Loro Piana has a history of championing a rich materiality. In the past, the fashion label has created ultra-luxurious Merino wools, denim silks, traceable linen, and buttersoft cashmere, marrying expertly produced materials with clean silhouettes and sharp tailoring.

Now, these distinctive design codes come to fruition once more, in new jewellery pieces that embody an understated elegance. Here, the classic chain is given a Loro Piana twist, with oversized links crafted from brass covered in rounded calfskin leather, making for a seamless design that eschews fastenings – they are hidden, instead, in one of the chain’s hoops.

For the full dose of coordinated Italian chic, a matching bracelet and earrings are also available to complement this chunky chain.
