very special occasion this year one of the most exciting young designers from the UK – Aitor Throup – was asked to design the anniversary edition. Aitor also curated an exhibition to showcase the Goggle Jacket’s past and present which premiered in Milan a few months back.
Today, this exhibition was launched at the Royal College of Art in London. Thanks to James Yeomans, Aitor Throup and the whole crew at C.P. Company, we are able to provide you with this great time-lapse video that will show you how the installation was set-up. We will also be walking around at the private reception that is taking place at this very moment over there in London.
