MILAN, May 20, 2009 / FW/ — It’s a synthesis of style, the determination of an idea as C.P. Company built its Fall 2009 / Winter 2010 collection around two elements – shoulder pieces and knitwear, and thus giving a nod to the season’s trend while making a statement of its own.
Shoulder pieces were analyzed, de-structured, re-built and declined through C.P. Company lexis; an evolved kind of sportswear, the solidity of elements, the materials expertise, the value going beyond ostentation.
It is a real and precise collection, every detail, even the most hidden one, is carefully designed. Items with a double aesthetics reveal a different and reversible functionality: wool cloth on one side, nylon on the other; the coat becomes water-proof.
The nylon down jacket has a detachable pocket, which becomes a small bag with different internal compartments. A surprise inside the garments: an orange tape outlines the sections and becomes a graphic sign, highlighting the tailoring features.
The fabrics selection, often matched with one another, combines different textures alternating opaque and shiny surfaces, the natural matter of wools with the high-tech of nylon. Treatments make surfaces unique.
The surface “fast dyed” treatment, applied on the finished wool garments, creates iridescent shading color effects.
The “Earth Dyeing” with natural earth pigments applied on leather creates light and shade effects making the color look deeper on the bomber jacket, equipped with a cotton canvas hood with face-adjustable goggles.
For knitwear, ribbed or felted thick wool, sharp-edged for sweaters that become coats were highlighted. Wool and cashmere/wool were treated in the color labs of C.P. Company using the “classic” C.P. Company ‘s garment dyeing to the progressive hand-spraying technique which allows knits to have contrasting colors, e.g. inside grey is opposed to the outside blue; the beige knit sweater is hand-sprayed in military green.
