Italian Sportswear brand C.P. Company launches its SEED program in its Spring/Summer 2023 collection. SEED is the brand’s ongoing program focused on finding ways to reduce the environmental impact of garment making, like eliminating waste, circular manufacturing, using local materials, and shortening the production chain.
The brand’s SS23 SEED collection is divided into SEED 1 and SEED 2. SEED 1 focuses on locally-grown and sourced fibers like nettle and hemp blending with organic cotton to produce a final material similar in quality to linen but stronger and stiffer. This new fabric makes its way into structured pieces like hoodies and t-shirts. Highlight pieces in the SEED 1 capsule collection include a Reversible Ortica Twill BB Google Jacket in two colorways, Tela Ortica Overshirts, Fleece Graphic Sweatshirts, Ortica Fleece Goggle Hoodies, and Canapa Jersey Graphic tees.
SEED 2 features materials like Eco-Chrome, created using upcycled fishing nets, and Re-Cycled pieces that use a mix of recycled fleece and organic cotton. Highlight pieces in the SEED 2 capsule include Eco-Chrome Goggle Jackets, Eco-Chrome R Overshirts, Re-Cycled Fleece Graphic Sweats, Re-Cycled Fleece Goggle Hoodies, and organic Re-Cycled Jersey Graphic tees.
Pieces in the SS23 SEED Collection range from $185 for the tees to $1,485 for the Reversible Ortica Twill BB Google Jackets. The entire SS23 SEED collection is available now from the C.P. Company website.
