C.P. was established in 1971 by Massimo, a Bologna-based young graphic designer. The company was initially known as Chester Perry. It made a name for themselves by selling screen-printed T-shirts. In the wake of lawsuits filed by Chester Barrie and Fred Perry, both claiming Osti had unlawfully used their name and surname, respectively, the brand’s name was changed to C.P. In 1978, Company was founded. This opened the door to a more experimental design approach, and a greater focus on outerwear. It attracted a wide range of international youth subcultures. Today, creative director Paul Harvey and Massimo’s son Lorenzo — who had served as president since 2019 — continue the business, which in 2015 came under the control of Chinese company Tristate Holdings Ltd.

“Working with C.P. Company is a big deal for me personally,” said Palace founder Lev Tanju. “I have been a lifetime massive fan of what Lorenzo and his family have done for not just my wardrobe but menswear and sportswear in general, they are the innovators that changed everything. The Osti family basically invented everything I like to wear except for flip flops,” he said, adding that, “I rate Paul Harvey too; he also designed some of my favorite outerwear pieces ever.”

“I’m in love with Palace since I discovered the brand years ago. Their attitude is irreverent and humble, but also humorous, with irony but with a lot more to say. Gareth was the first person I met. [Skewis] and Lev, I just had the confirmation that great brands come from great people,” echoed Osti.
