"The Mille Miglia Car race, was a one thousand miles open-road endurance race that started in 1927. From 1977 until nowadays, the name was revised in 'Mille Miglia Storica', with all competing cars being pre-1957.

In 1988 C.P. Company sponsored the race and for this special occasion Massimo Osti exclusively designed and produced, as a promotional piece for the Mille Miglia competitors, the very first Goggle Jacket. This first version was personalized with the unmistakable red arrow of the 1000 Miglia® logo and featured the hood with incorporated goggles and the watch viewer placed on the left wrist.

From the very first jacket made for the sponsoring of the Mille Miglia car race to the special edition created in collaboration with Aitor Throup to celebrate its twenty years, C.P. Company’s journey is told through the different steps of its iconic item which, season after season, has been subject to continuous transformations and experimentations. A story of materials, special treatments and shape research."
