We have a love/hate relationship with Loro Piana, the brand consistently produces ultra luxury pieces with a spezzatura style making it perfect for the casual elegant style the brand promotes, but on the other hand, it has a tendency to suggest unrealistic products, such as the "scratchproof" sunglasses made from rare earth metals, which are now well documented as scratching, and also creates excessively old pieces, like the fur heavy cardigans unsuitable for almost all but the most gauche consumer.
But one thing we can all agree on is the Roadster is their absolute best style, goes with virtually anything, and has that casual elegance in spades. We are happy to announce their best style has been released in a new version, the roadster "Pad".
Crafted from Winmate stretch, with a cashmere knitted lining, hip length, with a fitted cut. and detachable bib, waterproof, warm and light-weight, it is a new version of a classic style, supremely practical for city living, leisure time and travel.
Available now in a rich shade of royal blue, it costs £1,980.ravel.
