Icons are not immediate. They require visionary design but also visionary consumers. For a short, but intense, period in the 1980s, future icons of C.P. Company and Sebago were purchased, traded, worn, and repurposed by a group of young Italian fashion cognoscenti whose choices created the first streetwear movement in Italian fashion history.
Years later, the two brands join forces to celebrate 50 years since Massimo Osti launched C.P. Company and the concept of Italian Sportswear.
The capsule collection pays homage to those aesthetic references of one the most influential Italian subculture.
The C.P. Company M.t.T.N. windbreaker jacket, in 3 color ways (yellow, red and blue), is an updated replica of an archive item from mid-1980s, which has been one of the first experiments by C.P. Company in dyeing a garment in nylon and cotton. While dyeing, the nylon is completely dyed whereas the cotton on the inside is “soiled” by the dye and assumes a lighter tone.
The Sebago shoes is the Docksides, one of the most iconic shoes of the brand. Launched in 1970 it has always been the symbol of saltwater, air, sun and adventure.
For this special capsule, it has been created in a limited edition, manually overdyed in the same windbreaker’s colours.
