CP Company Taylon P Jacket : Urban Protection Series
Revealing the latest addition to their function-first arsenal of key outerwear pieces, the CP Company Taylon P Jacket marks the brand’s return to its roots, reinstating the 1998 Urban Protection line alongside a pool of military influences and hyper technical innovation.
Originally developed to make clothing suited to the needs of city dwelling folks, the Urban Protection Series was created by Moreno Ferrari’s during his time spent at the helm of the Italian sportswear brand. Taking wildly futuristic concepts, the collection gave way to some of the most left field designs in CP Company’s history including the LIFE Parka which saw built in noise cancelling earphones, the voice recording REM jacket and the LED jacket, a piece capable of detecting levels of air pollution.
Carrying on the forward-thinking vision through experimentation with taslanising, this newest instalment presents CP Company’s latest bespoke creation, Taylon. The process by which yarns are passed through a high pressure air stream to add texture, the resulting finish is a material which feels more like a spun fabric. Engineered in both a lightweight variation which makes use of a 100% taslanised nylon for a matt finish, cotton like feel, the material is famed for its use by infantry personnel due to its easily camouflaged, non-reflective nature. These particular jackets however makes use of the ‘Pesante’ or ‘heavy’ alternative, a hybrid mixture of both taslanised and monofilament nylon, it takes on a more substantial, almost woolen appearance, with the difference in sheen between each component making it perfect for garment dyed shades.
Making up the majority of its carrying capacity with two front zip patch pockets, the jacket also comes with smaller compartments to both the sleeve and waist for additional space. Presented in both a subdued black and vibrant red it boasts a removable branded velcro patch to the front as well as adjustable button cuffs for a more tailored fit. Gifted with intrinsic weather resistant properties and equipped with a fixed peak hood to help keep the elements at bay, the jacket comes finished with a built in face mask which can be stowed away, removed and deployed with ease at the wearers discretion.
