Barbour x CP Company
by Stephen Garner

For the first time, heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour has collaborated with the celebrated Italian brand CP Company.

CP Company is renowned for its signature Mille jacket – often called the ‘Goggle jacket’. First designed in 1988, one of the inspirations behind this jacket was CP Company founder and designer Massimo Osti’s own 1960s Barbour Solway jacket. So, it is only fitting that the collaboration features a coming together of the Mille jacket with the Solway jacket in two innovative iterations that retain the best of both styles in different fabrics and colorways.

The collection features two jackets, the signature Barbour Mille wax jacket in olive and tan with three pockets, and the Barbour 500 Miglia wax jacket in olive and charcoal which is shorter in length and features four pockets. All jackets have a military and utilitarian feel with the signature CP Company ‘Goggle hood.’

The collection also features a black hoodie with an exclusive print, created especially by CP Company to celebrate this very special collaboration. The range is completed with a number of accessories including sports and trapper hats which are available in olive and charcoal colorways and a practical and contemporary backpack that is available in olive and tan.

“It was really exciting to work alongside the talented team at CP Company on this very special collection to celebrate the brand’s milestone 50th anniversary,” said Ian Bergin, director of menswear, footwear, and accessories at Barbour. “CP Company is renowned for their technical and innovative sportswear and practicality is very much at the heart of everything we do here at Barbour, so working on designs together was very natural.”

“Working with Barbour was so simple and so, so special, both from a personal and a professional point of view,” added Paul Harvey, head of design at CP Company. “I was born in Middlesbrough, in the north of England, and in our first (Zoom) meeting we actually ended up talking about the same landscapes we grew up in, Roseberry Topping included. And the pieces literally designed themselves, so close was the bond between early Italian sportswear and what Barbour were doing at that time. I think both sides knew almost automatically what the pieces would look like and that original idea simply never changed. A symbiosis ‘perfetto.’”
