A DIALOGUE BETWEEN PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

DEFINING LORO PIANA’S NEXT 100 YEARS OF KNITWEAR

THE BRIEF: CREATE A FUTURE ICON

2024 marks the 100th anniversary of Loro Piana, a Maison founded on innovation, elegance, and the finest natural fibres. Combining technical expertise with the highest-quality materials, Loro Piana pieces are defined by a rich textural feel and excellent performance. This passion for quality and discrete style has resulted in timeless and discerning icons, made as elegant as they are practical.

The theme of the 2024 Knit Design Award, ‘Fast Forward Heritage,' aims to explore how Loro Piana’s heritage will translate in the next 100 years, guided by technical expertise, savoir-faire, and tradition.

Create a future icon – the piece that each participating school present must be designed up to the standard of a Loro Piana icon with rich tactile quality and functionality. It should also be timeless and relevant to future generations.
