Ease and precision define the spirit of the Loro Piana Fall Winter 2020/2021 Collection. Against the backdrop of a metropolitan landscape, a malleable wardrobe of luxuriously simple, easy to interpret pieces unfolds following the hours of the day and the days of the week, as the mild formality of working attire gains an elegant lustre and subsequently softens into the relaxed sophistication of leisurewear. The movement is a matter of both forms and colours: while the cold nuances of the concrete jungle give way to the muted neutrals and sudden bright peaks of the countryside, outdoors and indoors dialogue seamlessly, and the masculine tingle of tailoring is toned down by hints of fluid femininity. All these elements are nonchalantly and endlessly layered, conveying a multifaceted message that, as ever for Loro Piana, is timeless and multisensorial. The eye is pleased just as the touch is; shapes follow the body naturally, empowering the woman with ease.
