SHOP THE STORY

"Demons allow us to see our failings, to see our nemeses and nightmares – and it is by confronting these demons that we become more human. The idea of the jacket and flight cap is a protect and survive strategy. We’re trying to make a survival kit – an extra emotional armour to fight the demons without and within. We hope the collaboration enables the wearer to do just that – to be ready, but also to be kinder, more generous and more human"

The G Foot x C.P. Company partnership follows a collaboration between Gorillaz and C.P. to create specially designed full length hooded cloaks for Demon Dayz  Festival held at Dreamland Margate in June 2017.

For the opening of  Gorillaz’ headline performance, the C.P. Company cloaks were worn by the ‘Cult of Humanz’, a parade of 50 individuals who formed an ominous procession towards the stage before descending and leaving the remaining cloaked figures to be revealed as Damon Albarn and Gorillaz musicians.

 “The Gorillaz project came about through conversations I had with Jamie and Damon about their influences for the new album campaign. I devised a concept called "Cult of Humanz", a mythical group of cloaked soldiers who only operate at night.

I had incorporated the C.P. Company aesthetic into my very first designs and concepts, as it made the most obvious collaboration for me for the concept. Jamie and Damon both loved the shape of the Moroccan Jellabah hood, I worked with Paul Harvey and Block 9 to bring these shapes and characters to life.” Harris Elliott, Visual Storyteller.
