“LORO”, Re-Cashmere for all

For the Fall Winter 2023-2024, Loro Piana presents “LORO”, a permanent Capsule of environmentally conscious signature garments and accessories made by recycled cashmere from the maison’s knitwear production surplus. This project is aimed at effectively giving cashmere a new life and reducing the waste of precious fibres.Transcending trends, generations and genders, hence the Italian name “LORO”, which means “they”, the Capsule has been thought for everyone in a full-size range, from 8 years old children, to 4XL for women’s and men’s. Maintaining all the maison’s quality, functional and performance characteristics, the “LORO” Capsule is the quintessence of luxury and the ultimate expression of the savoir faire of Loro Piana, master in transforming the noblest fibres in fabrics with a special inimitable touch. And in renewing and lending them new value for the future.

Loro Piana has a vertically integrated production process: every step, from raw fibre to finished product, is directly controlled internally, with a continuous focus on the environment, biodiversity and local communities. This premise has led to the birth of “LORO” Capsule. Loro Piana reutilises its knitwear overflow in pure carded cashmere: any stitching, zippers or fastenings are meticulously removed by hand, and the fabric is divided into colour categories, washed, unravelled and broken down into spinning by-products, then blended with virgin undyed cashmere to create a blend of the same quality and value as new cashmere. It takes about three working days to produce just one single piece of knitwear of this precious Capsule and the result is unique thanks to the know-how of the maison, able to rework together its own fibres from different origins and to achieve such extraordinary qualitative hand feel.

Protagonists of the ‘’LORO’’ Capsule are four models of sweaters (polo, turtleneck, round neck and V-neck), a scarf and a hat with clean, contemporary lines and a unique mélange palette created mixing virgin undyed cashmere with the colours of the available recycled fibres: Grain Brown, Pure Dunes, Rain Clouds, Dusk Sky and Red Sand. Other elements of the Capsule are the 360 Flexy Walk sneakers, featherweight shoes – just 360 grams – with flexible, anti-slip technical soles and cashmere upper.
