Much-loved Italian label CP Company has begun its 50th anniversary celebrations by launching a capsule alongside inspired by the late singer-songwriter Lucio Dalla. Born in Bologna, Dalla was a close friend of CP Company founder Massimo Osti, with both men being “part of the Bologna cultural elite” of the 1970s.
The friendship between Osti and Dalla resulted in an exclusive series of CP Company garments designed for Dalla, which he wore on stage during his concerts in 1979 and 1980. The 50th anniversary collaboration draws on this relationship. Featuring six T-shirts, graphics include photographs of Dalla, a special-edition “Sketch” logo and an all-over constellation print.
Take a look through the Lucio Dalla x CP Company collection in the gallery above. The full collection is available now from the CP Company web store, with more special-edition anniversary releases expected to follow this year.
