CP Company AW19 : Urban Equipment
CP Company AW19 Arrivals
Attention all goggle hood fanatics we’ve just found ourselves in the possession of a fresh batch of CP Company garments. Spanning graphic print t-shirts, overshirts, joggers, hoodies and just about everything else you could wish for, we’re sure this first glance behind the CP Company AW19 curtain will certainly pique your interest for things to come.
Promising more of the same militaristic styling and technical nuance that has propelled the Italian brand into cultural stardom, this first arrival digs its heels deep into the brand’s signature trademarks with plenty of rich garment-dyed colours, complex fabrication and lens detailing up for grabs.
To kick proceedings off it would only be right that we get things underway with all things chrome metal. An inherent component of their outerwear offering, thanks to its versatility, functional qualities and dyeing capabilities, the fabric is often seen spread evenly across collections no matter the time of year.
More recently, with the overshirt becoming a more prominent piece in contemporary wardrobes, the nylon-based material has had its moment to shine, lending itself perfectly to the jacket meets shirt combination and compounding with the classic CP design ethos to dazzling effect. Case and point these rather stunning black and blue examples below…
Taking on a somewhat more traditional silhouette than some of CP’s overshirt output the garments hold the brand’s core values of usability and practicality at their core. Boasting a diverse, almost unfair, the line-up of intrinsic properties that encompass everything from breathability to elemental resistance, the lightweight jackets come imbued with quick-drying qualities and are treated with unique colour processes for a distinctive finish. If that wasn’t enough you can also find both a zip pocket to the chest and sleeve accompanied by the unmistakable lens motif and some handy adjustable cuffs.
Elsewhere CP Company set their experimental sights on more cotton-based endeavours, using their years of clothing expertise to revamp quintessential pieces of casual outfitting. Taking the usual zip hoodie formula to its very limit, this season sees the off-duty piece bolstered out with a google lens buckle secured hood, a partially ribbed hem and two front zip pockets for a more pragmatic approach. Pair it up with the brand’s ever-on-point joggers and you’ve got yourself an ensemble presenting maximum comfort laced with an urban edge.
Sweatshirts, t-shirts and polo shirts have also received some love with not only a quality dusty pink colour on offer but a number of top-notch adaptions of CP Company’s usual callouts present and correct for all of your branded needs. Spanning subtle tonal embroidery, not so subtle argyle style patterning and tasteful patchwork there really is something for everyone to get their teeth stuck into no matter you’re your preferred approach.
With archival inspiration and a desire to innovate fuelling their steadfast sensibilities, CP Company has consistently surpassed expectations, evolving collection to collection in a way that not only pushes the brand into new territories but manages to preserve the very essence that has got them this far. It seems, based upon what we have got our hands on up until now, CP Company AW19 is set to be no different.
