New models stand out in the Ultralight 80 gr down selection. The vest, the sweatshirt and the nylon bomber are inspired by the fitness world with thin-stripes knit details, while the sartorial world inspires the half-sleeves shirt. New reinterpretations also for the iconic mini-cape with the mix of nylon ultralight and techno taffetà with inverted pleat for ample feminine shapes. Glam is the series in mixed cotton and lurex with Herno In-Tech – the new eco technical padding with the same performance of down.
Herno was founded in 1948 in Lesa, on the shores of Lake Maggiore, by Giuseppe Marenzi and his wife Alessandra Diana. It was just after the war and Giuseppe, having lost his job after years of working for Siai-Marchetti, which produced aeroplanes during World War II, sought a new job with a company that manufactured raincoats. The climate around Lake Maggiore is extremely humid and rainy, so well made raincoats are in demand. Herno was thus founded on the basis of opportunity, intuition and inventiveness. Its story starts with water; water from Lake Maggiore and the river Erno, which runs close to the company and gives it its name. It is a company that is still firmly connected to its roots.
