C.P. Company and Sebago are joining forces to celebrate 50 years since Massimo Osti launched C.P. Company and his concept for Italian sportswear. The capsule collection pays homage to those aesthetic references of one of the most influential Italian subcultures.

For this collection, C.P. Company releases its M.t.T.N. windbreaker jacket in three colorways (yellow, red, and blue) as an updated replica of an archive item from the mid-1980s, which has been one of the first experiments by C.P. Company in dyeing a garment in nylon and cotton. While dyeing, the nylon is completely dyed whereas the cotton on the inside is “soiled” by the dye and assumes a lighter tone.

One of the most iconic shoes of the Sebago brand is, undoubtedly, the Portland Docksides boat shoe. Launched in 1970, it has always been the symbol of saltwater, open-air, sun, and water adventures and still carries to this day its tubular construction, genuine hand stitching, and anti-slippery outsole.

For this special capsule, the Sebago Portland Docksides has also been created in a limited edition, manually overdyed in the same colors of the windbreaker’s, making each piece unique thanks to the 100 percent artisanal dye process.
