In this year’s Best of the Best, we continue to honour the brands and people who have continued to create covetable products, even in the midst of a global pandemic. Here, we have Loro Piana top the sweatsuit department
Sweatsuits may not have factored into many of our pre-pandemic wardrobes, but this year revealed the ensemble’s virtues. When the occasion calls for comfort, there are few options as dignified as Loro Piana’s lounge set. The same exacting quality that defines the brand’s sumptuous cashmere and vicuna goes into its version of cotton fleece, brushed to a softness that could easily be mistaken for Mongolia’s finest. Moreover, this suit is set apart by its cut: a single-button, spread-collared polo shirt and trim, drawstring-waisted trousers, free from the dreaded elasticated cuff.
