Aware that effective outerwear is often made of fabrics that have a negative impact on the environment, Italian outerwear specialist Herno is taking a sustainable turn. In addition to its main collection, the brand presented a selection of eco-friendly garments, such as a nylon jacket made of recycled plastic and an ultralight goose down jacket named Fast Five — because when sealed off from oxygen, the whole garment would take five years to completely disintegrate.
New introductions to Herno’s main collection this season were a monogram down jacket in printed jacquard, both in black and gold and gray tone-on-tone. There was also a shimmering puffer jacket in velvet and lurex, wool cashmere coats and jackets in a creamy color and the brand’s first sneaker as part of its Laminar Couture Engineering range. Created in a joint venture with Scarpa and in collaboration with Goretex, the sneaker, available in four colorways, is completely waterproof.
