Herno Resort proposes a travel-ready wardrobe
The Italian brand’s new collection combines comfort and chic, and is ready to pack
In partnership with Herno
Herno Resort is a new leisure time collection designed in the Italian brand’s inimitable style. A picture postcard of contemporary, vacation-celebrating essentials, the collection is luxury that is whispered, not shouted, through details and fabrics, their soft touch and feel adding to the sheer pleasure of wearing them. Cocooning materials, relaxing colours and fluid shapes make for indulgence and ease.
Herno’s knitwear is a key in vacanza element. Following the recent creation of an in-house department dedicated to knitwear at the brand’s Lake Maggiore headquarters, woollen creations are now matched with soft tailored pants to create a total look, in harmony with Herno’s famous outerwear garments.
Taking wearers from city to lakeside and up to the mountains – in wool, ultralight nylon, cotton and bouclé – Herno Resort is a journey in itself.
The collection comprises knitwear and outerwear must-haves for vacations, designed to be easily folded and packed. Herno’s wool sweaters – in round-neck or hooded and zipped versions – come in pastel colours detailed with inlays depicting large waves.
Sweatshirts are decorated with ultralight nylon braiding applied on the arms for womenswear, or with a simple tone-on-tone logo for menswear.
Ever since Herno was founded in 1948 in the northern Italian town of Lesa, outerwear has been essential to the family-run brand’s collections. For 2022, its outerwear staple is made of opaque nylon with light padding and folds down into a practical pouch. The same collection includes a packable cape and a parka for women, and a vest and a blazer for men.
For chilly, late summer nights? A parka in unlined boiled wool, with knitted cuffs and adjustable drawstrings for her, and a four-pocket jacket for him, in colourways ranging from lilac and teal to blue and butter. There’s also a classically proportioned bomber jacket in ultralight nylon, characterised by soft sleeves in bouclé wool knit.
At your holiday destination, comfort, elegance and luxury are required. For evening cocktails on the hotel terrace, a women’s cape in pure soft wool, wraps the shoulders like a warm blanket. A cape is a Herno classic but its holiday version is rendered in double jacquard chenille with tricot effect. Or try a Herno sweatshirt made of three materials – cotton for the body, nylon for the hood, and English-knitted wool on the cuffs and hems.
Herno Resort also provides an over sweater with sloping shoulders, maxi-braids detailing and nylon sleeves padded with goose down; and a cosy cardigan in a shaved wool knit and lined in nylon.
Men’s sweaters are in pure new wool, or zipped and lined in nylon. A tricolour sweatshirt is made of gauzed cotton. Team with Herno’s iconic bomber jacket interpreted for the Resort collection in a college style – featuring boiled wool, unlined with knitted sleeves in contrasting colours or made from tweed-effect wool jersey, padded with goose down.
Buone vacanze, as they say in Lake Maggiore. §
