What better tool to demonstrate the lightness of a cashmere scarf than a soft breeze? The Loro Piana presentation was staged on an outdoor pavilion, where colorful shawls swayed gently from large rings.

The cashmere specialist was keen to showcase how its luxurious fabrics work for warmer weather. The Gift of Kings, its most exclusive wool with a diameter of just 12 microns, was used for the first time for a women’s capsule collection, which included a summer-weight unlined navy overcoat.

Other options included a red sleeveless silk and cotton ribbed knit dress, “perfect for wearing when sailing and at beach resorts,” the brand said in its collection notes. For those summer nights when the air is chill, Loro Piana offered a featherlight vest made of bands of sheared mink and chinchilla with an organza lining.

The ultralight theme extended to the footwear, which included the 360 LP Walk Lady sneaker, whose name derives from its weight: just 360 grams.
