CP Company’s Storefronts: A Creative Design That Tells the FW23 Collection’s Story

For the Autumn/Winter 2023 season, CP Company’s storefronts in Milan took center stage in their promotional campaign. The concept for this initiative was curated by Jordi Van Der Oord, the renowned creative director specializing in spatial and digital experiences for global brands, while its actual execution was entrusted to Manaly.

The project involved creating artistic installations behind CP Company’s windows, inspired by the distinctive materials of the Autumn/Winter 2023 collection, with a creative and dynamic approach.

Continue reading the article to discover how we brought the four CP Company windows to life!

Toob – Inner Tube

TOOB is the abbreviation for Inner tube. On a base of colored cotton, a thin double layer of opaque polyurethane is layered. The slight interaction between these two layers gives an aged rubbery appearance, while the transparency of the outer coating on the seams completes the desired effect.

The first of the four CP Company windows was conceived based on this characteristic. Two structures with aluminum profiles were created, inside of which an inflation and deflation system of tubes was integrated. The combination of these components recreated the image of an inner tube, providing a dynamic backdrop for the clothing.

Micro M – Terrarium

Micro-M (R) represents the contemporary evolution of C.P. Company’s iconic 50 Fili fabric. This innovation replaces traditional cotton yarn with a hydrophobic polyester microfiber and nylon with a specially recycled version.

The terrarium concept, realized inside the store, was directly inspired by the principle underlying Micro-M. The structure was designed around two mannequins showcasing the featured clothing, and natural elements such as soil, sand, and stabilized plants were introduced inside, aligning with the company’s sustainability concept.

CP Program_3 – Carding

C.P. Program_3 constitutes the third chapter of C.P. Company’s project, focusing on alternative production methodologies and the use of natural resources to minimize environmental impact in the clothing industry. This laboratory concentrates on waste elimination, promoting circular economy, employing research materials, and reducing the production chain.

The third installation fully embodies this concept. We devised an industrial plant with motor-driven rollers, gears, and chains. Traditional carding rollers worked the wool at the top and bottom of the structure, while in the heart of the installation, two rollers displayed a moving image, serving as a backdrop for the showcased garment.

DUFFEL & JAQUARD – Tapestry

C.P. Company’s distinctive approach, merging technological innovation and aesthetic experimentation, is renewed by exploring the possibility of transferring Jacquard patterns to wool fabrics with the new Duffel coats.

This technique was implemented in both the traditional Montgomery style, characterized by refined toggle closures and a striped design, and in a more contemporary construction with a hood.

The last CP Company window featured the creation of a knitted tapestry inspired by the Duffel & Jacquard collection patterns, positioned as a backdrop for the clothing. Over time, the tapestry was designed to unravel. For this, a lower “thread winder” was designed to pull and gather the thread until complete unraveling.
