Welcome to The Luxury Channel
TRULY ITALIAN – One of the foremost luxury labels, Loro Piana has continually strived to source the world’s finest raw materials. Their passion for the protection of vicuñas and their commitment to local communities is well-known. We meet Mr. Pier Luigi Loro Piana in Rome to discover just how imbedded into the company’s DNA that philosophy truly is. We then follow the extraordinary story of the finest, most precious fabric in the world from the high Andes of Peru to the fashion houses in Milan. Loro Piana’s quest for the best raw materials has also led them to Burma, where they create exquisite linens from lotus flower stems.
We talk to Massimo Ferragamo, the Chairman of Ferragamo USA, about restoring Leonardo da Vinci’s last painting, philanthropy and Twitter, before heading to Italy in search of the perfect Italian suit and La Dolce Vita – the sweet life!
Our correspondent Lucie Shelboure shares the beauty of her Italian garden, and shows us why the garden is a luxury all in itself.
Cool, quirky and enormous fun, we unearth the origins of the Vespa – the most fun you can have on two wheels!
We also speak to Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, Chairman of Ferrari, and find out what innovations have made the brand the success story it is today….and why he hates the British rail network!
Join us as we continue to bring you insights and interviews with luxury leaders and news and events from around the world.
We hope you enjoy the fascinating people and stories that can be found here on The Luxury Channel.
