C.P. Company History
In 1971 Massimo Osti founds Chester Perry brand. The name is that of the factory where Bristow, the hero of Frank Dickens’ strip, works.
Garment dyeing is the name given to a process pioneered by Massimo Osti and his collaborators for C.P. Company in the early 1970s in which a garment - usually made from white or raw un-coloured fabric - is only dyed as a final manufacturing step, subsequent to being fully-fashioned, as opposed to the conventional method of manufacturing garments from pre-dyed fabrics.
In 1978 the English clothing brands Chester Barry and Fred Perry simultaneously take legal action against the Bolognese designer for, respectively, the use of their first name and surname. Massimo then decides to evolve Chester Perry into C.P. Company.
In 1979 C.P. Company transforms the nylon down jacket of alpinists into an urban jacket. The down jacket, will become an irreplaceable alternative to the woollen overcoat which, up until the 70s, had been the dominant style of winter jacket worn in Italian cities.
A/W 1982 collection is an important moment in the history of C.P. Company. Drawing inspiration from an old Dutch Motorcycle Police uniform, today lost, Massimo Osti creates a series of modular jackets with removable sleeves and collars in material combinations of knitwear, oiled canvas, leather and suede, and satin linings in gaudy colours.
In 1986 C.P. Company started a research to give the wool a wind and waterproof function while maintaing its breathability.
Massimo Osti had in his clothing archive a protective hood worn by the Japanese Civil Defence, similar to a balaclava with a zip on the front and two lenses sewn into the fabric at eye level.
A further refinement of the brand’s signature garment dyeing techinque, this anorak has been Component Dyed: the outer layer of the jacket, made from an ultralight version (80grms/sqm) of 50 fili, has been garment dyed before being attached to a membrane and inner layer.
The result is a fully waterproof and windproof 3-layer hardshell jacket with a softness and easy wearability unparalleled on the market today.
