After a summer full of bare what you dare fashions, turning to the more modest fall wear requires lush fabrics and stunning styles to make sure autumn feels cozy and never stifling. For such styles with classic flair and rich supple textures, visit Loro Piana on Newbury Street between Arlington and Berkeley Streets in Boston.
A family business for six generations, the Loro Piana family of Vasesia, Italy knows their fabrics well, as they began as merchants of wool fabrics in the early 1800’s. Today, the company claims to be “the world’s foremost cashmere manufacturer and the largest single buyer of the finest wools.” And what better way to gear up for the chilly winter ahead than wrapping yourself in the softness of their baby cashmere fibers and warmth of their never stiff woolen goods.
Fashions are made for men and women in easy to layer options – a must for the unpredictability of New England weather.
Some Loro Piana must haves that will become your fall go-to’s year after year include the baby cashmere overcoat, the classic single-ply cashmere, and the simple stand-on-its-own casual André button down shirt. Accessorizing is easy and elegant at the store as well. Options include the always appropriate everyday Globe bag in ostrich and crocodile leather, riding boots in supple leather, belts, scarves, wraps and shawls.
Cozying up on chilly evenings at home can also be touched by Loro Piana elegance with throws and blankets softer than you ever thought possible. A couch potato never looked so fabulous before!
And if you are looking to make your own one-of-a-kind Loro Piana original, personalized options are available for women’s bags, travel items and men’s shoes. Personalization is a perfect option for gifting as well. Give the man in your life a custom pair of shoes in the softest of suede or leather in the color, style of your choosing. It’s a wonderful way to tell that special someone how well you really know them.
