|Latest & Greatest|
By Elizabeth Ginns Britten — February 2005
Boatbuilders are always trying to make yachts sleeker and more luxurious, and while the exterior looks are important, it’s just as crucial that those aboard should enjoy that same panache.
Enter Milan, Italy-based Loro Piana, which specializes in high-end items for the home and body. Its latest At Sea and In The Air line was designed specifically with megayacht clientele in mind. It features T-shirts, bags, shorts, bathing suits, jackets, bathrobes, blankets, and more, geared toward owners, guests, and crew alike. Each is available in a choice of fabrics (cotton, linen, or cashmere) and colors, and each can be monogrammed and made water- and windproof.
The company says it
also offers personalized service with each order, “from the first
contact, through the design process, straight through to delivery,”
for an added level of sophistication.
