Founded by legendary sportswear innovator Massimo Osti in 1971, C.P. Company‘s technical legacy hardly needs any introduction. As such, the Italian label’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection dives right into the nuts and bolts of its wearables for Spring/Summer 2021, exploring an experimental design approach dubbed “Natural Mutation.”
Plenty of earth-toned items are issued for the transitional seasons, delving deep into Osti’s archive of hand-treated and dyed artificial makeups for rugged all-purpose apparel. Anoraks, cargo vests, militaristic pants, sling pouches and that unmistakable Mille Miglia jacket are all revived in tangibly tweaked textiles — including Tracery designs — rife with crinkled appearances and dark buttons. Reliability as assured regardless of what climate the wearer is in, thanks to functional in-house fabrics like Dyshell and Memri, accented by some imported acquisitions courtesy of makers like Ventile.
