Lardini was founded in 1978 when eighteen-year old Luigi Lardini and his siblings Andrea and Lorena turned to their father to help realise their dream of creating luxurious menswear centred around a celebration of fabric and the tradition of Italian sartorialism.
A modern era menswear marvel as a result of endorsements and collaborations by Pitti Uomo heavyweights from Nick Wooster to Gabriele Pasini, the Italian family business has risen to prominence by pushing the boundaries of directional tailoring and a celebration of the meticulous workmanship and creativity which adrons every detail-rich garment.
Elegant but informal, Lardini exemplifies romanticism and experimentation, pieces are crafted with a decisive, modern taste and garments are finished with luxurious touches including the iconic Lardini flower which adrons the button holes of jackets.
An innovator in fabric and tailoring, the entire production process behind Lardini’s flawlessly tailored collections, from the design through to the production of the collections, takes place at Lardini headquarters in the Italian town of Ancona, providing the Lardini family with the hands-on control required to craft the individualistic pieces that is central to the brand’s success.
Lardini Spring/Summer 15 is available now at Harrolds and features luxuriously-tailored separates, polos and chinos.
