Those looking for something sumptuously soft on Bond Street should certainly pay a visit to wool and cashmere specialists Loro Piana. Creating fine products for men and women with Italian flare and the best natural materials sourced from around the world, they are the largest cashmere manufacturer in the Western world. Their level of expertise in wools is unprecedented and they go above and beyond with their collections to ensure there are some of the most luxurious knitwear around.
The Loro Piana family’s relationship with wool goes back to the early 19th century when they were merchants of the fabric and through several generations has evolved into a complete lifestyle brand. The family still part-own the company with Pier Luigi Loro Piana serving as vice president.
The range at this boutique covers shoes, knitwear, suits, shirts, ties, bags, travel and interiors. All products are treated with Storm System, an innovative technique that makes their products wind and water resistant. Ultra-premium vicuña wool products are also available, a speciality of the brand who has championed the use of this exceptional and rare material which is worth more than five times the amount of cashmere. A made-to-measure service is available on knitwear and formalwear and all products come with the option to personalise with your choice of colour, stitching and metal fixtures as well as the option to monogram your new piece. Items purchased at the store or online can also be altered by their team to guarantee a perfect fit.
