Storm System® is the registered Loro Piana mark indicating natural fabrics that have been made totally waterproof and wind resistant by combining natural fibres with the most advanced technology in a perfect synthesis of style and function.
Storm System® consists of a double barrier: the water-repellent Rain System®, and the exclusive hydrophilic membrane that is resistant to water, windproof and allows the skin to breathe.
Rain System® treatment ensures that drops of water slide on the surface of the fabric, enhancing its impermeability and protecting it against dust, dirt and liquid stains.
The thin and extremely light micromolecular and microporous absorbent membrane is applied to the back of the fabric. Exploiting the principle of osmosis, the aqueous vapour produced by perspiration wicked outwards while humidity in the surrounding environment is prevented from entering: this guarantees absolute transpirability and provides optimal wind protection.
Storm System® treated fabrics are used for the wide range of iconic garments that Loro Piana originally designed in order to respond to the needs of active men and women.
Storm System® provides the wearer with clothing that is warm but light, versatile and comfortable, and suitable for confronting the most different climates with style and grace: windcheaters, casual jackets and overcoats designed to be worn in the city, during leisure moments, and when travelling, and made using the noblest fibres that have been made waterproof and wind resistant without losing any of their distinctive softness, in a perfect combination of select quality and practicality.
