The detail enhances craftsmanship, design rules, fabrics’ choice, tailoring virtuosity, quality and
incomparable attention; the detail lives up the extraordinary resources of Made in Italy textile and the
ones of Herno, that still promotes a dialogue between tradition and innovation.
Herno believes in details and chooses to be “no logo”, it acquires its brand awareness through specific
features that make each garment unique, recognisable and inimitable: details make the difference. In the Ultralight 200gr down jackets world the bomber becomes extra-long and has knitted neck and
cuffs; bon ton taste for the coat that exalts the waist. New shapes as: the cloak, the biker jacket and the cape with rubber macro zip closure. All these models have Polar-Tech technology, more padded than the others and with feather bag. Made in impalpable satin, performing microfiber and strong nylon Chamonix.
Back to the ‘80s, oversize shapes, cloud effect, light and embracing like a duvet for the coat with maxi
revers and the bomber with detachable hood, all made in nylon with silky effect.
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.
