Loro Piana delivered a chic and typically luxurious collection that paid homage to Milan and its entryways with travertine staircases and marble columns. The inspiration was translated into painstaking handicraft put into every item and with a color palette nodding to the city’s architecture and its muted tones, such as ivory white, burgundy and terracotta brown juxtaposed with yellow and forest green.
The look: A luxurious take on everyday attire with a bourgeois flair for quintessentially Milanese ladies wrapped in baby cashmere overcoats and mélange knitwear, the latter rendered in body-hugging separates with pants and skirts that were in tune with the ongoing leisurewear trend.
Standout pieces: Leisurewear-inspired separates, matching cozy baby cashmere pants with chunky knits; speckled full skirt paired with a shrunken knit; supple lamb leather trenchcoats with handmade stitching details; rib knit pajama-style flared pants with matching turtleneck; a dégradé knitted pencil skirt paired with coordinated cropped sweater; a luxurious tuxedo with a shearling cardigan-style blazer; silk tunic dresses printed with optical graphic motifs in black and white; a statement-making melange gray long coat with power shoulders and contrasting lapels in black and white.
Takeaway: Premium fabrics and subtle details blended with a refined taste for flattering silhouettes made this collection desirable and chic, filled with wardrobe essentials that telegraphed a laid-back elegance.
