The Mind’s Eye by C.P. Company
Italian sportswear brand C.P. Company has just unveiled its latest collaboration with British rock star Sergio Pizzorno of Kasabian. The limited edition collection is inspired by Pizzorno’s concept of “The Mind’s Eye,” a custom designed poncho, sweatshirt and t-shirt.
C.P. Company’s head designers, Paul Harvey and Alessandro Pungetti, worked closely with Pizzorno to create a reinterpretation of the brand’s iconic Mille Miglia Goggle Jacket. “The Mind’s Eye” poncho incorporates a third lens, to represent the third eye: a philosophy central to Pizzorno’s music and stage performance. Choosing it as his stage outfit, he unveiled the design for Kasabian’s headline performance at the Isle of Wight Festival earlier this Summer.
The poncho has been created using C.P. Company’s newly developed high-performance Nyfoil; a water-resistant fabric with quick dry properties, internally coated with a metallic silver laminate. Taking design details from utility uniforms found in the brand’s archive, the poncho features a double bellow pocket with ‘C.P. Company & Sergio Pizzorno’ branding on the sleeve and back.
The crewneck sweatshirt and t-shirt are produced in cotton, with “The Mind’s Eye” three goggle graphic print in the colours of the ponchos and :C.P. Company & Sergio Pizzorno” branding on the front and back. A total of 99 ponchos will be released in orange, green or purple in bespoke packaging with an accompanying exclusive book documenting ‘The Mind’s Eye’ journey.
