A New Age of Elegance

28th January

A double portion, left and right, of archive today as Italian design meets Scottish craft. The words of the promotion still resonate:

“Italian Coutouriese Laura Biagiotti is famed for her understated elegant clothes and her unswerving adherence to quality fabrics. It is therefore natural that she would find an affinity with beautiful hand-woven Harris Tweed®.
Its authentic Orb Marked Quality, its romantic Island origins and the glowing colours which emanate from the resilient Scottish Wool used, combine to give Harris [Tweed®] a cachet which designers find irresistible.
Here, in these exclusive designs, Laura Biagiotti explores the versatility of the tweed, creating a collection which sensitively reflects its centuries old traditions yet effectively reminds us that Harris [Tweed®] is one of today’s great fashion fabrics.
We are now poised on the brink of an era of refined dressing, where the nature, quality and finish of the fabric used is fundamental to the resulting look. The Laura Biagiotti Portfolio effortlessly takes Harris Tweed® into this new age.”
