CHANGE OF SPACE

INTO THE WILD

Text by Francesca Fontanesi

The Loro Piana expertise comes forward in the Into the Wild collection. Technical fabrics paired with fine silks and cashmeres are expertly crafted to withstand the elements.

A connection with nature is part of the Loro Piana mindset: fostering experience as the quintessence of dressing and style as en plein air enjoyment, in contact with elements. Into The Wild is Loro Piana fully embracing hiking and the outdoors, with a focus on technical performance and innovation. The collection comprises both womenswear and mens, complete with accessories.A sense of adventure permeates garments designed to be enjoyed outdoors: bomber jackets, hooded parkas, anoraks, rainproof capes, vests, jumpers, trousers, leggings and shorts are meant for use in the wild, but also in the metropolitan landscapes and in any condition. The looks are layered, allowing one to peel off or add strata according with needs and occasions. Gloves, collars, bucket hats, socks and backpacks complete the offer. The sense of modularity is underlined by an organic palette that fuses notes of Rosemary Green, Ancient Sage, Brown Antelope and Black Coffee with dashes of Sand and Nougat and touches of Black, Jasper Coral Orange and Periwinkle.

The Loro Piana expertise comes forward in the mix of technical fabrics and precious silks and cashmeres, all treated to resist the elements. Natural fibers such as wool come with three-layer technical membranes that enhance their natural performance – protecting against wind, cold and rain. The high performing garments feature another true Loro Piana technical innovation, the Graphene, a membrane with outstanding heat-conducting properties, distributing body heat evenly for ultimate comfort.

 

 

The outdoors and being into the wild are affirmed as a state of mind.
