C.P. Company continue to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Their latest project sees a collaboration with iconic British brand Barbour. Founder of C.P. Company, Massimo Osti, has been a huge fan of Barbour for years and his favourite Barbour piece is the Solway jacket. For this collection the Solway has been combined with the popular Millie jacket from C.P. Company. Known as the ‘Goggle Jacket’, the Mille was designed in 1988 and is one of their signature pieces. The Mille and the Solway have been combined and it is available in four colourways – orange, khaki, black and yellow.
The jacket features the iconic goggle hood, alongside Barbour’s corduroy collar and checkered lining. And on the chest pocket, a red “cinquanta” tab has been added, to showcase the celebratory 50th anniversary.
There are only six jackets per colour, and each will be raffled off. Enter between 9th September to 12thSeptember to be in with a chance to buy one of these limited jackets. All proceeds will be donated to the World Land Trust – and international conservation charity that protects the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats.

Paul Harvey, designer of C.P. Company said how natural the collaboration was: “Working with Barbour was so simple and special. I was born in Middlesbrough, in the north of England, and in our first meeting we actually ended up talking about the same landscapes we grew up in. So close was the bond between early Italian Sportswear and Barbour were doing at that time.”
The collection, which includes sweatshirts, hunting hats and a backpack, will be available starting Sept. 23 on the C.P. Company and Barbour websites. You can also find it in all C.P. Company flagship stores in Milan, Amsterdam, London, Seoul and Tokyo.
