DESIGNER FOCUS: C.P. COMPANY FT. KALVIN PHILLIPS 

Who better to showcase C.P. Company in their 50th year than one of the most exciting footballers of the moment? Shot by GAFFER, Kalvin Phillips – dressed head-to-toe in C.P.’s latest garments – takes a walk through his beloved home city of Leeds.

There’s something about Phillips. Called up to England without ever having stepped foot in the Premier League, he was deemed something of a wild card. Fast forward a year, and the Leeds United player has some 19 caps under his belt, an England’s Player of the Year accolade and a firm spot in the nation’s heart as part of the team that so nearly won the Euros.

OUT OF MANY, ONE PEOPLE, WE'RE ALL LEEDS, AREN'T WE? - KALVIN PHILLIPS 

A born and bred Yorkshireman, with big love for his Irish and Jamaican heritage, he’s that pleasing blend of every man and a true one-of-a-kind. Easily spotted on the pitch with his trademark up dos and mega-watt dimples, he’s become a key part of the new gen of players that are changing the face of the game. Celebrated as much for his talent on the pitch, as his humble warmth off it.

No wonder then, that he’s the man dipped head-to-toe in C.P. Company’s threads as the Italian label pay tribute to their own heritage. After five decades in the game, the anniversary collection is full of functional, fashion-forward pieces, featuring the brand’s iconic Goggle hoods and C.P lens. A loving tribute to its terrace culture roots.
